On the DISH Network website they have information on the new HD receiver... the DISH Player-DVR 921. (PDF Brochure)
It's got a DVR (Tivo-like digital video recorder) built in. It's got two dish receivers in it. It does picture in picture. You can pause and rewind live TV. You can record two shows at once while watching a pre-recorded show. It can record high-definition television. Did you hear me? It can record high-definition television. 25 hours worth.
It costs $999.00.
Hell, I made $4000 in trade agreements for our wedding vendors. I can spend $1000 on myself, right? If that sounds like a weak rationalization, don't worry, I can come up with a dozen more weak rationalizations.
It will be mine. Oh yes... it will be mine.
