I just returned to DBSTalk after about a year away. I had to disconnect my D* service after just needing a budget adjustment. We're actually getting hooked up again today and I knew one bookmark I'd be reactivating with my service back in place!

My question is, why are there so few threads from prior to June?? I seem to remember threads being archived a whole lot longer when I was active before. Am I missing where older threads are at? I just hate to re-ask questions that have already been discussed many times already, and would prefer to just search through older discussions.

On that note, how about older equipment reviews? I had an HR20-700 before I disconnected. I'm wondering where I could find "First Look" write ups for the HR22 receivers, as I assume I'll probably get one of those today when the installer arrives.

Glad to be back, just want to catch up! Thanks.

Welcome back! I think whatever you're looking for as far as archived threads is still searchable going back years with the search feature. Have you tried it?

All First Looks and other tips can be found in the DIRECTV Information, Tips and Resources subforum of the DIRECTV General Discussion forum. There are a bunch of stickies there that you will find helpful.

Great. I now see the First Look info and I'll try the search function. I just assumed since the threads weren't showing that they probably wouldn't be searched either. But you know what they say about assuming things! :lol:

Thanks.
