For $186 (or even $200)... I might even have to buy another.

OK, I've had this unit for a couple weeks now and would have to say it more than serves it's purpose. Especially for the $186 I paid for it. My only gripe is that I need to find a way to make the guide bigger to see it from across the kitchen. The guide appears very small on a 10" screen. Then again, I haven't played with it much.

I mounted mine under my kitchen cabinet and when folded up, I retain all of my counter space. I just wish it could play XM with the screen closed like Earl mentioned in an earlier post. Right now, I just fold it up about halfway so it doesn't turn off.

Other than that, the wife is happy since this is one of her favorite rooms. Now she can watch Food Network while she burns! ;)

All images are links to two different files sizes; Large and Small. They are the same picture, just the Small is about 25% the size of the large..

Overall Image of the Unit:
Full
Small

Earl, please restore the links - it pointing to ads :(.

Hmmm.... I will have to replace all the links... since I gave up the server and the domain.

Give me a few days... I should still have the images on my home server...

On a positive note I was able to get one of these units new for $50 today (no it didn't "fall" off a truck). Seems pretty nice although I don't understand why Samsung made it a 4:3 set when the screen is really meant for 16:9. Ahh well...it's on my wife's desk and she's happy....that's all that matters.

Earl,

I think I now have the latest software on this machine...do you know if it's possible to make the Guide one touch? I don't see an option and the edgecutter menu doesn't appear to be active.

The unit we have gives you a choice of wide, but it's not quite 16:9 and normal (4:3). If you set the TV for it's wide mode and the reciever for 16:9 the top and bottom of the picture is cut off. I saw this mentioned in a review before I purchased it...and it does seem to be the case.

If you set the receiver for 4:3 and the TV for Wide you get stretch-o-vision.

Quick question about this machine....bought one new on ebay 4 months ago...with new access card. Worked well for 2 months but now it gets fuzzy picture when turned 180 degress (like viewing under cabinet mount). Works fine when not turned so it must be a short or something. Anyhow, If I bought a used machine on ebay without an access card could I just pull my access card out of the one I have now and use it or do I have to call and "marry" the access card with the new (used) unit?
Thanks

Typically DirecTV will insist that they send you a new Access Card to activate a used Receiver (~$20). But sometimes they'll let you re-marry your existing Access Card with another Receiver. Either way, you need to call them. You can't just move the Access Card.

You mean physically flipping the unit over?
Or selecting the option to reverse the image?

If it is physically flipping... then the wire may just be lose internally.

It isn't hard, but is a tad tricky to open it up.

Physically flipping...we have it mounted under our cabinet in the kitchen so to view you pull the screen down and rotate 180. I can poke my head under the cabinet and clearly see picture is great when I just have the screen down, but when I rotate it becomes fuzzy...I can keep unrotating and rotating until I get lucky and find a spot where it isnt so fuzzy but who wants to do that all the time, especially when all the fuzziness doesnt get cleared up, just enough to watch without being totally annoyed.

Was hoping I could just jump on ebay, find a cheap used one and plug my access card into and go but that doesnt sound like I can do that so its either try fixing or get a used one and get a new access card.
