    Are you predicting that groovadelic isn't going to leave DirecTV or that DirecTV isn't going to remarry TiVo? I'd agree with you on the latter, but remain agnostic on the former.

    And I say they were never there in the first place. Just a collective hallucination.

    That is most certainly not accurate, since the D10 satellite that launched yesterday won't go live until mid-September. Do you really think they'll shut off the MPEG2 HD channels without any notice?

    I believe the Costco HR20's have a sticker on the box advising that they are leased.

    I agree that that MPEG2-HD is on its way out, but it's hard to believe that D* will be able to install 5LNB dishes for all of its existing HD customers by the end of the year. They're not likely to...

    That call was NOT about broadband converters. It referred to B-Band Converters or BBC's. These will be required to receive programming from the new satellite which is scheduled to launch next...

    Depends what you mean by required, I guess. It isn't required for any technical purpose, but the installer, if you use one, will tell you it's a requirement. I connected the phone cord to the HR20...

    Yes, I had to add the #include <vlc_url.h> to compile the vstream module. I think that became necessary with 0.8.5.

    I don't miss extraction as much as I thought I would. TyTool DVD's look fine on SD sets, but they look like crap on an HDTV. You can really see how low the resolution is. Once you get used to HD...

    I don't think so. I just replaced the ty.c file that ships with VLC with the one from Sourceforge and ran ./configure and then ./make long enough for the new libty_plugin.so to be built. I then...

    I've switched to an HR20, and I don't have either of my DirecTivos running at the moment, but I have compiled the module on Fedora for each new version of VLC, including 0.8.6. My guess is that you...

    Yes. The remote can be changed from IR to RF by entering a few codes and keypresses. It's done from the onscreen setup menu.

    This is inaccurate. Any UPNP server -- WMP11, Tversity, Twonky, etc. -- will work with the HR20.

    The HR20 doesn't use the phone line for software updates. It's all done by satellite. A phone line would be useful only for caller ID and PPV orders.

    Yes, you can record from the OTA tuners.

    The GUI on the HR20 is much faster than any DirecTiVo.

    That may not change your router's identification, though. It's based on your TiVo's service number. With my Netgear router, I can change the...
