The coming of the 24 series was huge news this year. And, it's no secret that DIRECTV likes to spread manufacturing among multiple companies. We're proud to enter the next phase in the First Look Series... the DBSTalk Second Look. Here, you can get the facts on the next two members of the Hx24 family... the HR24-100 and H24-700. 24 Series Second Look I'd like to thank the entire test team, especially Doug Brott, tfederov, Milkman, and HDTVfan0001 for the photos for this second look. Please note that some DBSTalk.com testers and staff members may have received free equipment from DIRECTV or its partners for the purpose of evaluation and testing.
