I just got a DISH 6000 to use as a second receiver. My other is the DISH 5000/Panny combo. The DISH 6000 has an event timer like the other models but this thing has a check box for an S-VHS or DVHS recorder in the menu. It showed up right after I installed the receiver when it did an immediate software download. There was a one sheet addendum in the manual about this. I was kinda surprised at this since I bought this knowing that I could not record any HDTV stuff.
Is there any scuttle as to whether there is some DVHS recorder in the works for using this capability?
Always looking to hedge my bets if my HD1000 goes poof.
