I had to call DirecTV with a problem with my service and they elevated me to level 2. Anyways, whilethe rep was helping me he voluntarily told me that Memphis would be upgradedto Mpeg 4 this spring around the end of April-first of May. I believe we are #44 on the list so I thought I would just pass on what they had told me.

No not at this time, they will carry it at a later date in the future.

Is the source of that info reliable? My antenna is only at a semi permanent place because I thought I'd be rid of it by the end of next year. If i'm going to need it full time, I need to find a better place aesthetically wise.

I figure it would be sometime in the summer when we would get upgraded. This is fine with me. Hopefully they'll have all the bugs worked out of the HD-DVR by then.

El Paso market is 99th on the list. They are still working on the first 12, so as a rough guess, it will probably be sometime in the second half of next year.

There is no set schedule out, so this is just a guess-t-mate, by the speed it is going now.

Just got the upgrade...boy the dish is huge! Probably twice the size as the triple LNB. I feel bad for the installers lugging that sucker up the ladder...
Picture quality is good, possibly a little better....
There is no DVI hookup on the H20 only HDMI, component or S-Video. Does anyone know if there are any cables DVI on one end and HDMI on the other?
As far as what philly locals are in HD, I have two channels of each (cbs, abc, nbc and fox) one SD version and one HD version
I also still have the the NY locals on 80, 82, 86 and 88
NO UPN or WB
