Is Dish Network going to kill my DVRs?

Wow. OK, so the TiVo / EchoStar patent suit has come down to a judge ordering Dish Network to disable my DVR functionality? That HD-DVR I paid $600 for less than a year ago – they”re going to be forced by TiVo (through the court) to render it useless?

What the hell did I do to deserve this?

I imagine Dish will hustle up and strike a deal with TiVo that licenses their technology going forward and keeps existing DVRs alive, but I can tell you with complete certainty that if this case results in my $600 DVR going dark there will be two companies not involved in my next TV/DVR setup. And those would be TiVo and Dish.
