Depends on where you get the unit, maybe they have lay-away.
I have had the price of $1499.00 confirmed by an internal source. The source also states that the release date will be May 2nd, 2007 (but this may change at any time)
I have a concern about the review, Earl stated that DIRECTV would have replacements for the RC64S remote, I find this doubtful but will check my sources.
Reason, if a someone was to loose the RC22 remote that comes with the Humax LD2060, DIRECTV will *NOT* replace it with another RC22.
If you want a RC22 the only people who can get you one is Humax. (I know from experience)
Now the RC16, RC23, RC24, RC32, RC32BB, RC32RF, & RC34 will control the DIRECTV functions of the receiver, however, DIRECTV has no code that will allow these remotes to control the TV functions of the Humax LD2060.
An automatic code search also failed to get control of the TV. If anyone knows a code that will allow these remotes to control the TV functions of the LD2060 please let me know.
If the SAT-GO follows in the footsteps of the LD2060 then this will be an issue for it as well. Like the LD2060, you may have to go to Humax for a remote replacement. I will grill my sources for an update.
