    Since this is intended for DirecTV folks only... I posted this here.

    The 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas (Jan 6-9, 2011) is only about 90 days away - hard to believe it's that close already!.

    The "free registration period" for admittance ended September 30th, but those wishing to register still can do so at a reduced $100 rate.

    While not open to the general public, a number of us here at DBSTalk have attended in the past. Last year - 8 of us met at various times, including a great "get-together dinner" at Maggiano's nearby.

    Soon, I'll be coordinating another such dinner-gathering.

    Please post in this thread if you intend to be at CES 2011, as well as which dates.

    To date, I have received a number of PMs regarding a number of DBSTalkers planning to be there.

    Some time in the weeks ahead, I will send a PM to all those who indicated they will be there to finalize plans for an onsite get-together.

    As we have done the past few years, those of us at the CES will bring our cameras and provide a report on the many things we'll likely see:

    - A new HD DirecTV Tivo DVR (finally)?
    - Non-(special) glasses 3D HDTV?
    - New DirecTV hardware or other announcements?
    - Much much more...

    Great!

    Once I get an idea of who is coming and when....I'll look to coordinate the "get-together" similar to last year - a good time for sure. Hope you can make it.

    I am registered, but I am not certain I will be going this year yet. I will likely be a last minute entry...

    Super! :):):)

    Sounds like we're going to have a good group there - and so far - Friday night for the get-together seems to work for everyone. :hurah:

    Once we let this thread run a bit longer - I'll send PM follow-up to all those coming regarding a date/place/time to meet.

    I will be there with a friend I am bringing. His name is HDTVFAN0001. I would like to eat at Magione's Italian Restaurant like we did last year.

    Great Food, Great Location and a Great Bar!!!

    I just Love their Spaghetti and Meatballs with Extra Meat Sauce and their Spinach Salad with Bacon and Feta Cheese is Awesome!!!

    Well, I have a final decision now. I won't be able to make it because I have a Pinewood Derby with my son that weekend. You all have a tremendous time without me. I know last year was a lot of fun, but I'm betting you this, DirecTV will have some kewl stuff to show off this year...watch and see.

    Yes, I believe DIRECTV will be there in all their Glory touting their 3-D Stuff along with their Whole Home DVR Service and their Faster CPU/DVRs, etc.

    Can't wait to use my New Spny Cybershot DSC-W370 with Panaramic Shots of 2011 CES Display!!! :)

    Wonder if I will take more pictures than HDTVFAN0001!!! He has a new toy too, a New Canon Powershot S95 so we will definitely be Active in taking lots and lots of pictures, that's for sure!!! :lol:

    I'm sure we'll do the onsite report with plenty of photos like last year.

    Meeting other DBSTalkers there is equally a good time.
