Default Re: upgrade from 96i/o to 192 i/o

So the options for me are
1. Wait until 96i/o is replaced with a newer interface
2. Hope that some one in digi finance wakes up to the fact that if you get all the 96i/o guys to upgrade then you can get more mix users to HD by doing a Cheaper 96i/o refurb upgrades (LIKE YOU USED TO DO) that would be an incentive for mix users if they can save a bit on the interface. Then you get more HD users who can eventually go to ACCEL. You see the problem is mix users can simply stay on mix for another 2 years and even more. What digi needs to do is to offer an even bigger incentive to move to HD.

Still it doesnt make any sense to me that HD is pretty much dead end until you get anoter snazzy card to come along yes i know you can buy accel cards but interfacewise its a no show i am pretty sure if you have an upgrade path you'll get many takers. The spin off is that you can also do another promo to get mix users otherwise that is a potential customer base you could lose and hey that is a real possiblity especially with the other alternatives out there a lot of mix user will bleed their system dry and then drop of the digi scale i know quite a few mix users who are refusing to upgrade because of the extra expense of the interface. I mean secondhand mix cards are now about 700.00 888 interface are now 400, a new HD1 core hmmmm 5000+ and the interface 1500+ 96i/o 2200+ for 192 all rough estimates of course. These guys flogging mix's all over the place are not upgrading are they, so digi is reducing their customer base by not offering these guys better incentives to stay.

BTW what is the recruitment number so I can apply to digi sales and show them how to get more users on HD
