    (Name the movie.) :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Edit: Apparently my humor wasn't in as good taste as I thought. So my bad, and my cleanup. Apologies, it truly was meant in the spirit of a very young person wishing someone good.

    I have left the replies of people who guessed correctly.

    Thanks for understanding,
    Tom

    Since no one but Mod could post some info about the H24-xxx, then closing the thread will serve well everyone here.

    As you can see from the edits, I said something that to me is a bit of humor. I have been told it was not always seen that way, so I have removed my bad. My intentions were to inject a bit of humor.

    So apologies to anyone who felt I was inappropriate.

    Thank you for understanding,
    Tom

    I think some just got over excited. I for one would love to see another reciever option. Thanks for posting on it. I look forward to learning more.

    Talk about a slow news day. Over 5,000 views for just the hint of a new receiver. Guess we are all eager to see what's coming up for 2010. Looking forward to Stilen's update. I'm curious to see if the upcoming platform has a head start on DLNA improvements.

    Tom ( as you're the official medium/mediator :) ) - how much money paid by an owner for that receiver ?

    After soberly reviewing this post, and reading a lot of moderator comments, with suggestion for apologies, etc, I've decided to come back on this with the following to say.

    It is extremely awkward that any single poster, new or old, would receive a DirecTV receiver not yet publicly released. As far as I am aware, and I wish not to speak for the crowd on this, so while I'm not phrasing it this way, put it into a question form in your mind... Back to what I was saying, as far as I am aware, no ones contacts at DirecTV (high or low) have been able to verify a privately released H24, let alone a publicly released one. So anyone claiming to have no official connection with DirecTV (be it employment, or a sponsored or non-sponsored beta program) obtaining an (at this point) only imagined receiver, is cause to bring great deals of skepticism.

    I then come to wonder, if such a receiver has been publicly released, why wasn't DBSTalk somewhat made aware of it? Even if our members didn't do any testing on it (highly unlikely). Its extremely surprising that DirecTV would release a receiver and keep this forum in the dark about it, with our "special" relationship.
    Furthermore, if this unit does so exist, does this public announcement of its existence hereby release anyones confidentiality agreement that may be part of our group and testing this piece of hardware? Or are they still bound to these terms?
    And, if one of our members was in fact testing this or a similar unit, why would they still be held to confidentiality terms when DirecTV has 'leaked' or officially/unofficially released the product!?

    Prove me wrong ;)


    Welcome to my brainfarting. I hope you all enjoyed :). Not picking on the OP, even if they tend to ask a lot of questions, although while questions are the keys to answers I might recommend reading current topics on the product before asking questions... Oncemore, no picking on the op. (I ask questions that seem out of place too, all the time as a matter of fact!).
    Nor was I picking on our new divulger of information. And while I might not agree with their claims, there is no reason to bash them as a person. (and I don't believe I did, however, I will be going back through the rests of my posts in this thread, if there are any, and will apologize if I do find any which were demeaning to either poster).

    Thanks for keeping the thread open guys... And no matter how this fiasco turns out.... Happy Holidays? :)

    You really ought to try a sports forum if you enjoyed this thread. The folks that post on the sports forums are so vicious it's hard to believe. And just about anything is allowed. I also belong to a science forum and you ought to see the language on that. Freedom of speech doesn't really mean you can say anything you want to anyone at anytime. It means that you have the right to express an opinion.

    Well... the First Amendment and freedom of speech don't apply to a privately owned website. Owners can limit and restrict content as they see fit to build the tone and type of website they want.

    We all have freedom of speech--if you own your website. We don't have freedom of speech on DBStalk--we's gots rules. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom
