MSRP Will Be $999 & Available starting March

Found a thread over at avs stating the MSRP is $999.
Check it out: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/show...threadid=349309

So much for our wishful thinking...

If this turns out to be true, I suspect Dish Network phones would be ringing off the hook for $600 deal. As buggy as it might come out to be, it still would be $400 cheaper.

What's the MSRP on the current Dtivo's? $399?

how much do they sell for? $99?

MSRP tells you nothing about what the price will be except the fact that it won't be more than $999

For those of you who remembered the whole HDVR2 pre-order fiasco:

Anyone have a scanned priced adjusted receipt for the new Hughes HD-DVR250 yet from Circuit City showing it at 50% off MSRP???

And how long have they been available?

When Directivos first came out, they sold for MSRP and at some places, even higher.

Uhhhh, MSRP on the 921 is also $999. The $600 is the *upgrade* price from the 821 offered in the $999 "total" HDTV package they are selling.

Technically it would be two thirds of the tuners. The 921 has two satellite tuners and one OTA tuner.

It still wouldn't be worth it after the first time the wife beats the crap out of my when the 921 reboots while recording one of her shows.

I am currently a Dish Network sub and was considering a 921. I however have heard of all the bugs (Plus only one OTA tuner) and now am VERY interested in switching when the HD Tivo is released. I would think some retailers would have a package deal for 3 rooms (3 LNB dish) with one being the HD Tivo and the others being regular receivers. Just taking a guess what would you guys think a package like be for a new customer of DTV? I would guess $699 with a 1 year commitment but I could be way off. As soon as I see a package like this available I am ordering!

Technically, you're both right. The HDTiVo will have 1/3 more tuners than the 921. The 921 will also have 3/4 as many tuners as the HDTiVo. The fraction depends on which way you make the comparison.

Yes, you're right, but look at how HE made the comparison.

If history was to repeat itself; none of the major B&M retailers had the HDVR2 packaged up and discounted for new customers like that for many months after the HDVR2 first came out so I would expect the dame with the HD DTivo. Then again theres the online sites like expersat and others who had the DTivo and regular receiver package out right away...

With all the loyal Tivo users out there and the good old 'high demand and low supply' after inital release will cause the new HD DTivo to be sold out at the B&M stores for a while.

How slow is the supply normally when DTV/Tivo release a new product? If it's like DISH it could be months.

Use the Dish 921 has one less OTA tuner but it does have One Firewire out put jack that Dish has confirmed will be turned on by April.

The HDTivo does not have the Firewire. It is also missing the Coax Out and one Componet video Input jack.

The 921 also can not currently do OTA with Guide data. It is missing. The HDTIVO can do this, it was shown in the CES demo.

THe 921 will not have Guide data for OTA till April.

Bottom line the 921 is still beta. Only about 20 People have one and you CANT get one new in a box right now (I have tried several times in the last few days).

I am now going to buy the HDTIVO 3 room package as a new customer. Cant wait.

This would almost be welcome news.

At $700 I still couldn't afford it but could really stretch and make it happen. But it would hurt.

At a grand I'm not going to even think about it.

I'm buying at least two, $1000 is a little painful but for the functionality, oh baby. Hell, I can't live without Tivo and I'm sick and tired of working my HD recordings thru other means. However, I hope DirecTV has some kind of promotion.

Yea, I was almost right. And my mom's a math teacher too. I guess that adage about preachers' kids is kind of the same for math teachers' kids.
