    The Energy Star Qualified Product List shows a new DIRECTV receiver model L14-100 as of yesterday. It looks to be an SD receiver.

    Fascinating. L is an odd letter with which to start a receiver name. Makes me wonder if it's even bound for the US.

    I think it's a Latin America Receiver. Unless they're changing their numbering scheme.

    The list does say: "Below are currently qualified ENERGY STAR models available for sale in the U.S. and Canada."

    Who knows? :shrug:

    Learn something everyday. Since ENERGY STAR(R) is a US Government joint program between the EPA and DOE, I was surprised to see Canada listed above. But going to the energystar.gov website, they list the following international partners:
    Australia
    Canada
    European Union
    European Free Trade Association
    Japan
    New Zealand
    Switzerland
    Taiwan

    And as the OP stated, this is new. I looked at the list yesterday morning and the L14-100 wasn't listed.

    As I understand it, the LA version would be a D14L.

    Maybe it's designed to be sold to businesses to receive DMX (Sonic Tap).

    Yeah, I just looked at the list yesterday or Thursday. This was Thursday's update (not sure when it hit the site).

    Definitely not HD as it doesn't list any advanced features.

    Wonder if it is an SD version of the H25 form factor?

    Very interesting. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I still think this is for Latin America. Latin America receivers start with L instead of D.

    Directv Latin America uses the same names of Directv US, they just add an L at the beginning.

    Looks like the same "AV OUT" connector as the H25 HD Receivers.

    very basic, and functional. You'd think that if the device was intended for countries with a Spanish language primacy at least some of the decaling and button nomenclature would be in Spanish.

    Hi
    I Have just joined to find out if anyone knows more about this product the DIRECTV L14-0-100

    I have this box in my apartment in Venezuela and it is awful.

    Its basic and it works for TV but it also has wifi connection. i have tested speeds there to be less than .7mbs, certainly no good for FaceTime.

    firstly it is impossible to upgrade this product simply because there is none available, it is also nearly a three year waiting list to get something like can TV.

    So my question is, is there something i can do to boost the wifi signal?

    There is no software portal, it is all controlled i guess by the management of the building.

    Any help greatly appreciated.
