Last release date I recall seeing on the boards was 15 June 2002 for the new 721; however, there doesn't appear to be a peep on any website concerning its release. Dish Network doesn't even list it, and Dish Depot is still taking pre-orders for an item that their website says will ship today. What's going on? Did it get released, or was the release date pushed back? :shrug:

The 721 is due to start shipping to Dealers TODAY!

Dealers should have then in their hands tommorow.

I should have one in my hands on Wednesday or Thursday. I will have a full review of the 721 online by Friday. :)

Stay tuned to DBStalk.COM!

Just checked DBS Forums website....per Claude Grenier the units are now delayed until the 2nd week of July due to software issues. Can someone out there please verify if this is true and when exactly is the 721 going to be shipped. Dish Depot/Mark says the units are in the Echosphere warehouse and are ready to be shipped to Dish Depot. There is a scheduled retailer chat on Tuesday 6-18-02....

I am waiting for others to do initial beta testing for me. Why spend so much money to get burned and into the dp blues all over again?

I really want to upgrade but jen will kill me if I replace fairly stable dps with a whole new bug ridden problem.

I know what you mean. That's the chance we take when we buy on the "bleeding edge." Oh well, I cannot help it! I want mine now. hehehe

If what you say is complete, it would appear that an "out" exists. I just checked and there are "2nd weeks of July" in each of the next few years...

I don't have one on order and have never been a DP owner but from what I've read doesn't it seem strange that Dish may have actually held up shipment for a software problem?

Im waiting to hear now, the Retailer Chat (which is supposed to be about the 721) is on now.

My retailer friend who lets me watch the dealer chats is away this week on vacation. :(

If anyone has anything to share let us know! My credit card is getting itchy! :)

Like I'm going to cough up 600 bucks for something that most
likely will be defective for months, if not years to come?

Yeah, right. :rolleyes:

What kind of immature "I want it, and I want it NOW!" person
would do something stupid like that?

Ouch....I hope you were just joking. I am one of those. I love playing around with new technology. :)

Besides, if nobody bought the new technology early on, how would any of the bugs ever get worked out? Why would they even continue making it if no one bought it? I don't mind being a guinea pig as long as they support their product. FWIW
