    Now that I have the latest update.. I am wondering if it's worth buying the needed equipment to hook my HR20 up to the internet for DoD?

    - How much free stuff in on DoD yet?

    - How much of it is HD?

    - DoD content for ALL channels or just a few?

    1) A lot of it is free but a lot of it is movies from premium movie channels.

    2) Only a couple of programs right now. Nothing worth watching.

    3) A lot of channels but not all.

    Look at it from the "glass half full" perspective. It can only get better. As Earl has stated, even though this is a NR, it is still in beta testing.

    Yep, there a few weeks ago there were 2 HD shows available (neither very good). As of last week when I checked, they're both gone.

    As a result, I haven't used DOD yet.

    SD just doesn't look very good on a 126" screen.

    There have been a few HD offerings. Early on The Guardian was available. Be warned though a full length movie in HD can be a long download. You're looking at 20 - 30GB of data.

    I'm sure they'll be a little more attentive to the offerings as they get closer to actual launch.

    There are approximately 3000 free titles available. HD is expected to be available by the end of November. There are a fair amount of channels that have DOD content available (approx. 20).
