Actually if I remember correctly they said the search feature would be in by the Superbowl. On the last Charlie Chat however Charlie was putting down his engeneers and software people saying that they never hit their goal on time.

Only time will tell.

Hi John,

Welcome to DBSTalk.Com!...also, welcome to DBS. If you have any questions and need help with your system, don't hesitate to ask.

As far as the 501, the announcement was made at the CES last January 8th that the 501 would be released in February. It actually didn't get released until April 2001.
