I have a question.

When they originally said the 622s would be available on 2/1 and would be installed for the Olympics, were they talking about the Winter Olympics in Torino or the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing?

Where did you get that sound bite? I don't recall them promising 622's installed by the Olympics. The only mention of the Olympics was the HD channel for ALL HD receivers (which was mention as of Feb 1st but has obviously been pushed back a few days).

I think the whole point to this is ensuring the product is exactly the way you want it before shipping. I feel confident this is what is happening in respect to software/ And you know, say what you want, but personally, give me perfection before premature readiness.

Just got rescheduled. Went from 2/12 to 2/28. My other choice was 3/14 when I said I was busy on 2/28. I will reschedule the other stuff once I hear people really getting installs. Looks like the 622 is really vaporware and not shipping.

Not vaporware, its real, and I sincerely believe the wait will be worth the wait.
