    I like Avatar a lot.

    How about using cool color names and doing a series?

    We should ask our wives what they would want to call it. DIRECTV needs to get beyond their base market of a bunch of guys sending notes to each other about their TVs. :)

    So anything that that is not a bunch of letters, numbers, or an acronym would be better.

    DirecTV Plus HD DVR!

    Just kidding. We have a company with (IMO) one of the coolest names out of all TV service companies, and yet their flagship receiver has the dullest name it could possibly have. I guess there really isn't any need for a cool name, but it would be nice.

    I thought it might be cool to call it by one of the names of the satellites of our outer planets. But then I reviewed the names of said satellites--some are kind of cool, but some definitely not:

    Io
    Europa
    Ganymede
    Callisto
    Mimas
    Enceladus
    Tethys
    Dione
    Rhea
    Titan <<<<<<<<< cool, but in reality this satellite is cloud-covered
    Hyperion <<<<<< has potential
    Iapetus
    Phoebe <<<<<< prob not cool
    Miranda
    Ariel <<<<<< reminiscent of the Disney character
    Umbriel
    Titania <<<<<< possibly
    Oberon
    Proteus <<<<<< possibly
    Triton <<<<<<<<< cool
    Nereid

    Have you not heard of multi-tasking?:)

    My laptop is on a credenza behind the couch facing my 56" Sammy DLP. I can do a lot of "live" (forum based) testing from this "position". In fact, I use the TV (in terms of raw hours) more like a multi-channel radio than a TV. Except for prime time with "she who must be obeyed", 90% of my viewing is news. (Although I consider FOX and Link-TV more propaganda vehicles than news networks). This is not to say they have nothing to offer (and is WAY off topic), but Fox's "fair and balanced" is anything but, and Link-TV's Democracy Now should be retitled, "Effluvia of the Revolution".:)

    Good call!

    I really like this, but using all upper case in gray except for DVR in blue :

    ENDEAVOR

    "DIRECTV proudly reintroduces the ENDEAVOR line of High-Definition DVRs: HR20-700 and HR20-100 ..."

    :up:

    I like Endeavour, but I prefer this spelling. Also, Hyperion has a great ring to it!

    IF the box were to live up to its full potential and deliver VOD and full multimedia capabilities, including streamed network video, I'd call it "Synergos".

    But for now, I'd call it "Almost There".

    I know this is an old thread, but I have had naming ideas on the back burner for a couple of weeks. My suggestion, weak I know and surely full of legal ramnifications, how about "Divo" ? Too much time on my hands, maybe when D10 takes its first breath I'll get better. :)

    How about "Phoenix" as a name for the HR20? This product has definitely risen from the ashes and is reborn (at least if you compare it to the functionality or lack thereof that we had a year ago). Not to mention the fact that we all "went through the fire" with this product. Come to think of it, I can recall wanting to burn it a couple of times when it lost recording or rebooting spontaneously.
