I currenly have the Skyangel lifetime subscription so I have no monthly bill with Dish. My current receiver is an 811 and it would be nice to have the programming on more than on TV. I am considering buying a 942 off Ebay and was wondering if anyone else has this scenereo. My questions are:
1. I do not need the PVR so is there anyway to have a 942 and not use the PVR and save the $5.99 per month?
2. With the 942, will I get hit with a non-hd fee? I heard that Dish will no longer sell HD programming with this receiver.
3. I am considering early in 07 to move to the Top 60 package since my cable deal is almost ending. I would go with the 622 but it appears that if I don't buy their HD package, I will get hit with a non-HD fee. I only have a 22" HD LCD and have no desire for the Dish HD programming outside of ESPN and I would choose to live with ESPN standard. I currenly get all my OTA in HD with great signal. That is enough for right now.
4. If I deactivate my 811 reciever from Dish, will it still work to receive over the air HD? I would still keep it connected to the SW64.
