    It could be added to your existing layout if you have two free output from DPP LNBF/switch for Solo Node.

    I'm not worried about the dish aspect. I have three masts, two with dishes on them now, on the top of my chimneys. Eventually temp controlled alcoves for any dish(s) I'd need. I could also series DPP44 switches, and keep the dish count down, if that will work? Part of the questions I have. It's integrating it into my whole house system. Or is it going to be "snotty" and have to do its own thing and not play well with others (gear)?

    I saw only one set of jacks per unit. So there'll be Joey's all over and can they coexist or mesh with existing RF from my modulators? OR put them all in the racks and pipe it out? Addressable remotes for that? ZigBee looks very interesting. See, questions and strange thoughts. Frankenstein didn't have instructions (per sé).

    Didn't even notice that when I got the shot :p, will have to ask more questions
    Could be a trendy number, or a retro nod to first Dish receiver. The idea now is that future models in the line will also be called Hopper, maybe Hopper 3000.
    Scott's early report says we'll be able to use both, booth says eSATA won't be active at launch.
    Didn't get a good answer on that.
    Didn't ask, didn't look.
    The what? I've only seen a still shot (I guess that would be the only kind ;) ) paired with the Sling Adapter used with the 722/722k.

    2nd ethernet port could indicate that it's got a small switch built into it so as to allow passthrough for other devices (aHRM xbox360)

    I'm very skeptical about the 'switch' - a) nothing close to such component(s) on FCC pictures b) ...
    Actually, I would bet for the XiP813 retail price - no such switch inside. :)

    If you could - stop at Sling booth (I saw they have it) and beat them ;) - the sling_stick is a part of XiP813 possible setup.

    The second ethernet port is there because the motherboard that they're using has it. :)

    How many years did the Dish recievers have USB and ethernet ports before there was any real use to it?

    Chased down the wild goose, turns out it's the familiar Sling Adapter already used by the 722/722k. Sling uses flowers as development code names.
