3 Would be a tall order, and "most" likely wont happen. 2 you could get, but not 3 of them on lease.

What if one of the three is not a 922, but still something that is HD and supports viewing recordings from a network connected 922?

It will depend on how many leased ViP's Dish will let you have.
Considering that the ViP922 will count as a Dual unit for TV purposes, seems like you will only be able to lease 2 of them or 1 ViP922 and 1 ViP622/722(at least for now) if you need 3 and depending on "When" it starts to ship, you may want to find a ViP622/722 on Ebay or something. I just picked up a Brand new ViP722 for $285. Some have been able to get 3 Leased Recievers of the x22 type, but that doesn't seem to be the norm though.
So here is to "WITH LUCK" the August launch of the ViP922.

Hmmm...OK. I have three HDTVs and all have HD-DVR capability. Not getting that would be a deal breaker with DISH getting my business away from DirecTV. Maybe their new TIVO units will be better than what I have now, assuming they see the light of day.

the 922 looks great, I just don't like the remote. It would be nice if they made a second verision paired with a remote with arrow keys and hardware keypad.

if it's a 200 dollar upgrade (which I doubt) then I can't wait :)

I already have a slingbox so I'll get to have an extra stream :P

Wonder how long it will be before Harmony comes out with a universal remote that will have a track pad like that? I like the track pad but I like having 1 Harmony remote for everything more.

They probably won't. There's no reason to spend all the R&D money on a new remote just to support one device. Take a look at the PS3, people give Harmony a hard time because they don't have a model that supports Bluetooth to operate the PS3 Blu-Ray functions. Again, why add the cost of a BT radio that will only be used by one device. If this new pointer-based GUI would be the start of a new standard in consumer electronics, then there's more of an incentive to support such a interface.

Any word on when these might be released? I'm looking to switch to Dish because they offer my locals, but I want to wait for the 922. Any insight is appreciated!

The January press release was vague: "DISH Network will offer the ViP® 922 to customers in Spring 2009."

During the last Tech/Charlie Chat they mentioned June time frame, but I given we are talking a complex box with I am sure complex software I would not count on that time frame being a hard one. Even when it does release, I would expect short supply and give it about 6 month to a year for the box to fully stabilize.

As the software was substantially demonstrated at CES, I doubt it was very far from being done in January.

Well it's May 5th and I been search via the web any more info on time frames on the release, and found nothing. I am surprised it's not being talked about much. Or even cost to upgrade ext. Anyone heard anything at all?

I've been thinking about the 922 lately as well. My 622 is starting to act more and more goofy so I can't wait to upgrade.

That's what they do. They put flaky software on the units they want people to upgrade 3-6 months before releasing the new one. :lol:

I have been informed that the 922 will only work with the 30.0 remote.

Fall if your lucky...
2010 probably more likely...

happy dvr'n...
