It's been a while since I have tried to figure out what HD channels are available for 942 customers. Currently I have the HD pak, TNTHD, HDNET, HDNET MOVIE, ESPN HD, DISCOVERY HD. I also have HBOHD and SHOWHD. My dish is pointing at 119 and 110, I do have another dish I could link in and point at a third sat. What are my options to add more channels?

Thanks, Woodo

If you get LA locals from Dish you can also get the MPEG2 verison of KCBS but it is on the 148 bird and needs a 2nd Dish. I have a 942 and get the channels you noted plus KCBS HD.

If you add a dish at 61.5 or 129 you can get 10 of the Voom channels. The rest of the new HD channels are mpeg4 and you would need to upgrade to a 622 to get them (FoodHD, strazHD,etc)

I was led to believe that nobody could sign up for the 10 Voom channels any longer. Those that have them can keep them for $5, but if I were to drop them, I couldn't add them back. The 942 is capable of getting those channels if you add a ViP receiver to the account and sign up for DishHD, but I didn't think anybody could "add Voom" any longer. Did I misunderstand?

I have been toying with the idea of upgrading my 942 to the 622 so I
could receive the new HD channels. Are there any deals available for this change
and do you feel the 622 is worth upgrading to?
I would really appreciate your opinion in short here and save me reading thru
mega threads. I've been out the loop for a while now.
Thank you so much.
