It will be marketed as a WS Weather Forcaster...not sure on a name yet

If someone offers something called V-LINK...RUN!...and if they are selling something for VS boxes for $40...RUN!!

You want to listen to all these 3rd parties, so be it, get stung...your fault. If you buy something called V-link, blame yourself when it doesn't work.

The real units will retail in the $100-$110 price range. The reason for a slightly higher price is going to be due to quality, more available channels, sats, etc.

You should expect little to no issues with freezing, etc, on the actual WS Weather Forcaster as that has been worked out

Expext to see 5-10 PPV movies daily, as well as all the adult channels

What KK is saying is that the people who were going to revive the viewsats with a v-link solution, discovered that $50 charge was too little to activate all the VSs out there. So they changed it a bit and are now calling it WS Weather Forcaster. He is right that v-link will not work if there had been one, but I guess there has been a rift within the ranks and one group is going to come out with a v-link and the other with WS Weather Forcaster.
To program and reprogram and reinvent reception of "weather broadcasts" is a very smal job compared to writing of BINs. Therefore, I think there will be mini-wars of ECMs between the WS Weather Forcaster dealers and v-link dealers.

There has been a split and hence the delay. However, it would be good to have two groups servinc VS, do you agree, Nalin?

Absolutely. There are too many units out there and two services would be better then one.
