Flash to today, I want to get Dish and dont know what to do. Does anyone know if I can still use this 942 or is it too old now. Also, would or should I have to pay for it or is it considered a receiver that I bought outside of Dishnet. Then is it worth paying for is my next question or just purchase a newer unit that does the same DVR functioning.

This is entirely between you and Dish Network. The 942 in your posession isn't activated and it isn't yours, so I wouldn't worry about it. I'd start all over with bargaining for a leased ViP622.
About a year ago if not longer, I set up to have Dish installed with a 942 receiver. I canceled the order, but Dish had sent me the 942 and charged my credit card.
They may be hesitant to offer you a "never before subscriber" deal, and that's their right. Spin the wheel and see what comes up.

I have been out of work for 8 months and want to keep HD but don't have the money to get a $200 ViP622. Is there a way to work out a cheaper deal on the leasing of the ViP622?
If you are out of work then I would think that a HD DVR would be a lower priority
to your necessities.
