Bad news if you want a Vip 622
Posted 27 January 2006 - 03:48 PM
We currently ran into some technical problems with our 622's and will be very limited this month for our customers. That promotion may be pushed into next month.

What are technical problems..
Do you mean distribution problems or
problems with the receivers?

until they get the receivers back in stock
I also wonder for how long will this promotion be available

It also happens to be next week.
February 1st is "next month".

The information that has been assembled indicates that the VIP622 is substantially a 942 with an Ethernet port and an MPEG4 capable decoder. This is not a significant change in hardware nor software; especially if the Ethernet isn't yet enabled.
I just noticed a website that states they have the 622's in stock and available now. Have not spoken to anyone there but sent an email to them. As a 921 owner I want some assurance they will "not" be another 921. I'd rather wait and have it work than go through the 921 deal again!

I suppose that the best advice would be to wait to find out if there are horror stories or love stories from those who just can't wait to get a ViP-622 in their homes. That doesn't mean that next Tuesday I won't be calling E* to get one.

Rewind the Charlie Chat or read the summary posted in the General E* forum and you will find out that Charlie CLEARLY told people to WAIT until April 1st if they wanted the rebate.
I called E* to see if I could get on a list for the 622 and they said they'd put me on an email list for notification. They also told me that the $200 rebate for 921 owners would only exist after April 1. If I got it in February then I would never get a rebate. As I understood the CharlieChat, we could get the 622 in February, but have to wait until April to receive the rebate. The guy at E* said, no I would only get the rebate if I got the 622 after April 1. Is this an April Fools joke, or did I get it wrong from the CharlieChat? Don't you get the rebate regardless, and it's just a question of when they're set up to send the the rebates out?
They even had a slide entitled "good things come to those who wait" that said WAIT!
DO NOT expect a rebate on deals after April 1st to apply to deals made before April 1st.

Charlie: "If I'm going to call up in March, I'm going to pay $299. If I wait until April I get it for free and I pay $99 for the install."
Jim: "You save $200 - the total is $99."
WAIT UNTIL APRIL!

DishNetwork has discovered some Vip622's (several thousand of them) had a defective chip and had to be recalled.
Availability is expected around the end of February

Me thinks that someone is ticked at Dish Network and is starting rumors (if you're hearing this from other sources).
