I see lots of low stars on this receiver, but I think it's a great receiver, from a standpoint of HD receivers. Anytime you activate a new receiver on Directv, it does enter you into a 2 year committment, but if it's such a big deal, you can change your programming and go with a lower priced package. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Dish Network requires an 18 month committment, so an extra 6 months means nothing to me. The big difference is in this technology versus cable. I used to have cable, but had trouble getting HD channels because our cable was so old (and I live in a good neighborhood). So I made the switch to Directv and the difference in picture quality is huge. Plus, as many football fans who subscribe to cable are painfully finding out tonight, NFL Network is only available through DBS providers. If you own a flat panel HD TV and subscribe to Directv, this receiver is a must (outputs at the component, HDMI and optical level). Components are good enough, as Directv...
If you're thinking of upgrading your current DirecTV HD receiver to the H20, beware! Apparently, as I just learned, when you buy one of these, even if it's not from DirecTV directly (say at Best Buy, CompUSA, Amazon, etc), even if you hook it up yourself, you're entering into a new two-year agreement.
That's right! I bought this receiver back in January 2006 because my previous one (also HD) I'd had for about 4 years up and died. I didn't get the HD DVR because 3 people I talked to at DirecTV said I needed a phone line for the DVR to work. I haven't owned a land line in about 5 years, so the DirecTV HD DVR was out of the question.
Well here it is in April and I've decided to go with Dish. Dish has an HD DVR that doesn't need a phone line, plus they have at least twice the number of HD channels as DirecTV.
When I called DirecTV to cancel my account, they said I owed an "early cancellation fee" of $262! What?! I explained that no, I've been a...
I don't know about the DVR model, but you really have no other choice than to go with this receiver if you just want HD via DirecTV. I personally hate it that there are no choices when it comes to getting satellite receivers. The features on this receiver are rather ordinary. I can live with that, but what drives me crazy is the lag when changing channels. It's especially slow when going from a channel at 480p to one at 1080i. Most people probably aren't going to be bothered by this. As for the interface, it's rather standard fare. You have autotuning so that the system automatically goes to a program that you select. There's the usual interactive guide, and the ability to program favorite channels. But there's no killer app. Perhaps there isn't on any other service either. It just would be nice if there were some competition. Instead of each service competing, competition with the receivers would get us something different and perhaps faster.
