    Multi-Room Advice, please?

    Hey - a quick update / follow-up question. I found the "CHANNEL PLUS 5525 Deluxe Modulator Series with Infrared Emitter Ports (Dual-Source)" and it looks to be the same as the Sony MRD-D1, only with digital tuning (whoopee!). Does anyone have experience with the 5525 and can recommend...

    XM411 does a pretty good job at displaying the XM schedule, but a single site to show XM and DirecTV would be awesome -- including the HD tag. Maybe SatelliteGuys is the place? For the record, the XM411 schedule is available here: http://www.xm411.com/phpbb/xm_schedule.php

    Special-X (848), or 154 via XM Radio Online - is playing all Halloween stuff already. Currently listening to Boris Karloff - The Vampire Sleeps. Fun stuff, and might be just what you are looking for while you hand out candy. I bet between Special-X and XM Kids you'll be all set. For...

    I assume by the "while we pass out candy" comment, that you're talking about Halloween music, not Christmas. As I'm sure you're aware, DirecTV switched over to XM music programming a while back (which, in my opinion, is AWESOME!). I'm a big XM fan. While I do not believe XM will dedicate...

    Multi-Room Advice, please?

    Hello, oh wise gurus of satellite television... I have had DirecTV for about 10 years, using a Sony MRD-D1 to distribute the signal multi-room (to 5 rooms). The signal has changed over the years, from the original SAT-A3 (?) to a current DirecTIVO, but the MRD-D1 has been constant, and...
