I found this place from TivoCommunity probably about 2006. As the info and talk about the HR10's was fading from there, the interest and info in the new DVR and HD channels led me here. Now I can't leave! This site sucks me in everyday, looking for the latest morsel of information. I wish all of my interests had a site that was this good, this informative and this up-to-date. Other sites should take note of how DBSTalk.com does it!

Happy B-Day! Hard to believe that I found this site over 6 years ago. Of course I was on AVS over a decade ago so I guess it makes sense. I feel old. :)

Thank you Chris and Mods for all the hard work you do here!

I think I'd have to find another hobby in retirement if not for this DIRECTV and dbstalk fascination of mine.

Happy birthday to DBSTalk.com, the ONLY forum I regularly read and participate in.

Also, a special thank you to Chris Blount (for creating the forum) and the moderators. This forum never would never have developed into what it is today without your help and guidance.

Happy Birthday and THANKS to Chris and the Mods. . . I've only been here since my HD conversion and not sure where I was from doing Tivo Conversions in 2001 or so and the TivoCommunity until HD.

Again a big THANKS!

This site, all of its fantastic mods, and members have been invaluable to me, and very entertaining as well.
I only hope that I can some how give back a fraction of what it has given me.

Please don't put out any commercials with obviously paid celebrities acting like they really care that you've been around for 15, er.. 8 years. :D

This IS a Birthday worth celebrating! I'm thankful every day that I found this "little" family to visit with and learn from!

Thanks, Chris, and all the rest who helped build this place into my favorite place.

My wonderful cat, Kawie, passed away on 11/23/08. He had a remarkable soul, and I miss him deeply. Thank you, my buddy, for sharing your life with me.

While I'm not the most prolific of posters I have been around these parts for quite awhile and witnessed just a few changes. This forum is an incredible resource to us all and very much appreciated!

Happy Birthday DBSTalk.com! :hb:
