I have no delusions dwcolvin that calling D* corporate is going to speed up the beta testing in any way - LOL. I am calling them simply to search for a more definitive date of when they feel the testing might be completed by. I did this in December regarding the street date that the HR34 would be available to existing customers instead of only new customers. The toll free reps could give me no dates of any kind despite my repeated attempts. One 6 minute phone call to corporate and not only did they inform me of the February 9 release date, but they also went into great detail as to why there was a delay. Again I will report back if I learn any new info.
