I spent 2 weeks talking to multiple account specialists in customer retention, and sent a couple emails to the ceo email that people say gets them good results, and I got nothing out of them for a new DISH HD DVR, not even a $50 account credit. So i finally had to make good on my threat and switch to cable.
I think Dish is trying not to sell the 942 because in a couple months they are going to have to upgrade them to Mpeg4, they would rather I had waited a couple months and they would have given me what they call a "great promotional deal" on their next HD DVR that is Mpeg4 compatable.
/Back on topic.
Do theese Yammis have discrete ir codes for on/off, input, and surround modes? this is really important to me to try and keep things as easy as possible for the wife and kids.
