TalkingRat, I don't think MicroProse is a garage-sized operation as it is being run by people who are well known with Atari unlike the MaxMedia people who I never heard of.
I don't think there are any companies that are not using a overseas manufacturer.
Who's to say that the delay is not caused by their overseas manufacturer who may even be LG
I am not 100% sure but do know that LG is involved with the MicroProse box.
Where this .edu email came from.

If you read their messages they sometimes give out wrong information like wrong urls.
They do however try to be helpful but are sometimes off on their information.
Recently they gave the admin url (luckily it needed a username and password) for their site instead of a DTVPal link
I told gH about their error and they had it fixed.
That email does sound suspicious and I will inquire about it and see if it was a mistake.About the car adapter for the DTVPal.
I had contacted Dish Network several times about that and was never given an answer.
I therefor contacted 3rd party companies that do make car adapters and also was never given an answer.
The only thing with the DTVPal is you better bring the remote and have a good set of batteries in them.
Also light might also cause a problem with the remote is indicated by another AVS Forum member so it is not 100% travel friendly.Early advantage MicroProse had may be lost
Dish Network still needs to correct their firmware first or stations need to all send the right time. There are a lot of people who were turned away from the DTVPal because of it's problems. Because of people being turned away from the DTVPal they may actually get better timing it all depends on what Dish Network does.
Dish Network also selling at the $39.99 price will also probably hurt every company if they can distribute with a good supply chain.
Who knows with Dish Network as they look like they lie a lot.
I don't trust them anymore after what they have done.
