    Dish scrapped the idea being that you can buy DVD players very cheap now and I guess it was not cost effective for them to do it.

    Yeah we played with a prototype at work and it wasn't very full featured. It was for the best. Besides, it probably wasn't the best idea to combine a solid-state device like a satellite IRD with a mechanical device like a DVD player. Better to have these things as seperate units.
