Will the 722K ever have the capabilities to receive the same GUI guide as the 922?

The DISH GUI is long past due for a major upgrade across the board. I was even hired to do it at one time. But the project was scraped. Hoping for one to be or look like the other is foolish. Because as it stands, it ain't gonna happen. They all should, if not be the same, KICK ASS!!! Kinda like DirecTV and all the rest. New devices included. Including free online media center software. DISH is proving to be severely archaic about this.

But what I have found presonally working for DISH to take care of this and seeing that has yet to be done . . . "THEY DON'T CARE".

I should say, "get over it", but that would be rude and insensitive. Ohhh, just like the lack of DISH addressing this.

As long as we pay the bill and there are no "Occupy River Front" (bar in the parking lot). "It ain't gonna happen."

That's real insight from well hidden obscured SW Dept of the company !

Not that far from our speculations; actually right on spot.

Any idea when the XiP series is supposed to be available? It seems like everyone has multi-room DVR functionalilty except Dish :mad:



Dish Network has had 2 room DVR ability for quite a while with their DuoDVRs.

Now if you have 211 with an EHD you can record programs and watch them in any room that has a 211,all you have to do is move the EHD to that room or make sure all your 211s have EHD.;)

I remember when I had D* we would have given our eyeteeth for a 3 hour guide like the 622/722/722k has,now since I have been gone from D* I don't know if D* ever added this feature to their receivers.:confused:
