JVC does not make Dish products. There was a JVC IRR (Integrated Receiver/Recorder) some time ago. All other Dish products have been made by Echostar Communications. They used to have their factory in Fountain, CO. Now, all receivers are produced at Echostar's factory in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Wow... That's just really not correct. Did they teach that to you in CSR class?
Four universal truthes:
1. All is fair in love and war.
2. Nothing is absolute but death and taxes.
3. "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former." --Albert Einstein

4. If you think the above three things shouldn't apply to you, e-mail CEO@dishnetwork.com.

The first 2 sentences are correct. JVC receivers other than the DSR-100 are the result of badge engineering. I wouldn't know about the rest.

Oh, and before we forget, Booklady103 you will want to get a 625. Only Dish/EchoStar receivers will work with Dish. Check with on-line or local dealers.

My 921 box and manual says JVC all over it...but I am kind of literal that way.
