    Thanks Earl for all you have given us in support of our DirecTV activities. I for one completely understand when changes have to be made for the better, and wish you the best of luck in the future.

    Thank You Earl. You and your team helped me start the HD revolution in my home at its inception. The help from the staff and others here were PRICELESS!!!!!

    Earl, I don't post, I just read, and I have followed you from the Tivo forum to DBSTalk. You are the very best! You are a hero to me. Thanks for your service to this and past communities. And thanks for your time and talent. You have helped me in many ways. Keep "thinking like and engineer" and look forward to a bright future. You deserve the very best! I will miss you greatly.

    Folks, we're going to continue to let this thread live until late in the day of May 25th (next Sunday). Earl was quite the prolific poster :) and to pay homage, the thread will be open (roughly) one minute for every post that Earl ever made :)

    That means 28,158 minutes which is 19.55 days. This thread was posted on the afternoon of 5/6 so we will close it late evening on 5/25.

    You have one more week to offer or re-offer your appreciation.

    I started coming here in December 2006 when I got my HR20. Without you and DBStalk my HR20 soon would have been thrown out the window. I became a regular visitor here and one thing I quickly learned to do every time I visited was to search for all post by Earl Bonovitch because they were always the most helpful. Thanks for all your help and good luck in your future endeavors.

    Thank you for all the service you have done to DBSTalk. You are one of the principal players in transforming DBSTalk into what it is today.

    Even if I do Dish Network stuff and am a cable subscriber (and shhh...-oh well, I know my parents were at one point pre-2002 part of some D* hacking thing - I remember vividly the days we'd find new locals and I'd look for what market they were in, like the time WTVR came in), I still thank you.

    Wow, I have been off for a while and did not learn this news till now.

    As always for such situations I am sad of losing a valuable person and source of information, but happy to know that you are going on with new adventures.

    Thanks and good luck Earl.

    Thanks Earl. It was your posts on that I looked forward to and which finally convinced me to move on to the new HR20.

    Good luck to you!

    We were all very surprised as you are now.

    We're hoping Earl pops in to see all his tributes here, so he can see all the real appreciation comments on all his contributions.
