    So I looked at the numbers and 21 said either yes or no (IIRC, there were 23 of us in this round?)

    Of the five of us that didn't, would it be a smart idea to list the config?

    I've got a AT-9 dish going to an SWM8 (Version C1/HR1).

    The HR21 is networked using a Linksys WGA54G game adapter with firmware version 1.13 and a Linksys Router with firmware version 1.02.2.

    HDMI to the TV for picture and optical audio to an AV receiver for sound.

    Slimline dish connected via power-passing splitters to WB68 and SWM5 (testing round 3).

    HR21 connected to SWM5 using crappy pre-wired in-wall RG59 cable.

    HR21 connected via HDMI to LG 32" LCD TV model 32LC67D in master bedroom.

    HR21 set to 720p output. I leave it on Pillar Box format with Native OFF.

    Using LG TV for sound.

    Networked and Internet enabled.

    I have an AT-9 dish with 4 cables going to splitter and feeding 2 WB68's.

    My HR21-700 is then hooked to TV via componet 480p.

    Not networked at this time.

    AT-9 through WB68, then through BBCs via dual runs of RG6 installed about 6 years ago.

    HR21 is connected via component to Samsung DLP, Native Off, output fixed at 1080i. Audio is digital optical to Yamaha A/V receiver.

    Networked via Buffalo 4-port wireless ethernet bridge to home LAN, running through Apple Airport Extreme n Base Station wireless router to Com-crap cable internet (nominally 6 mbps downstream, 1.5 mbps upstream).
