    I have a H-23 on the shelf in my bedroom closet. It controls the TV just the other side of the wall. I leave a lot of air around it for heat to vent but I do store my slippers on top of it. When I take my slippers down from the shelf, they are toasty. I love the comfy feeling they give me when I first put them on.

    Thank you, DirecTV, for my warm slippers.

    Nice! :lol:

    DirecTV should include this option in the product specification.

    Somebody on this board will find a way to complain about this. :sure:

    "Directv should provide free slippers to every customer...how can they treat their customers that way..."

    Excellent creative use of an STB. We should consider having a contest to see who has the most creative use of an STB (undocumented feature, so to speak). :) Thanks Carl, you made me smile!

    Ok, I have a personal admittance here.
    My bedroom unit, HR20-700 #2 sits on my wooden drawer chest directly above my underwear drawer.
    I get warm undies each morning no matter the outside temps. The drawer stays at at least 85deg or better with the box over it. And I have a Taurgus on it already.
    It has been the main roadblock in my moving this unit into the closet with the rest of the equipment.
    I enjoy warmed underwear, who wouldn't?

    Ha-ha! I'm not the only one!

    And I just put my slippers on first thing this morning. Even though the receiver has been off all night, they're nice and warm.

    Hell, yes. Leather UGGs I got years ago, really a moccasin with cushy innards and a hard sole. They no longer make them and these are wearing out. I'll find a moccasin substitute but nothing has popped up that I like when I've looked before.

    I have found Acorn slippers to be very good.
