I see it as you can't make it opposite.
Your opinion based on pretty much extensive wording: no technical background, no internal functionality knowledge ...


If you can't post any proof, then I'll consider this a done discussion. No sense in beating the dead horse and arguing over your opinion.

You have stated an opinion and attempted to assert it as fact with zero factual evidence to back up claims of a fiasco.

Yep. When the discussion gets to the "my invisible resume is stronger than yours" argument it is no longer a discussion of facts or opinion.

I think it was initial mistake to stir separate discussion of the aspect.
OK, it was my opinion (what else you want to see on the site ?), it was mention in between lines somewhere ...

Sorry, but you're hopping on the wrong train.

I never said the 922 was a successful endeavor. It had enough problems and lack of support from Dish that probably has it on its last legs.

But... P Smith has asserted that embedded Sling on the 922 was a fiasco. I've asked him to prove his assertion. He fails to do that.

I don't need to prove the 922 has a future, as you ask, because I never said it did. I think it is clear the Hopper/Joey is intended to replace all of Dish receivers going forward until they come up with something better perhaps in a few years... so they may start backing away from things like the 922.

But that doesn't make the 922 or embedded Sling a fiasco. I've seen no proof of that.



No support from DISH?.I must have imagined my guide logos being updated 3 times since I bought my 922/wMT2,also the latest rumor from the other place is BBMP is coming to the 922 in April,2012.I will let you know if it does.;):D

Yes embedded sling is a "fiasco"!,or the suits at DISH wanted to increase profits per receiver and less costs?.You decide?;)

Something isn't a "fiasco" just because you decide to stop doing it. All the 922 problems that could be considered fiasco-like, I wouldn't say embedded Sling is one of them and haven't seen any proof to support that.

I believe they are still working on updates to the 922, and hope for Blockbuster support... but am pretty sure that all the original stuff planned for the 922 has been tabled. All the Web-enabled stuff like being able to search the Internet and IMDB for info on movies and such... I'm pretty sure that is never going to happen now.

I'll grant you that some of how Dish has treated the 922 (especially marketing or lack thereof) might could be considered a fiasco. Certainly much moreso than embedded Sling.

Yes I agree,all I know if it is a fiasco(how can it be because it works good) I sure have enjoyed using it so far,everything has worked good on my 922/wMT2.:D

Everyone should have realized no Web-enabled stuff when DISH decided to not bring out the keyboard.:confused:;)

But there is still internet apps.:)

Yep... and do you remember the original CES show talk was also about supporting a wireless monitor in another room. That never happened either.

Think that idea went the way of the HIC on the Hopper&Joey?.;)
