Media Center DISH Network tuner is on hold indefinitely

Well this is the most depressing thing I’ve seen in a while, not that I was so excited about switching to Dish from cablecard, but just the visibility it would have brought to Media Center. Alas, twasn’t meant to be.


You read that right, there is no official announcement, but we’ve received a number of tipsters letting us know that Microsoft and DISH have pulled the plug on the DISH Network Tuner for Windows 7 Media Center. We could care less about one of our predictions being wrong, but we we are deflated about the fact that all the testers say they were shocked to get the news as we are because the beta seemed to have been going so well.
