    The DBSTalk.com contest instructions and rules:

    1. How to enter the contest: This is the fun part and very simple. Post a message in this thread about what you want for Christmas. Something like "Dear Santa: All I want for Christmas is (blank) because (blank)". Every user who makes a reasonable entry in the thread will automatically be entered in the contest (reasonable means something that is with the spirit of the contest. We will not accept entries such as "I want cheese for Christmas because I like food"). To make it easier for us, please preface your entry with "CONTEST ENTRY". This will keep the contest entries separate from the regular chatter. The winner will be chosen by random drawing.

    To make this even more interesting, we will not announce when the drawing will take place. We can tell you it will be some time in December. You must be present and logged in to win the contest. We plan to drop hints when the drawing will take place so if you visit often, you will have a good chance of winning.


    In order for prizes to be awarded, you must have a valid e-mail address listed under your registered user account. Multiple entries are not allowed and will be null and void if received.

    2. All DBSTalk.com contest participants are required to be registered members of DBSTalk.com to enter the contest. While participants from around the world are allowed to play, prizes will be only awarded to residents of the United States.

    4. All rules concerning game play are subject to modification. If modification of the rules becomes necessary, the rule changes will be posted at DBSTalk.com.

    5. All decisions made by the contest coordinator are final.

    6. Winners of any DBSTalk.com contests are eligible to win only one time in every 12 month period. Second place finisher may continue to enter.

    Second Place Prize will be a DVD of the participant’s choice shipped from a vendor of DBSTalk.com’s choice (valued up to $25).

    Note: Santa might bring a few additional prizes. ;)

    8. Odds of winning depend on the number of participants in the Contest. DBSTalk.com and Dish Depot will pay any shipping charges for prizes. There will be no substitution of prizes. No purchase is necessary to participate or win.

    9. DBSTalk.com and Dish Depot staff members, employees and their immediate families and household members, while eligible to participate, are not eligible to win prizes.

    Dear Santa,

    All I want for XMas is a Denon AVR-5805. I would become the envy of friend and foe alike, for I would have the power to switch DVI and HDMI, I could power 4 rooms of speakers, and I would only have one connection to my TV. Oh Santa one final thing, grant my wife the patience and understanding that comes from having a missing husband enthralled with a new uber techie toy.

    Dear Santa: All I want for Christmas is a sleeve of 100 blank DVD-R's because I went with the DVD burner instead of the larger TiVo hard drive.

    Dear Santa: All I want for Christmas is my basement finished because we are running out of room. Of course the basement would also need a completely stocked theater room.

    Dear Santa,
    All I want for Christmas is a 50+" Plasma HDTV so I can get rid of that bulky aging Rear Projection TV - I promise I will watch all Christmas shows.

    Dear Santa,

    For Christmas I would like to be able to sit down and talk to my Grandmother. That's all I have wanted since I was twelve when she passed on.

    When it comes to technology, I would like to have a dish large enough to get DirecTV here in Alaska so I could have the NFL Sunday Ticket, and someone to install this dish for me.

    I would also like a new set of golf clubs. Along with that, I would like Alaska to have a longer summer, so I could enjoy a longer golfing season.

    Thanks Santa!

    Dear Santa,
    All I want for Christmas is a DVD Recorder so I can finally erase my kids' 20 episodes of Rescue Heroes that have been taking up space on my DVR for the last year.

    Dear Santa,
    What I want for Christmas is a new job. It's about time that I find a job that pays well, don't you think? Or at the very least, one that pays decent, but it's a job that I actually LIKE? Think it over. Thanks. :)

    Dear Santa,

    All I want for Christmas is for all of my family to be together. Our oldest daughter has moved to San Antonio to go to school. She just started a new part time job to help pay for things and she won't be able to get off during the Holidays. This will be the first time we won't be with her at Christmas. Thank God for all our health, Broadband and iSight.

    Dear Santa - all I want is the TIVO being given away - it would make a great addition to my DTV system for the TV downstairs!

    Dear Santa,

    I would like the Classic Star Trek Box set for Christmas. I'm an original Trek fan, and still think the first show was the best show. My mom got me hooked on Star Trek. This is my second Chistmas without her. I'd like to sit and watch and think of her.

    Hope this letter finds you and Mrs. Claus well.

    That must be quite difficult for all involved, Mark. I hope her mom recovers well, and you have her home soon.

    Dear Santa,

    All I want for Christmas is a job I don't dread going to every day because life is too short to spend 1/3 of it doing something you don't like.

    And in the grander scheme of things, I want good health, peace and happiness for all my family and friends.

    Dear Santa: All I want for Christmas is for people to stop being mean to each other because it is just not right.

    It may be an unobtainable dream, but this is a letter to Santa, after all.
