If DISH changed their HDTV format now, it would cause problems for all DISH 5000 and 6000 owners. Why would they alienate those customers, especially given that the 6000 is a fairly recent and current product?
They wouldn't. DISH really doesn't care if you record HDTV. They just want to appease the content providers.
