    For Dish equipment pricing, you can get a good start right on Amazon. The nearest equivalent to Orby's non-DVR STB would be the $65 Wally. But the Wally can be converted to a DVR by simply plugging in a USB hard drive and paying a one time $40 fee. Paired with an $85 Dish 1000.2 DPP or DPH dish, the Wally gets two sat tuners, and an optional USB module adds two OTA tuners. The $38 Flex Pack has 50+ channels, and the sat locals pack only adds $12/mo., something that Orby doesn't offer at all. There's no "scam" involved, just different packaging of different products.

    I'm glad to see they listened to the folks that asked for a DIY kit, but I suspect many will still find the extra $65 for someone else to do the work worth it. Also note that the kit does not supply the coax that the pro install includes, so add that to the DIY cost. Then again, if you want make sure the work is done to your standards... ;)
