211 question

01-30-2006, 12:40 AM
Is the new 211 HDTV reciver a dvr as well? I have a two tuner non hdtv dvr that I would really hate to lose

No, 211 is only HDTV receiver

611 is a DVR.

622 not 611. 622 replaces any previous Dish HD DVR. Why keep old technology when it will rob you of some mpeg4 channels, besides.

I'm not sure if this question was asked already, but how do you get 211 if you are already have 811? Is it free for current Dish customers?

Trade in for $49 including any dish changes? Or is it $98?

811 was free, now 211 is $49. That's not fair.

Was not free when I got mine last March. $50.

811 was free, now 211 is $49. That's not fair.That's right! I fully support corporate sponsored technology welfare programs. This is absurd, I should get everything for free. I have rights!

... oops, kneejerk reaction... couldn't help myself :rolleyes:

Hi there Delyan,

Well, perhaps your 811 trade in pain would be lessened if you heard what a complete dork I am, for buying a 921 for a full 699.00 just a few months ago....only to find it becoming obsolete, and offered this wonderful deal in April of giving up my own personal property (921) so I can get a 622 while paying a net cost of 99.00 - and I believe I get to pay a lease fee too! - I wish when I called Dish initially to purchse a 921 that they would have told me it was
1. junk (first one died after 32 days)
2. worthless in just a couple of months (if I want all HD)
And by the way, they did not offer me any lease then......

So glad I found this forum...I will never by suckered again by Dish...I think I will wait a bit on the 622 to see if there are any complaints about that unit.
