Just got this email...

The rumors are starting to circulate. I have been told the TU-9000's should ship soon. "Should be available any day!" (JVC Rep quoted 04/16/2003)


I have been kinda' looking for the 921 around June. I have, probably, already told you that. It may be true, it may not. Regardless, this is a good sign. Rumors flew before the 721 release and were almost right on target. I don't have confirmation on pricing for either but I'm comfortable with the $1,300.00 on the 921!


I am ready to start taking orders!
This comes from a firm that sells Dish equipment. I wrote back saying I'll send my money when they actually start shipping.


Comments, anyone?

With E* I'd keep my money in my pocket for quite some time, they always have lots of bugs to work out in the first 6 months or so with any of their PVRs.

See the 921 & 211 topics in the HDTV Recorders forum, the latest report of arrival is September.

The JVC 9000 and the Dish 921 are not the same receiver. They are both HD PVRs that work with Dish network but they are not the same unit. My recollection is that the JVC did not have an OTA tuner while the 921 did.

I received this email as well. I hope that Kipp is closer to the price of the 921 than J.Mike's email states.


Any truth to the rumor that the center slot in the 921 is for an optional DVD player?


I look forward to the 921, but am stopping short of adding my name and $ to a pre-order list. As a dish customer, I remain disappointed at the lack of emphasis on HD @ Dish. No mention of the 921, one of the most anticipated pieces of hardware in some time, at the last Chuck Chat. Humph.


Cheers,


Dave

J. Mike, great sig!
