Joeys don't have component or S-video output. Is this because of the component and S-video output fiascos of previous receivers?
Didn't I read that EHDs must connect to the Hopper and not the Joey? Does that mean that lack of support of EHD for a Joey is because of a fiasco?
Component and S-video outputs are disappearing because the hardware manufacturers caved in to the content providers and eliminated the best analog outputs. While the Joey is strictly a client box, no hdd needed. Don't be mucking up the issue about the 922.
Lets look at the facts.
1) The 922 still doesn't have BB@Home (which Dish is using as an advertising point for new accounts).
2) The 922 is not available from Dish as either an upgrade to existing accounts or as an option for new accounts.
3) The Hopper, which is based on the 922, doesn't have Sling embedded like the 922.
While the 922 might not have been a fiasco, the signs point to it not being successful. The 922 supporters keep asking about proof that the 922 was a fiasco. Why don't you show us the proof that the 922 has a future?
