I'm not worried about the dish aspect. I have three masts, two with dishes on them now, on the top of my chimneys. Eventually temp controlled alcoves for any dish(s) I'd need. I could also series DPP44 switches, and keep the dish count down, if that will work? Part of the questions I have. It's integrating it into my whole house system. Or is it going to be "snotty" and have to do its own thing and not play well with others (gear)?

I saw only one set of jacks per unit. So there'll be Joey's all over and can they coexist or mesh with existing RF from my modulators? OR put them all in the racks and pipe it out? Addressable remotes for that? ZigBee looks very interesting. See, questions and strange thoughts. Frankenstein didn't have instructions (per sé).

Some notes while looking at BobaBird's pictures at EKB:
- the letter X in new line's name of boxes XiP came from eXtention of DP/DPP technology, what technically means adding IP stack over MoCA 256QAM

Didn't even notice that when I got the shot :P, will have to ask more questions

- full name of the DVR is "Hopper 2000" (I guess it's because of 2000 GB drive size ?)

Could be a trendy number, or a retro nod to first Dish receiver. The idea now is that future models in the line will also be called Hopper, maybe Hopper 3000.

- would EHD running out of eSATA port on back, not USB as previous ViP models?

Scott's early report says we'll be able to use both, booth says eSATA won't be active at launch.

- purpose of second Ethernet post ?

Didn't get a good answer on that.

- where is the games ?
- no one word about AppStore and Apps development

Didn't ask, didn't look.

- no picture of USB Rose Sling Stick.

The what? I've only seen a still shot (I guess that would be the only kind ;) ) paired with the Sling Adapter used with the 722/722k.

2nd ethernet port could indicate that it's got a small switch built into it so as to allow passthrough for other devices (aHRM xbox360)

"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

I'm very skeptical about the 'switch' - a) nothing close to such component(s) on FCC pictures B) ...
Actually, I would bet for the XiP813 retail price - no such switch inside. :)

If you could - stop at Sling booth (I saw they have it) and beat them ;) - the sling_stick is a part of XiP813 possible setup.

The second ethernet port is there because the motherboard that they're using has it. :)

How many years did the Dish recievers have USB and ethernet ports before there was any real use to it?

Hopper stacking for additional Joey's?

Chased down the wild goose, turns out it's the familiar Sling Adapter already used by the 722/722k. Sling uses flowers as development code names.
