    I was wondering whether the D12-100 receiver is capable of decoding MPEG-4 transmissions if and when D* converts all MPEG-2 transmissions to MPEG-4?:confused:

    Unfortunately not, you'll need an H21, H23, or H24 receiver for that.

    No, the D12 is MPEG2 only.

    You need an H2x or HR2x receiver for MPEG4.

    Well if you're just subscribing to the standard definition channels you don't need an MPEG-4 receiver. The MPEG-4 stuff is for Hd right now. Eventually everything will be on MPEG-4 but that won't be for a long while. Just think of the millions os MPEG-2 receivers out there? That's billions of dollars to convert all subscribers into it. That's years away though, no need for MPEG-4 if you're only wanting standard definition.

    That is unless you're in an MP4 local market.

    That sums it up quite nicely, pity the R22's are no longer available.
