Just a reminder to everyone that tonight will be holding our first ever Charlie Chat... Chat!

Last month we held our first live chat for the Dish Network Tech Forum, which was a huge success! We had over 40 people join us in the chat as the chat happened!

You will be able to access the chat from our JAVA based chat room, or you can also join us by using your favorite IRC program such as MIRC, Or pIRCh.

If you will be using one of these programs you will need the following information

Servername irc.foreverchat.net
Channel #dbstalk

For those of you using our Java based chat you don't need this info, the only thing you will need to do is click on the link on our page which will be posted when the chat is about to start.

The Pre Event Chat will start at 8:30pm with the main chat starting at 9:00pm (All times Eastern)

We hope you will join us

Hey Scott, will us Web TVers be able to get in? I had difficulty accessing the chat the last time. Web TV doesn't work with Java. If not I will have to wait for the review.

Unfortunately Lew, our text based Chat that works with IRC crashes when we have more the 5 people in it. :( So this chat will not be available to those with WebTV's

I plan to log tonights chat for everyone who can join us in chat.

They could have summaried the entire 60 minutes show into a 10 minute show. They kept repeating the same thing all over again. This one was a real waste of time!!! The dbstalk chat was more enjoyable than the information Charlie provided. The 721 is a bomb filled with bugs. Charlie is so sure about it that he does not even talks about it.

I agree. Is anyone going to post a recap of the chat in the tradittional way? It was way too hard to try & read through all of the comments. I'm sure that if I were in the chat room at the time & watching the Chat on TV that it would make sense. Since I can't watch the Charlie Chats nor participate in the chat room, it would be a great service to have a revue of the chat to read too.:confused:

Charlie knows that it is way to f-uped to be released.
That's why he didn't talk about it on the Chat. It must have been a sneak question to get him to even talk about it.
Seriously, think about it...The 721 isn't even on his web page.
AND that is why only retailers are only going to distribute the 721.
When the bugs start biting...and you call E*: they will tell you to call 'so in so'...that's who you bought it from. :rolleyes:
This sucks...I really want one.
One that works...that is!
