I certainly hope he mentions something regarding the dishplayer.

I hope we here more on the 721.

Be ready for 30 minutes of Merger information complete with e-mail adresses, web sites and Congressmen's names.

At least one mention of YES (still can't get solid info on this other than they're still talking).

CC Autopay! :)

Calls about PBS National and why you can't get it any more in areas with local channel availability.

See ya
Tony

How about a mention of this "exciting" new OpenTv channel that will allow us to (presumably) do many of the account management functions which can be done at dishnetwork.com but do them on the receiver?

I bet that one of the primary functions is (of course) a large button (some will say it's an AD) to sign up for CREDIT CARD AUTOPAY right from the remote control! :p

It'd be nice, though, if they could actually offer locals info and signup thru this app. Seems like it might be something that would reduce CSR calls for those that don't have a computer.

Also some info on the roll out of the Customer Support App. Will it essentially be in the same order they rolled out DISH Home? In that case, I'll probably get it fairly quickly once they start sending it. I own an early 4900 (actually IS a 4900 though, always has been. It didn't become one via software.).

I wouldn't expect any news on the Dishplayer. On the last retailer chat Charlie mentioned the problems he is having with Micosoft. Seems they have lost interest in the Dishplayer.

They will probably have a big big announce a multi-year carriage contract with ABC, thus ensuring continued carriage of ABC's channels and the return of ESPN Classic. Of course, we would know for about a week already.

Also, a YES update....

What is up with Credit Card Autopay? It seems like E* is hell-bent on promoting this. They force you to enroll in it if you want to participate in any of their deals/discounts. It's mentioned every 5 seconds on the Info channels or Charlie Chats. Is CCAP something that D* doesn't have and E* is trying to boast about it in order to compete?

I'm sure you could tell who that unregistered guy was. :) I REALLY hope Charlie adds at least one high-quality basic channel soon. There are MANY that could please many customers, and a couple that need to be added BACK.

I would like to see the local channels renumbered to their actual numbers. I was at a friend's who has Directtv and it sure made it easy to use the local channels when DirectTv has them listed under their normal numbers. (Local Channel numbers were < 100)

Yes I know this isn't a very important change just a nicety :)

Actually it was mentioned on the last Charlie Chat they are currently working on software which will remap your local channels to their proper local channel numbers.

Sounds like a cool idea, I just hope that feature can be turned off on my Dish 6000 because my local HD stations map themselves to stations as well.

In reverse, I was at my in-laws who have E* and it drove me crazy the our local channel 4 was actually channel 719. On D*, channel 4 is channel 4.

At least they are there, just some extra numbers to try to remember.

AutoPay also generates a lot of money to E*.
Anyone ever cancels, switches to D, etc. there are absolutely no refunds of money credits due.

Actually, I thought what happened was that E* would keep that money in your account with them, should you ever return. I agree though, that it is shady that they won't refund it by sending someone a check or similar type idea.

I wonder how much interest they collect simply from these customers' funds that are just sitting in an E* interest-bearing account?
