Was over at the neighbors house (spose it was about 2 years ago) and the DirecTV guy was FLOORED to see a Panasonic DirecTV receiver.

I knew it was old, the Panasonic TV it was originally paired with took a dump several years ago, and the garage sale Mitsubishi 32 inch CRT finally died, so he upgraded the Panny D* when I put in a Sony LCD panel.

The DirecTV guy was just fascinated with the early history of the DirecTV boxes. I told him Radio Shack had Optimus receivers, Sony had a few models, Magnavox of course, and RCA had a boat load of models along with Hughes. He'd only ever seen D* stuff.

I've got 2 Samsung HD receivers (360s I think) out in the work shop somewhere.

Many times in the 90s I would set up an RCA CRT TV, RCA VCR, and an RCA D*. People liked how everything worked, and since many of my customers had pretty much all the same equipment, my job got easier.

Chances are that the D* tech hasn't been around very long, and nobody mentioned the old D*Tivo's :lol:
