Congratulations!! You won't regret the switch. Did they say which HD receiver you will be getting? Hopefully it will be the Hughes HTL-HD receiver. Very reliable. I had Voom and hated the constant reboots and downtimes.

hey neutron, dosent directv only have hughes right now, I have not known them to carry any ts360's or others. Even replacements, if my ts360 went out, they told me they would send a htld, which reminds me, if I am not happy with my sammy, is there a way I can get a new htld reciever with my protection plan, or am I just stuck with the ts360 till I decide to buy something new

Hopefully the switch works out for you.

When I ordered my HD package back in February they sent me a Samsung TS-160. They said it would be a Samsung or a Hughes when I asked. So far no problems with this Samsung at all, I really like the caller ID feature too.

If you have their protection plan it should be covered.

D* has three HD receivers it installs: Hughes HTL-HD, Samsung TS360, and their new Directv branded HD receiver.

My wife is actually getting into this HDTV stuff now that we have a working HD receiver. She was turned off of DISH's crappy 811 and Voom's POS.
