    Earl does not work for D*. He has an engineering contact that provides some information. He also runs the CE program for HR20 owners.

    Quick question: will the existing HD channels move to the corresponding SD slot when the new HD channels are fired up? In other words, will ESPN HD be 206 instead of 73?

    Some say he's 12 feet tall and is able to domesticate jungle animals with his hair.

    He once knocked down a tree and used it to win the javelin throw in the '88 olympics.

    Bill Brasky, anyone?

    Thanks for the info.

    And thanks to the people who run this site. Lot of great information here. Wish I knew about it for more than the past 48 hours.

    Why would he run the CE program for HR20 owners if he doesnt work for the company? Who gets the info back to them? Just asking cause of my obvious ignorance, did my first CE last night.

    And you know this how?

    Earl donates a great deal of his time to this site, and manages the CE program for all the DIRECTV plus receivers, not just the HR20. He has stated many, many times that he does not work for DIRECTV. He has developed and maintained some very good contacts within DIRECTV. He trusts them, and they trust him. It's a good thing for all of us.

    Earl has stated numerous times he DOES NOT WORK FOR DirecTV. He has a contact there that has allowed him some access and the CE program grew from that. DirecTV gets info back from here, and from our receivers phoning in and being connected to the net. Its really an amazing thing for DirecTV to be involved in, no other CE company has a program anywhere near the scope of this one.

    D* can read the CE forum on this board just like anyone else. That's where we all post our feedback.

    He does have contacts which he has gained because of the credibility of this Forum. After you have been around awhile, you will understand.
