Well fortunately it looks like we're lucky and not getting OpenTV on the 921. They need to get them working 100% before they add crap like OpenTV.

On the August 2005 tech forum tonight, Renee Darby said that the 921 would get OpenTV support by the end of the year. Its in beta now I think she said.

I'm using a 942 now and have seen this "OpenTV". My impression--it is pure crap.

You can run OpenTV by pressing the Dish Home button, but there are other things that make it pop up. For example, if you click on the program of an unsubscribed channel, a "Customer Service" application pops up asking you if you want to subscribe to that channel. The problem is that it takes over a minute for the program to load and exiting the application takes several additional clicks and about two more minutes. So in other words, if you click on the wrong button, it takes over three minutes to recover and begin watching TV again. That's hardly what I would call "customer service".

I have yet to find even one useful application under Dish Home.

New answer from Tech Forum last night!

Q: When will the 921 support the Mosaic feature (ie Open TV)

Dish Answer: Spend $99 on upgrading to the 622 in April.
