    Just an update. Got my 942 from Dish to replace my buggy 921. Here's a quick comparison.

    OTA reception is much less prone to multipath.

    Remote is much more responsive.

    Overall speed is much better.

    Using HDMI out I don't have to set tv to inverted input (using DVI on 921 the tv needed to be set to inverted for proper color)

    Only problem I have is wcbs-h (digital WCBS OTA, NYC) does not show guide data. Had same issue on 921 before I swapped it so this must be a problem with Dish's guide data.

    942 only has 1 hour buffer to pause live tv vs 2 hours on 921.

    So far, the 942 seems better than the 921.

    Rocket - Kudos for getting them to upgrade you. I am jealous.
