I am sold on it. I have placed a pre-order and can't wait to switch. My 721 has served me well but this is too much to pass on! :D

DVDDAD: It is still there. I just watched it. If you have any pop up blockers, hold down the CTRL Key while you click the link, and you will get it.

Fox HD - Maybe not

One thing I noted from theDitecTV rep in that video when he was describing the services to be added, he noted some HD services, but said "Fox wide-screen" which, to me, implies not all HD. Does anyone have any scoop on Fox's plans?

Fox broadcasts in 480p. Some stations only show in 480i. Neither is "HD". I believe they are supposed to go HD (not sure which format) starting this fall.

I believe that Fox will be 720p. They will start in the fall.

Did I miss something in that video? I watched and it really showed nothing.

Yeah - HD recording. Nothing wiz-bang though. I saw 3 different HD PVR's at CES, and this video could have been for any for all the details they gave.

Not saying this unit is not great, just you can't really tell anything about it from this video IMHO.

HD DVR...Other Manufacturers?

Great information...thanks. Does anyone know if other manufacturers will market a similar DVR receiver? I am concerned about the quality of the signal and features on the first edition of such a box.

At this point DIRECTV has blocked out all other manufacturers from making a competitive Box, since they want to standardize all receivers some day soon like Dish has, thus making them all under the DIRECTV name, and since Hughes is partner with DIRECTV they are the easiest to standardize. So, I don't expect to see any other brands in on this HD Box, but only time will tell, I might be wrong. I would not be concerned about the same problems that the 921 has, I think that is why they have delayed the intro of this Box, to learn from what Dish did wrong with the 921 and what people hate or love about it. in other words NO "official HD DirecTivo support forum" will be needed. expect the HD Tivo to have almost no quality faults or major operating problems, that is what I expect for long wait and about $1000 worth of my money, don't you? :)

If you have not yet seen the video, this is almost your last chance, word is that they will take it down before the unit is released on 3/31/04. see it now!
