I'm a DN customer for 1 yr. I want to upgrade to an HD DVR, but that is the 942, and DN is not letting me lease it yet.

What is the 211, and what does it do compared to the 942?

Thanks

The 211 is the new HD receiver with mpeg 4 technology. It sounds like you would not want the 211 because you want the new 622 which is the new mpeg 4 HD DVR. If you want to receive the new HD channels then get the 622 and if you order it on April 1st you can get the 622 and the dish 1000 satelite all for $99 after rebate if you don't want to wait it'll be $300. You need the dish 1000 also to get the new HD channels so I say wait til April 1st and you'll get it all for $99.

MISINFORMATION!! WARNING!!! WARNING!!!

so much for that.. .he never said he has a PVR...he was ready to lease a 942. If he does not have a PVR the 622 will cost him $299, in February or April..does not matter. The $200 rebate is only for present 921, 942, etc. owners or lessors, after April 1.
