    DBSTalk showed you the H25-500 and H25-100, and we're pleased to round out this first look series with the H25-700 High Definition receiver!

    The H25-700 is functionally identical to the other members of the H25 family and will use the same cables and RF kit as the other H25s.

    Can't say enough about these guys. I have 2 H25's now, a 100 and a 700, and they are bad fast. I watch all my TV with the one in my living room and basically use it as a "head" unit to set recordings on all my DVR's.

    Nice work on the 3rd Look.

    Now DirecTV is up to 3 versions (virtually all the same but from different manufacturers) of the H25 HD Receiver.

    Gotta say that I always love the look of these First Looks. Very professional and visually stunning and I always enjoy reading them.

    Stupid question - but what is the USB port on these units for? I forget.

    My H25-700 is the fastest receiver that I have. I also have it hooked up to use as a way to select shows to record on the various DVR's that we have. :):)

    Nicely done!

    I'm starting to think that we could drop to just two DVRs in our household and replace one of them with an H2x receiver.

    I like having the pause and rewind functions most of the time when watching, but in one of our locations it's very rare that we watch any live TV there at all. Not that we watch that much live TV elsewhere in the house...

    Not very well at least. If you plug it into a computer USB, with the screen on, it will say not charging. At least with the screen off, I can get maybe a 40% charge overnight from a PC. The USB port just doesn't provide enough power for a reasonable charge time.
