    XBOX 360 Elite Reviews

    Thanks Scott I would say "most" of the reviews I have read say little to no difference, but not "all" - there have been a view comments about improved PQ, looking forward to some reviews from the trusted members of this forum. Thanks, Scott

    XBOX 360 Elite Reviews

    Hoping to see some reviews of the XBOX 360 Elite from those who purchased it mainly to experience full 1080p over HDMI. Is there a big performance increase over the standard XBOX 360 when going from 1080i over component to 1080p over HDMI? Thanks!

    HR20 operational question

    My locals in Kansas City in HD are at times absolutely unwatchable. Reminds me of early days of streaming video over the web.

    Question for current HR20 owners about PQ

    For me, picture quality on my H20 local channels in HD is at time unwatchable - looks a lot like video on an average Internet connection on a PC. It's up and down, but has me very nervous about MPEG4 taking over all DTV broadcasts.

    Hr10 - Hr20

    I had them offer it to me for free (long time customer, never been told no by customer retention - except if I ask to have something simply shipped to me instead of installed by a tech). But the earliest install date in their system was 7 weeks away. The local office was supposed to call me to...

    Does anybody's R15 understand FIRST RUN vs Repeats?

    I have set several Series Links on my R15 and everytime I select FIRST RUN, and everytime it records every episode - even ones with REPEAT very clear in the description. I check the prioritizer and it says "all episodes will be recorded" but back in the Series Link set up it clearly shows...

    R15 Issues

    The R15 is crap. It's horribly slow and doesn't know the difference between First Run and Repeat. I set a series link to record only first run yet in the prioritizer it indicates all will record - and in it's defense it does! It's just not supposed to!

    getting H10-250 tomorrow

    My installer a few weeks ago had on his work order to install the 3 LNB dish even though about 2 months prior I had the 5 LNB already installed. Obviously, I did not have him install it. And I chose not to take it even though he offerred to leave it as it was technically mine.

    Customer Retention?

    Just tell them you'd really like to upgrade to HD but you feel like you've already spent so much money on equipment with them and your local cable company is offering a great deal on HD (if possible - have a specific deal they're offering - D* might ask) and want to know what can they offer you?

    Customer Retention?

    I've done very well without ever having to threaten to leave, simply politely express some concerns or disspleasure with whatever it is I'm trying to get. HD Dish/Rec, SuperFan, etc..... Catch more flies with honey than vinegar they say.... Good Luck

    HR10-250 and Off-Air Antenna

    Is it just my HR10-250 is does the off-air antenna input just suck? Just got the new HR10-250 and a new Mitsubishi WD-57731 I'll skip the details of trying this antenna, that antenna, tweaking these settings and location because it doesn't really apply to the bottom line of my...

    KC Local HD Audio/video problems

    I have very much the same issue with my HD locals in KC, my signal strengths are all pretty low, I'm hoping when I finally call DTV they'll work to get my signal strengths improved rather than replacing hardware.

    Terrible HD Picture Locally

    Just got the new 5 LNB dish installed to get local HD channels. My local HD channels look real bad, very pixelated - looks like trying to watch video on PC via dial up connection at times. My phone gets better looking video. Same problem at times on TNT HD. What is going on? Am I not...
