As a DirecTV sub I must say that the 922 does sound pretty impressive.

man, as a D* sub I can honestly admit that I am extremely jealous....:D


Agreed.

After Dish bought Slingmedia we knew it was only a matter of time before Dish came out with a DVR with placeshifting. Looks like DIRECTV has some catching up to do.

Is it Slingbox Pro-HD compatible or just Slingbox SD? I was looking at a Slingbox Pro-HD for my Mac Pro/iPhone but would be willing to wait on the 922 if it's Sling HD and priced right.

Although I am a DirecTV subscriber, I have to say that when this comes out I will seriously have to think about switching. DirecTV's last few HD DVRs have provided no innovation or real new features. The 922 seems to be loaded with new and valuable features. Unless DirecTV comes up with an answer for this soon, I think I am gone.

It does look very impressive. It's nice to see some actual interesting innovation in DBS.

It's funny, I think the Iphone/Ipod touch has changed everying in the way of consumer electronics. Everything will move toward that type of technology. My son just got an Ipod touch, and I'm blown away by the thing.

It says it is ™ HD DuoDVR™ Can we assume it has dual HD tuners. I haven't seen the outputs yet.
Very impressed!

What in the world does Dish Network have to do with the transition of locals to digital?

DISH Network offers a coupon qualified DTV converter box and has announced a DTV DVR.

Wow! This is some very cool stuff! Well done!

The shot of SlingGuide on Engadget makes me very envious!! :D

It has five "digital inputs". Minimum of three like all the current VIP dual tuners. But since it can also record HD VOD and playback through broadband in the background, maybe four HD tuners? And if it is like the 722k that has two OTA tuners, it is possible to have all five HD tuners.

Thats a bit harsh. Instead of new models for new features, Directv is pushing software updates for all models (HR20/21/22/23) with new features and they are working up to things.

Directv2PC, Widgets, OnDemand, Quicktune, MediaShare, are all things that have been added and are improving.

I hope this will be a push for Directv to work on a new HD version of the gui for their receivers though ;)

The problem with this theory is that DIRECTV omitted some hardware required for some of the most sought after features of the competition's DVRs in the current platform. Time spent on workarounds is arguably wasted.

The following is a list of DISH Network DVRS that are expected to be compatible with SlingGuide at launch.*

HD DuoDVRTM SlingLoadedTM ViP® 922 (Just Announced)
DuoDVR™ ViP® 722k
DuoDVR™ ViP® 722
DuoDVR™ ViP® 622

*Receivers require a broadband network connection to use SlingGuide.


What is a DuoDVR ViP 622 and how does it differ from a plain vanilla ViP 622? Or does it? The Dish Network site has no mention that I can find. I have 2 622s and would like to know if I would need to upgrade one to this DuoDVR ™ model to take advantage of this new SlingGuide feature.

I am very jealous, but at the same time those specs seem to indicate a hefty price tag is in the future.

Not so sure about the mouse like touchpad control though as the photos at engadget would indicate...

I may walk over to their booth tomorrow and take a peak if I can...
