Just thought this may eventually affect us - since Pace builds some of the goodies we use.

Just read an article recently, don't remember where, that ranked the top five STB makers. Pace was number 1. Thomson and Humax were also in the top five with Humax rated fifth. Can't remember who the other two were.

Made me reconsider my opinions about the folks who make the HRs. If Thomson is that good, then it would be logical to assume that the 20-100s were not the fault of a bad manufacturer, but rather the fault of D*, who must have given the specs to Thomson.

The best manufacturers are peas in the same pod. They all have the technology. They all have the expertise. They all have the facilities.

Samsung and Goldstar went from being regarded as second tier manufacturers to first rate by focusing on building reliable pieces which had superior performance (Goldstar is LG).

Any of these guys can do it. It's all about what they choose to do.
