    WOW....

    You guys did a great job putting the "First Look" document together. I'm sure all that read it will appreciate all the work that went into the writing of the document.

    Thanks for your hard work!

    Excellent first look and thanks!

    I would also like to send a special thanks to all field testers. A lot has gone on behind the scenes by DBSTalk members and DirecTV to get this receiver working and ready for public consumption. Kudos to all!

    Thanks for the great write up on the new HR21.

    This may not be the correct forum, but this does relate to the HR21. I waiting at home as I type this message for the delivery and installation of my new HR2? receiver. I've had a HR10-250 for since they first came out, and I've upgrade it to a 750GB hard-disk, and enabled many blocked features... but I digress.

    My question is, do I know which receive I will get? I'm hoping for an HR20, as I have an OTA antenna installed which I used with the HR10-250. On top of that, there are quite a few digital / HD local channels which are available OTA, but not from D*TV. It seems that perhaps the HR21 has not be released yet, but will be released later this month. If that is the case, that's a good thing in my book.

    Thanks,
    Mitch

    You most likely will receive the HR20... as the HR21 is just now starting to enter the distribution chain.
