Last week I posted about the phone call I received which was a pre-recorded msg. talking about the new exciting features coming to D-Tivo after the first of the year Well when I got home yesterday, there it was. The pre-recorded msg. with the Are you ready for HD. It was the usual D* speak mentioning 5LNB dish, BBC converters, etc. But of course, listening to it just adds fuel to the fire of heightening the anticipation we all have.

And oh by the way, it DID NOT give a start date, much to my chagrin.

I got the call yesterday too. I actually called D to ask and was told "sometime this fall"
talk about vague......either they don't tell the CSR's anything, or they are afraid to promise a date and then not do it.

I got the call last night. Generally Mrs. Shadow doesn't like when computers call us but in this case their computer was talking to our machine and when you think about it, that's kinda funny.

Oh now if that wasn't a bit weird, was reading this thread when the call came in. :eek2: I think I heard the machine voice whisper "I'm watching yoooouuuu!"
