    My 921 will be replaced with a ViP622 today under the VOOM Dish'n It Up deal. I figure that getting $99 out of it on trade is better than keeping it or returning it for $10. It will cost me $1 more per month in fees, but I'll be saving $5 on programming for 10 months with the transition to DishHD.

    I encourage all 921 owners who currently subscribe to the $5 VOOM Pak to strongly consider this latest offer. Eventually, I'll probably Dish'n It Up my 508 for another ViP622 and go for the AEP to lop off $11.96 in VOD fees.

    I have two 921 receivers and I'm getting the same deal. I'm getting two owned 622 for both of my 921 receivers. I can still quit DISH if I want to, but probably won't unless my FSNBA HD doesn't come on soon.

    You better get the "owned" part in writing.
    The VOOM upgrade earns you an 18 month programming commitment, so you can't just walk away.

    #10 is starting to act up with some of the same bugs that #8 had. I had one total freeze-up a few days after it was put in service. Add this to the previously reported aspect ratio issue that happened on the day of installation.

    I've come to the conclusion that the problem is L332 and not the hardware. L278 was near-perfect. Why can't they just go back to that version?

    Plus the $5.99/month DVR fee that we aren't paying with 921. You do not need to pay the $20 HDpack if you just want the HD channels that you currently have. But, if you subscribe to the HDPack, you can not go back to the 921 HD lineup.

    I have also given up. The installation of the 622 arrives tomorrow. I am going to keep the 921, hopefully they will fix the software, then I will use it to replace my SD DVR that I use as a second system. Haven't subscribed the HDpack, will check it out to see if the channels are worth while.
