A few interesting tidbits today.

First, it has been reported that the "Dishwire" connections on the Dish DVR-921 will never be activated. This has caused quite an uproar with 921 owners. See more HERE.

Word is that the Turner/Echostar dispute is running under a temporary extension that expires April 30th. Looks like negotiations are still ongoing so no channels will be shut off yet. See more HERE.

And lastly, a federal court jury in Los Angeles returned a verdict awarding DirecTV $51.5 million in damages assessed against Pegasus. The full story is HERE.
