No one at echosphere seems to know so I figured I'd turn here to ask my question. Demand is extremely high for the product and we have several back orders could desperatly use some verified info as to when and how many are comming.

My guess is as soon as the next software version is released, many more are coming.

That is exactly what one of my sources said. They want to get the OTA channels bug fixed before they release them. And "ayalbaram" is correct, the demand for the 921 is extremely high.

So how do we get these guys to release 921's to the hundreds (thousands, millions?) of us that will never see HDTV OTA? You know, the people that gave satellite TV it's life in the first place - the old BUD's? :lol:

Who can we call to say: "here's my money - you know, the reason you exist" :hurah: ?

I'm waiting for the 921 not so much for the HDTV (which I DO want) but as for a 2-tuner 250GB box. After all, Dish doesn't seem to have much HDTV content (aside: is that changing anytime soon?).

99,900 pennies to be exact. If you saved your nickels, dimes, quarters and dollars, you might be able to get it before it becomes obsolite!

Well I heard from my Dealer today that No.Cal distributer got 7 units. WOW. :eek2: Of course he didn't get one. If I miss the Super Bowl thats it. I'm going to be a real baby and wait to see what Tivo has. (I know, more for the rest of the waiting list) I want a new toy now! :hurah: I want to be a new dish subscriber but it's starting to look doubtful :nono:

Apparently as units come out, the quality control people stop them from being distributed due to the software bugs. Here's an idea: HIRE SOME DECENT PROGRAMMERS CHARLIE!!!!!! THIS SUX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :mad:
