During my change over from Dish 500 antenna to a 1000.2 setup. I was removing the 508 PVR from the cabinet, and moving it to the Den, which replaced the JVC 301. Replacing the 508 with the recently required ViP 211, there is one hell lot of difference in the weight on the two. The 508 PVR must weight twice as much more over the 211. Back in 2002 I bought the Dish 508 PVR and the JVC 301( both new) from a dealer in Springfield, Mo for a total $87.95. I paid $184.49 for the 211, which has a cheapo plastic front, plus some sort half metal/coconut fiber material. Charlie the snowboarder is making money like it was going out of style... Last time I checked, he was the 24th richest billionaire in world. Just think, 28 years ago he had a little trouble (money wise)getting from Tennessee to Colorado.
