    Just some more info as to who will get them.

    This may change, but as of right now the criteria for getting a SWM LNB is

    1. Must be a new install
    2. The Install must be at least 5, up to 8 tuners
    3. Customer must have HD programming on the work order

    otherwise the standard slimline will be installed...

    Yes- the slimline 3 will come in both flavors, SWM & non SWM

    So there you go. No info yet as to if they will or how much it will cost to upgrade you to a SWM LNB from a regular one.

    Thanks RobertE, this seems like the senseable approach to me. :)

    Hopefully when the go on sale on the open market, the price will be reasonable.

    I can see it having a real value at $199 for an upgrade, A regular swm is close to the $300 price point.

    The last I heard, for the First Look anyway, is there were a few areas that DirecTV wanted edited. Stuart is working it and once it is done he said he'd send me the final release copy.

    I think the SWM ODU LNB is being installed in select markets though.

    I wonder if this is the longest confidential CE trial? First round started in late January. Next week will be four months. Did we set a record?

    HR21-100 was barely 2.5 months. I'm thinking that was one of the shortest.

    Ok, I'll ask...

    Is it officially outed?

    Are we ready to release?

    Since I really don't know what, if any, agreements we have with Directv, do they get the final word on what we release?

    For the record, I believe that DirecTV should have a cut and the final word.

    I'm just unclear as to what our responsibilities are...realizing of course that I may not have a need know. ;)

    And yes, I believe we have responsibilities when it comes to field testing.
