Hello all, I know it has been a long time since I registered... Truth is, between all the acronyms and tech talk, I felt out of my depth here... got discouraged and went away. Long story, short: Because I am ready to make the jump to HD, I came back for a second try. I've been with D* since about 2004. No one will mistake me for a power user. Most of my equipment is quite dated. Currently, I have a Phase III dish feeding a single R22-100 which has served me faithfully for the last 3-4 years. I have been very happy with it but am feeling limited by having just two tuners, single-room viewing and no HD. So I have been lurking here for about two weeks with an eye to learning about the options out there. Based on my information gathering, I am leaning towards retiring my R22, getting an HR-34 for the main TV in the living room and getting an HD receiver for the bedroom. I know about the C31s but am primarily interested in using the bedroom system to watch recorded content from the HR-34. Trick-play of live TV is a secondary concern for me and if the C31s end up priced at $99, I don't see the point of waiting for one. Sound reasonable?
