are you just taking Fortec or all recievers?

There are a few receivers that do component output (Coolsat 5000, Pansat 3500)

I don't care about the brand, I want the best one that does component...

I use a DirecTV H20 receiver, so I want something that has nice menus like it.

So I'll check out the Pansat 3500 and Coolsat 5000.

Which is the best receiver with component out and digital audio out?

I still really like my Fortec II, I just realize that it is not the best blind scan reciever out there right now. I am sure Fortec will fix the blind scan bugs soon tho, as this is thier flagship reciever.

I've heard good things about both receivers. I've never used a Coolsat, but I'm sure they're good from what I've read. Being used to a Pansat, I'd probably go with the 3500 personally.

Guess I'll read both the Pansat 3500 review and the Mercury II and figure it out. Locally I can pick up the Mercury II but not a 3500..

Can't say much about anything besides the 3500 since that's what I have... I love the 3500. It's a little pricy but not too bad. The sd card is nice since you can save your channels and flash files easily without having to actually connect the receiver to a computer or any of that... just save on the card like a floppy disk and off you go. There's lots of places online you can get a receiver. A good portion of those places are valid and legit (check out sponsers)
