Found this on Google News, wait till you read this. And I even like D* for the most part. It was on a site called Market-Day.net. Patriotic? Aren't the HR20s manufactured in Mexico, Earl? Or are they just built South of the Border? I guess it depends on your definition of manufactured.

Be sure to read until the end and check out what Mr. Davis does for a living. It's just too funny. I wonder if he's gotten any calls about the HR20. If so, he doesn't mention it.

Here's the link:

What Gives DIRECTV System an Edge?

What Gives DIRECTV System an Edge?

When choosing a satellite TV service people tend to ask, what gives DIRECTV System an edge? First of all, a DIRECTV System uses nationally manufactured hardware in a patriotic and business respective way.

The DIRECTV System is adaptable to different needs for different kinds of people throughout the US. The DIRECTV System delivers high-quality digital experience unlike any other satellite TV service in the country with the latest in hardware possibilities.

DIRECTV System Uses Nationally Manufactured Hardware

All directly related satellite system hardware for the home owner that is used in the DIRECTV System is all manufactured inside the United States of America.

The point of developing a DIRECTV System is to make the life of the homeowner more relaxed when changing to a new service, for better rates and when they are unsatisfied with other services.

A DIRECTV System also does this with the intention of focusing more on programming and services rather than hardware manufacturing and control. The important part of a DIRECTV System is the solution for those kinds of people who just don't have time to record their favorite shows, or get home in time to watch them live.

DIRECTV System Has DVR Technology

Of course, Satellite TV has a parabolic dish that captures digital transmissions from a satellite in geosynchronous orbit around the equator (what a mouth full). But what technology is superior in a DIRECTV System?

The DIRECTV System Dish was an innovating factor when it came out as it used a smaller frequency with better reception than larger dishes. The great thing about a DIRECTV System is that they are always on the cutting edge and innovating, that's why the DIRECTV System has DVR technology.

Linked to the IRD (integrated receiver/decoder) device that is used to translate channel frequencies for the television system, some DIRECTV System IRDs can translate up to three different channels at once.

When using a DVR however, the DIRECTV System can record up to two different channels simultaneously with a limit of up to 70 total hours of programming. Best of all, the DIRECTV System DVR technology can be reviewed at owner convenience when there is time, with the push of a button on the remote control.

DIRECTV System Delivers High-Quality Digital Experience

Also, the DIRECTV System delivers high-quality digital experience through HDTV. High quality means crystal clear image and sound, wide screen Movie Theater like accommodations and exiting new technologies the more and more this kind of technology becomes common place.

The DIRECTV System offers a better, clearer and more highly defined picture than traditional analog TV, 5 to 10 times clearer. The wide screen size is 16:9 compared to the traditional 4:3 used by analog broadcasting. The DIRECTV System also uses surround doubly sound for those with entertainment systems and want to feel the action around them.

The DIRECTV System like all developing entertainment technologies, in the end, means being prepared for the future of television. Some outstanding technological ideas have come and gone throughout our very lifetimes. Some might say that digital TV is the system of the future and will end the business of Video Rental once and for all within the next 25 years. In fact one Satellite Communications technician was quoted recently in response to the question about digital broadcasting and how long it would take to end Video Rental business, he said "about 25 years."

"The DIRECTV System is a telecommunications solution of the future."

Gary Davis is owner of http://www.dtv-satellite.com an authorized DIRECTV retailer, has over five years experience in the Satellite TV business and has written numerous articles on the subject.

Wow. Too much misinformation to handle right now!
Sounds like the script to one of those health class films from the 1950s. The tone is too much, too.

I guess he meant to imply that the HR20 is being manufactured by future Americans. Eventually they all end up here anyway, don't they? Just think, the next time you shop at WalMart you may not only be able to buy an HR20 but you may also meet the guy who built it.;)

Hmmmm - if a recording is a channel that is true. But I think the guy is confusing Dish with D*. Is Dish equipment US Manufactured?

Anyway, I won't be buying anything from him.

He does not specificallly identify the equipment he is talking about. The one sentence about how D* uses smaller dishes suggests that the article could have been written ten years ago. Could he be referring to DirecTivo equipment? Maybe, the article is not clear at all.

I do agree with all of the other replies. Nothing I saw motivates me to want to do business with this person.

"a smaller frequency" is actually referring to the shorter wavelength (associated with higher frequency) that DirecTV and Dish use compared to the older C band equipment. That is one of the main things in the post that makes me think it is based on rather old information.
