    I'm #68 on the DD list. It was nice to see their weekly status report last week, but so far, no new updates. I popped off an e-mail to the CEO's office asking for the real word on what's happening. I've been with these guys since their launch, but I'm starting to lose my patience. After all of the intial delays and now this, UGH!! :confused:

    If I get anything back that's substantive (the key operative word), I'll post it. I'm not, however, holding my breath.

    That is where I bought mine from. Very nice guy to deal with. I am in Denver, bought it through him via E-Bay and he had it on a UPS truck within an hour. I did pay a little extra (God bless capitalism) but it's worth it for me. I got sick of my wife complaining about not being able to watch Survivor and record friends at the same time. My local dealers (on which I was on 4 different waiting lists) told me at least April. OTA bugs are there, but I can deal with it since I also have an OTA tuner on my Sony Widesreen.

    He was a little reluctant to sell it to me until I explained to him that I was VERY aware of the bugs and the inital 45 minute download of software etc.

    Now they'll have to pry my 921 from my cold dead fingers!

    Scott , that makes a lot of sense.
    Also it gives me hope , because they should continue production , building units and then putting them on hold only at a certain point of their routing .
    Hopefully 90% complete. Maybe you could ask your friend if they are indeed building inventory and then putting them on Quality Assurance hold.
    Release the Hounds!!

    topom, Consider yourself lucky. I called that guy right after he posted. He told me the price and I decided I could wait a little while longer. I think I was the first one to call him. Anyway, congrats on your purchase. You may be the last one to get one for awhile.

    I bought mine today. I was told by my local dealer at least 30 days, probably 60. I bid on one on Ebay and then figured I'd call one other dealer. Surprise! He had one left so I told him I'd take it, gave him a credit card to hold it and then sweated for a couple of hours until I got outbid on Ebay. It ended up going for $1,225 plus shipping. Yesterday, an hour after I made the deal, Dish called and tried to get the unit back. Sorry. I picked it up today, still in the box. Dish install on Monday.

    I hope you are right. If the bugs are software-related, they should be continuing to manufacture the units, holding them until the software is patched. But if the bug is hardware-related, we may be in for a longer wait.

    You left out the part where they show the HUGE GRIN on my face (in HD), for at least owning the 921 before my untimely death!
