Now that the Dishwire is a non-connection, what are you going to do with your 921. I'm taking a wait and see attitude for awhile longer.

That's not the point. A feature has advertised and some people based thier purchase on the promise of future availablity of that feature.

Not for me. I bought it to be able to record OTA HD and it does NOT do this on my channels. For me 3 out of 7 channels have no PVR features or record capability.

It's gone as soon as my locals are available on DirectTV and maybe sooner if I get the right offer.
