    There would be absolutely no difference in picture quality, the signal is digital.

    Not quite true (and not totally false either)... If the signal is degraded on copper to the point that error correction can't restore the bits, digital errors will occur and it will be visible. Whereas fiber can run data longer distances without repeaters.

    Cheers,

    And if you use a piece of string in place of the copper cable, the receiver will give you a Searching for satellite signal error. :lol:

    You know what would make this all a moot point? The long lost HMC. Master reciever & slave boxes. Just have the slaves have no sat in, just HMC in. Problem solved. :)

    You really think DirecTV wouldn't charge a monthly fee for the slaves? I think you're crazy.

    Under this package, sure the slaves would be free. Up side to D is that they know that they slaves don't work without their master. You find the master, you find the slaves.

    Other packages, not so much.

    boy I wish this package would be official now. Thinking about adding hr20 soon. But wondering if i do that now, would i be eligible for this package? I have premier now for the past 4 years and it would be nice to get out from under a few fees.

    If this package does happen I don't see why you would not be eligible. You are able to change your package any time you want.

    Which on the TYPICAL run the length is a non factor and fiber would offer no advantage. A few of those really long ones though, sure that would help.
