Hi. Over at NDS.com they have a news article about new features coming to sattilite boxes and the reporter said broadband internet? Does this mean that DirecTV is going to add a web browser to all of its boxes, including their DVR boxes? I was thinking about that because of DirecTV announcing it was getting into wireless broadband internet. I wondered if DirecTV might add a wifi connection to their set-top's and DVR set-tops were you could enter a wep key into the box and use the web browser with any wireless internet provider or DirecTV's? Thanks, Craig.

Uhhh, no Hughesnet uses the sat for outgoing packets. It does not use the phone line.

AS far as broadband into a d* reciever, i don't know.

You are correct. Direcway got away from dial return years ago. They only do 2 way "high speed" internet via a larger dish for transmitting & receiving. :D
