    MLB Extra Innings problems

    Half the SF Giants games aren't even in HD and the Dodgers most of the time is HD but 4:3. I've emailed MLB and DirecTV and they never even answer me. Next year? Forget it. I'll get games on ESPN and FOX.

    Will This HR21 Work for Me??

    Just got off the phone and they said I can only do one upgrade every six months. My last HD Tuner upgrade was 2-months ago. So even if I want an HD-DVR right now I have to wait another 4-months! Gawd, they suck. AND, when I upgraded to the HD Tuner 2-months ago, the CSR told me there would be...

    Will This HR21 Work for Me??

    Thanks for all the great info. One more question, I've been with them for 4 years and just upgraded from an older HD receiver to the newer one with the multi dish. I got it with no commitment whatsoever, since I was already on a month-to-month basis. If I go HD DVR, it's two year commitment time...

    Impressed - Finally!

    The new HD lineup is sweet and even more is the pic quality. The Mpeg4 is how HD is supposed to look. I've been waiting for this for years. Started with DISH HD, then VOOM, then DTV, put up with the same lame channels for years. I'm happy now :hatsoff:

    H20 Remote Control REALLY Stinks

    and the friggin in-picture when you're on the guide menu is now in the upper-right corner instead in the usual upper-left corner. Are they purposely trying to drive us insane??? And no, I will never get used to this remote. As soon as I hit the enter button, it falls out of my hand. Why is the...

    H20 Remote Control REALLY Stinks

    Just did an upgrade to the H20, what's with the keypad at the bottom of the rc? Makes it totally top heavy. And the new enter button is at the very bottom. What was wrong with the old design???? Who's in charge of designs? Monkeys? Now it takes two hands to operate :(

    DIRECTV Local HD Programming Now Available in 59 Markets

    Not only does DTV want more $$ from me for locals but I also have to upgrade my base package too, a total of $20/month. Screw that, I just use my old Voom OTA antenna for the local in question!

    Sports package games in HD

    If MLB has been like it has the last two years, there's one game a day and it's usually the sh*t games like Kansas City vs Tampa Bay. This is the 5th year for me with HDTV and there's still not much, especially sports. My HDTV gets older and HD content stays the same. Nice, huh?

    High-Def Buyers Angered

    Well, I agree. Four years ago I bought an $$ HDTV. Went through E*. 5-6 channels I think. Year after that went to VOOM, more HD channels but ones that I wouldn't watch in a blue moon, like the "watch a tree grow" channel - you know what I mean. Then when VOOM folded I went with D*. It's four...

    High-Def Buyers Angered

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/20/AR2007012000070.html?sub=new Pay thousands of dollars for twelve channels. I've had a very expensive Mits HD set for four years and I have eleven HD channels! Good old D*! Up from the five I had 4 years ago.....but only eleven out...

    I Live in San Diego and want Hawaii Locals!

    They did it this last year. Remember? You can only get your time zone distant networks? I live in Cali had east coast networks for years and HD east coast for 3 years, then the congressional act of whatever it was, took effect and no more HD/SD distant networks.

    I Live in San Diego and want Hawaii Locals!

    Didn't even know about FTA. On their page right now. So, it's free? Just pay for a receiver? I have an old D* dish, single lnb, that will work? Know about the pic quality? Regarding install, I'll cal them to see if I can do that myself. Installed my own C-Band system, D* system, etc. It...
