The H20 is the only HD receiver available from D* right now. There are 2 versions of the H20. The H20-600 is made by LG and mfg'd in Korea and China. The H20-100 is made by RCA in Mexico. Many H20-600s suffer from several problems including a slow guide, random reboots, caller ID problems and overheating. None of these problems exist in the H20-100, which is entirely different inside. However for the most part, the menus are the same. If you talk to Robert, ask him if it's possible to get an H20-100 instead of the -600.GSH said:If I sign up for Direct TV, which receiver should I request. I need an HDMI connection. From the posts it appears that the H20 is their state of the art receiver. I assume that it can be provided with a Direct package?
If you talk nice to them or threaten to switch to cable or dish, they'll upgrade your receiver and dish for very little cost to you and possibly nothing.fleetmack said:i have had a samsung sir-ts360 for about 2 years that i had to pay $330 for, is that mpeg4 as well or is directv going to make me buy YET ANOTHER receiver?!
