    I Guess With The Archos Portables Coming Out That The Usb Port Will Finally Be Used

    Yes indeed it will be used. :)

    I have an unit coming to me from Dish and I can't wait to plug it in and see it work.

    And as they announced they are looking to do external storage via external USB 2 Hard drives.

    Finally some smart ideas coming out of Denver!

    Can't wait to hear what you have to say about the units, Scott.

    The external storage interests me! Any idea when we might see it?

    Sooner rather than later, Doug. It's just now starting to trickle into testing.

    Will the new dishplayer only work on the 942? Or will it work on any receiver that has a USB, like the 721 or 921?

    Thanks

    since the USB on the 921 is not USB 2 but the slower USB 1.1... I doubt it. Probably just the 625 and 942 and newer MPEG4 boxes.

    I have a feeling I will like it. I played with them at CES. I just hope I can put other content on the unit besides Dish Network stuff (ie MP3's and other videos)

    What about the 522? If it will work on the 625 then will it on the 522? I bet Dish Network will come out with an external hard drive and require theirs to be used in order for it to work to monopolize on it and make a profit.

    A external drive would be great for added storage.

    Wonder what the monthly FEE for this will be?


    $4.99 appears a nice number:(

    East...

    Will it work w/ the 522? Or is Dish going to make us upgrade to a 625 to be able to use their new toy?

    I am also wondering if it will work for the 522 since I have two of them. Oh well for the 721. That sucks.

    I don't see that it would be impossible for us to use it with the 721/921, but it will be a lot slower.......

    There probably arent enough 721 and 921s and both are discontinued to make it woth the $ for E to do it.

    522 probably

    721:(

    Does the 522 use USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 ?

    The 522 should have USB 2.0 ports.

    They probably cost another 3 cents per receiver. That could add up to many hundreds of dollars system-wide!
