    New HD tip offs?

    If thoses are actually the upcoming HD channels, I'm in no hurry at all. I don't watch any of them and they just look like "cheap stuff", maybe with the exception of ESPNU. I couldn't care less if that's true. I want AMC, Travel and all the premiums in HD.

    More National HD Channels… ?

    I bet the "cheap" channels will come first, like QVC and others that probably will pay Directv or be at least free. What I want is "quality" instead of "quantity" : Travel,AMC,all the HBOs,Encore,IFC,Sundance. Based on the last HD channels added, I'm not very optimistic . Directv's priority is...

    Which channels you like to see added on DirecTV one day?

    Why were those the only channels selected for the poll ? Some sort of Directv test to see what do we think about the channels that have already been selected ? Those channels are pretty bad and with low public interest, maybe with the exception of ESPNU. Where is Travel HD ? AMC HD,IFC...

    Can I use Roku to playback a HD MPEG2 video stored on my PC ? Thanks.

    When are the new HD channels launching?

    I hope they don't add any channel now. Picture quality is clearly getting worse recently. The new bird will allow many new channels without sacrificing quality. 2nd quarter 2010 is when I expect new channels.

    How is the HD Directv image quality in US?

    I don't think so. If they are starving for transponder space (just speculation here) they will probably squeeze more channels than we do in US. When I was living in Europe I always thought the picture quality was much better there than here, specially in SD. The reason is clear: They don't have...

    How is the HD Directv image quality in US?

    I will try to answer the original question from our Brazilian fellow member: The quality of the HD is all about how compressed is the signal and what codec is used. Directv was using MPEG2 few years ago and over compressing the signal. Quality was not even close to Bluray. We now use MPEG4...

    Recording Directv to a pc

    Copy Protection For legal reasons, capture devices from Blackmagic Design are designed not to capture, convert or transmit video or audio from copy-protected sources, e.g. video devices using HDCP. Sounds useless to me.

    My H23-600 doesn't do HD MRV well

    I have a powerline 200 Mbps and it works fine for HD. Real throughput is about 28 Mbps but it's very stable and more than enough for HD streaming. My wireless N goes up to 162 Mbps but someimes drops to 13 Mbps and causes some stuttering. I live in a condo with loads of wireless networks...

    Hr-22 and Windows Media Center

    I can't see any reason whatsoever why the OP doesn't want to use Directv2pc. It works pretty well and is very user friendly. If he can use Windows Media Player, why not use Directv2pc ?
