    Can you use S-video and the HDMI output at the same time?

    All outputs are active at the same time.

    Yeah, skip the H20 and go for the gusto. Get an HR20 :)

    Beyond that, I can't think of anything. The recent software releases are looking very good.

    Cheers,

    Dripping...
    If you get the H20-600 version it tends to run a tad warm (read hot) so make sure you keep it in a well ventilated space and nothing placed on top of it.

    Hmm I wonder if I should of picked the HR20 instead of the H20 :( Is the Ethernet port on the back of the box used to talk to Direct TV?

    I guess it's too late now to switch?

    Never too late to switch, costs adjust slightly, but never too late. :)

    The ethernet jack on the HR20 is for Music&Photos today and VOD very soon.

    Perhaps other features un-announced as well.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    lol sweet I just noticed something the day I have the installer come out and get my HD box is the day DirectTV is having the DirecTV 10 sat launched :D I might see if I can change it now but if it's going to be a hassle I wont bother.

    I take it I will get the streamline 5LNB dish?

    I don't believe any of them do. But after running for about 10 to 15 minutes it should reset on it's own and download the new software.

    "Before you know it", you'll have the latest national release, which may still be last summer's update.

    lol well I ok we will see how it goes.. but I think I just will make it with the slimline.. if I'm correct the slimline needs a wider view of the sky and inputting my zip code on the site it says

    Elevation: 35.0
    Azimuth: 232.0

    "Wider" needs to be referenced to something [that is narrower]. The SATs are in the same place so it really comes down to how many of them you have with your current dish.
    The Phase III looks at 101, 110, & 119, while the 5 LNB dish needs to look 2 more degrees east to the 99 SAT. Now if you have a single LNB dish, yes the new dish will need to see a significantly wider view of the sky.

    I'm pretty sure it was here (I thought I saved the picture to my computer) something took a picture of the slimline's LNB's and text labeled them for which one did what.

    without a picture: the center LNB is a combo [99, 101, 103] the first one "off center" is for the 110 & the farthest from center is the 119.
    Does this help?
