    Well that doesn't include me then. I only get to about 89 bucks and I have 3 R15's and a samsung HD, plus locals, plus East and West feeds for NBC and ABC.

    I could belive 20 X 26 if the LNB included 72.5 and/or 95 otherwise I'd think 18 X 24 more likely.

    Guessing.... the new dish is optimsed for use with D10 and D11 when they are orbited. AT-9 being more optimised for SW1 and SW2.

    Is that just SD and DD or might it be 5.1?

    BET Jazz isn't available in 5.1, only stereo.

    The HD-Tivo? Wouldn't you need to get new tuner chips in order to receive MPEG4 encoding?

    So, we're all going to have to get another new dish in a year or so? :D

    Just a note, the PDF refereced in this thread had to be "taken" off-line, until it can be corrected by DirecTV to fix a privacy issue with the file.

    Hopefully it will be back soon...

    I'm new enough to D* that this is the first time I've really seen a corporate plan for the company. I liked a lot of the stuff I read in the PDF...just wondering from some of you D* veterans, do they typically follow through on these announcements? Are you in any way skeptical that they won't by end of 2007 have ~150 nat'l HD channels?

    I'm not in love with my HR10-250 so I'm looking forward to the release of the HR20 (and hoping it is in better shape at that point than the R15 that I currently own). But the thing I really look forward to is a D* tuner card for HTPC. Once that's available and I can get all my SD and HD content from D* satellites via HTPC, I'll build one and get rid of all my other HT components. Then I can have a fully customizable HD DVR experience. All I need from D* is the content - and if their predictions can be believed, they will be the leader in HD content by end of 2007.

    Feedback on any of these comments is welcome and appreciated.

    Earl the privacy issue is now fixed. And I think it's short now too. It's only 99 pages. I thought it was over 100 yesterday

    You are making the same mistake that I and others have made.

    The pdf says 'capacity', not that they will have the channels up. :) It took that chart to show me the light!

    I'll believe 4 PPV a month when I see it. That's 16 bucks retail! but it really would solidify my 100/month contribution for a few years, that's for sure.

    Hope it's not a rebate thing though or we are all in trouble

    Are there really 4 good PPVs worth watching each month? I don't do much PPV, but the few times I've looked, I've had a hard time finding anything worth watching.

    Depends if it is just limited to the normall PPV.
    If it includes the Thursday - Saturday late night PPVs...

    Then maybe...
