Most likely Dish will not be changing out any receivers for 2 or more years. Also they will probably replace both DirecTV and Dish receivers with a new generation of yet-to-be-designed models. Until then both DirecTV and Dish customers can continue to use their current receivers. In any case nothing will happen for several months as the Federal Government decides if they want to block the Dish buyout of DirecTV on anti-trust grounds or not. I suspect that if the deal does get the go ahead, it probably won't happen until at least mid-2002. Therefore you DTC100 is still going to work for at least a couple of more years and perhaps 3 or 4.
