Well, I wouldn't say so if you're expecting XiP813 this fall or winter ...
But do we? I think the 922 was actually shown at CES two consecutive years before it actually became available.
The XiP hasn't been shown anywhere yet has it? We might still be a ways off before that sees the light of day.
Also, the 922 like other receivers didn't come out of the gate firing on all cylinders... so usually Dish likes to have something else stable around when they introduce the next big thing.
As for the CSRs and not pushing the 922... I honestly wouldn't be surprised if there has been customer backlash from two areas:
1. the $200 upgrade fee
2. poorly informed installations
That fee isn't a cheap one... so people expect a lot... then they can't use their receiver right for a couple of days... and not all the installers apparently are informed about what to expect with the 922. We also have reports of customers who receive replacement 922 receivers having difficulty activating them and taking the first firmware update.
I wouldn't be surprised if Dish is taking a step back to isolate their internal problems... before going back to pushing the 922 once they figure out how to fix those customer issues.
It may also be worth considering... Echostar makes the 922. Dish is essentially buying the 922 from Echostar... Echostar could sell that receiver to cable or other satellite companies... and at one point I thought we were hearing that part of the split of Echostar and Dish was to pursue just that sort of thing... Echostar making hardware not just for Dish. Maybe that plays a part sometimes too.
