HD PVR's don't even surprise me anymore. It's almost guaranteed that they'll come out and come out soon. Have any of you looked in the paper recently? 60GB Hard drives sell for $150. PVR's have got to be the most cost efficient way to record HD out there. I mean my Dish Player Dish Network system cost $200 a year and ahalf ago and it only has a 6GB hard drive. With the way hard drive prices are crashing, recording HD is very very economically viable on a PVR.
I've read several press releases about the new DishPVR, at least once made a vague reference to being HDTV unreadable, but I got to thinking, did they really mean the HD was unreadable? What's the upgrade path on this thing? Echostars web site has very little about the new PVR. No manuals, rear panel photo's, etc.
The HDTV PVR will the 921 model. They are also releasing a model 721 PVRreceiver that is not HD capable. You can get get a lot of information (as much as is currently available) by folloing this link to a very long thread on DBSForums. The 921 is going to be an awesome unit. http://www.dbsforums.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/003513.html
