According to Directv's 1Q or 2Q Earnings conference they said this fall is their major Inverstor day Confernce. Any one wonder what they're going to show off. I hope they reveal more about the new Tivo and also reveal a new hd user interface.

RE: streaming vs. copying, I think slides 109 and 110 of today's DirecTV investor day conference presentation make it clear that "streaming outside the home" is on the table for 2011, along with "porting".

New hand held device for techs? Looks like it could speed up the process by enabling the installers to do a lot of the mundane tasks that currently require a phone call (slide 124. pg 62).

Mike White is up now, BTW ..

The thing that is probably most interesting to the group here will be the tech stuff. That starts with Romulo Pontual within the next few slides.

It's a good time to start listening right now if you haven't been.
