    For DirecTV I have an RCA 430rg (SD) - I LOVE THIS BOX!!!!!! (Its as fast as my 420re was -- NOTHING OUT THERE AS FAST AS THIS)

    I have been a customer for many years and I didnt wanna lose what I consider to be THE BEST BOX i have ever had... (I am grateful the 430 is 99% the same)

    Wheather you dave DISH or DirecTV or whatever,im happily curious what ya'll are using these days :)

    We do not watch SD at all.
    Receivers in my signature. The new receivers and software are plenty fast enough.

    My favorite box is the Hughes E86...but since its not Mpeg4 compatible, I had to go with my second favorite, the H24.

    I have Genie, and HR24's too, but the H24 is the fastest DirecTv box I have, other than the Hughes.

    All HD (or "HD capable" for the R22) DVRs here at present;

    1 Genie (HR34)
    1 HR24-500
    1 HR21-100
    1 HR22-100
    1 R22-200

    Genie is the favorite, despite its occasional, though increasingly rarer these days, quirky behavior.

    Your box isn't as fast as a h25. It might be as fast as a hr44. I've used it. It's been a while, but I've used it ages ago...

    Well on my RCA on the 800 music channels the audio is there INSTANTLY!!!!!! -- Going from 804 to 835 for example the audio on 835 is there straight away,NO DELAY AT ALL :) (I love my rca)

    The video channels render usually within 1/2 a second (Sometimes 1 second,sometimes slightly shorter/longer (I guess it depends on what is on the channel when your tuning to it,im not sure))


    Thank you everyone so far for sharing what you like,its interesting :)

    Wow a General Instruments 2750R??

    I was gonna make this thread asking for ANY box (Cable/sat) but seeing this is the "General satellite discussion" message base I felt only asking what SAT stuff people have would be best.....

    I guess you're lucky your box is APG. Here, we have an HR34 and C41, plus an inactive H25.

    However, I don't see the purpose of this query: Dude- look in people's profiles. Unless you're just looking to create dissension.

    Ya Im just glad I found a box just like the One I had! (RCA 420 / RCA 430 (Kinda neat))

    There are some things about this one that are not as good as my 420 was!!

    1) If you DELETE CHANNELS FROM THE GUIDE,you can still enter them in directly! (Entering 299 will goto 299 even if its been deleted) -- On my 420 it would say "CHANNEL NOT AVAILABLE" (As it should)

    I contribute that to things getting worse and not as good as they were.... (430s are a slight bit NEWER than 420)

    2) The good colour themes i had in my 420 arent there in the 430... (I used the BLUE theme that the 420 had (MY 430 has a different BLUE THEME (Not as nice so i have GREY selected as its the nicest looking out of the ones I now have)))

    3) If I enter a # and let it sit for 2 seconds it goes to the closest thing (A royal pain) -- If I enter 25 and pause for 2 seconds It goes to 025 (The 420 did not,it just went back to the current # i was on) So in some ways it is not as good!

    I didnt realise most of you have your setup IN YOUR SIGNATURE,im sorry for creating this thread.. If the staff wants to delete it,its fine with me :)
