Hope you all are well and happy today. :)

I'm going to CES and will be trying to buttonhole Dish (and others) and then report back here what I find out. I'm more knowledgeable about Directv, but fundamentally agnostic, so I will need your help with knowing what the Dish Nework issues of the day are. As you are an erudite group in general, are there any questions you'd like me to ask (that won't get me thrown out!)

Thanks all,
Tom

I don't have any questions on the top of my mind, but I look forward to your reports.

Last year at CES they listed Tulsa as one of the 50 cities they would have HD locals to in 2006. My question, what is their new time frame for getting Tulsa ( and the rest of the 50 cities) in HD?

Thanks

Same for Providence, RI. Was on the list for 2006.

Also, many would like a real update on RSN in HD. I am waiting for NESN and the last time I emailed E* I was told RSN are currently scheduled for the 1st quarter in 2007.

Have fun at the show!

As this easily won the poll for the feature we would most like to see added for the 622 I think it's a question that has to be asked - when are they going to release it and how will it work (archieval only, play from ext, size limitation, etc)???

Have fun at the show, I have always wanted to go to CES!

can you ask about the following Feature Requests for 622:

1.) Indication on the Program guide for programs broadcast in HD
2.) File size for recorded programs on DVR

3.) DVR sharing (make the 622 files accessable to other receivers) (this is an option offered by Verizon FIOS tv)

Are we even sure Dish is going to be there????

I have checked several times and have not been able to find an exhibitor listing for either DishNetwork or Echostar. Their spot on the floor last year has been swallowed by LG while it appears tht DirecTV has increased their space size. On one hand I can understand their lack of being there but on the other hand can they really afford not to be?

I am leaving Sun afternoon to head out there for the show and will be there al week. Once I get there I will post my findings.

Native Pass through support. Is it still planned and if so, what receivers and is there a time-line for having this feature added.

They are still scheduled for Press Day, Sunday morning. And they are in the Central Hall, unless you saw something I didn't.

I stand corrected, they are scheduled for their press meeting Monday, morning at 10am.
Cheers,
Tom

Ditto, and will it be an option so that those who don't want would be able to turn it off? I want it but some people don't.

Thanks for compiling all these questions for those of us unable to go to CES!:)

Yes. Make them use the ethernet port for something really needed in multiple HDTV homes.

And ofcourse more HD programming - MTV HD for eg. Also any international HD channels ? And the perennial favorite - BBC.

"Please ask about plans of entering the Mexican market. When is it happening? A lot of rumors that the start is January 12th."

James, THANK YOU for the translation. I can NEVER understand what the hell this guy is saying. Guess I left my decoder ring at home.

I would ask if there are any plans to pick up The Anime Channel or the Funimation channel. I posted this in the D* forum but if dish picked up either of these on a 24-7 basis i would switch.

Thanks

Ditto the ditto on Native Passthru. Convince them that, by doing this, they will once again be in the lead for those of us who are only staying with them because of MPEG 4 transmissions.

Please, work with us oh great. lofty E*!
