This issue leads this thread to be the most viewed by a 3 to 1 margin and most replied by an even wider margin. Earl, who is well connected, has stated several times recently, "DLB is not in active development, and there are no indications that it will change any time soon." I have the time to drop the President of D* a letter regarding the issue. I'm not sure what good it will do as I get the distinct impression that what the customer wants is the farthest thing from management's mind. It's a crying shame when a company fails to devote adequate resources to the development of their "flagship product" (HD DVR). I strongly urge everyone to recall the efforts of fans of TV shows like Roswell and Jericho. Roswell fans kept the show alive by sending bottles of tobasco sauce. Fans of Jericho sent nuts. What can we send the head honcho of D* to make the point? What my pet cockatiel drops on the cage bottom comes to mind. Take the time to copy one of the excellent letters posted here or draft your own. If we want DLB, we have to awaken management to their subordinate's complete failure to address customer concerns on all levels. Someone should be called in to explain what has happened since the introduction of the HR20. D* does not care and will not care until it hears from enough unhappy customers.
