How much are you willing to pay? $300? For a leased unit?

"transfer content within a home network"
So looks like some form of MRV is coming to Dish as well.

Anyone who can get to their booth please don't forget to ask this two most important questions:

1) What is the ETA? Spring of 2009 but which part? Spring can turn into fall:)

2) How much to lease, how much to buy, for new subs and for exsiting subs, respectively.

If it's Slingbox HD and not just Slingbox SD I'll wait and pay $300. Anyway to tell?

Unfortunately it will not be available at the roll-out, and if the roll-out is delayed, it can be the end of the year or even next year. Hope not.

I'd be looking towards the D* HR21 Pro pricing model. If it does have two HD outputs, it will require some serious installation expertise.

It should be better than Slingbox HD in that the HD can be streamed in the background. The current Sling HD Pro will take over the VIP box, meaning if one is streaming on the road, the other at home must watch the exact same show at the same time.

Sling software has always been impressive, so that makes me excited. I've been waiting to hear more on this since they announced it last year, and it looks even better than I expected. This combined with a lower price (compared to D*) for programming has me on the fence. Come Spring, I can see myself switching to E* for the first time.

I meant to "Coming", in my original comment.
This is the 1st time Dish has ever even mentioned, anything along the MRV lines. I do Realize "coming" and "soon" with any company product is a very VAGUE term.

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 ;)

Playing a wee bit of Devils advocate here, 2 Beta features and 3 released. Yes it is a step forward but DirecTV may need to increase the pace somehow. I appreciate the work DirecTV is doing but they could see some churn with competition doing things like this.

Love the iPhone shot. Notice in the top left, to the right of "AT&T" is the WIFI symbol. Don't expect to ever stream this content over 3G. It still makes the box a must have for my home and iPhone. There are plenty of McDonald's and Starbucks out there in the network.

For DISH Network customers with select DVRs, SlingGuide will provide a personal, integrated and centralized view of everything you want to watch or record on DISH Network including programming from hundreds of channels, thousands of programming choices, and even internet video from Sling.com.

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


Am I reading this right that this basically adds web scheduling to the 622/722 including the Iphone option? Very sweet

So far, what I've read about the 922 is NOT too impressive to me. I already have a Slingbox Pro so the web scheduling means nothing to me. The larger hard drive means nothing to me since I never get even close to the limit. The only thing that interests me is the dual OTA tuners. I haven't heard anything about another very interesting feature that I would like to see? For the HD material (1080p, 720p, 1080i), is it going to be able to decode (or pass on to an HD capable receiver) the HD audio formats (Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD Master, etc.)? That is the question that someone should ask if they're lucky enough to go over to the E* booth.

DuoDVR means that the device serves up two live output streams. Since the existing ViP DVRs aren't listed as HD DuoDVR, one might assume that the ViP922 could output two HD streams.


From what the press realease says, it appears that they will do that through homeplug.

When the 922 was announced a few months back I though big deal, I already have a Slingbox. But with all the new features of the 922 I'll seriously look at getting one.

How would one use a Harmony One remote with this since there is a no touch pad? I hope they included the ablilty to use a regular remote with directional keys to navigate, I cannot imagine they would leave that out. I still don't think I could give up my Harmony One, so that would kinda negate the neat mouse type GUI!

As the owner of 2 622s (one is actually leased) I can't wait for the release of the SlingGuide software and I'll be very tempted to upgrade one (or both) to the 922 when possible - even if it's at a premium to do so. I think the new remote shows some serious outside-the-box thinking although I guess you could argue it's just a copy of technology used in the Ipod Touch/Phone and a Wii remote. Either way I'm very, very impressed with the first look, a lot of times when a company buys another one it never really integrates the two in any meaningful way but it looks like E* has done it right.

There is a keypad on the screen, so it looks like you/I will still beable to use our Harmony's, with the old fashion keypads.

I read that the new remote will have an updatable remote database so it appears that this remote could take the place of the Harmony.

Doesn't look "that" impressive. The rear looks just like my 722, I really DOUBT it has HD to TV2 (has same coax port as my 722). Without dual HD tuners it doesn't impress me. I'd rather see on-line capabilities expand with the 722. I'd probably never use Sling... I'd just be that much less productive at work...
