Just to show how much DTV employees know, I was told early 2007 was the goal.

So basically, nobody knows.

And wasnt it introduced at the CES show in Jan. '05 ?

I've been told this fall, and also 1st of next year and before that it was the end of the 2nd quarter.

I just hope it's not filled with bugs when it does get here.....

By the time it comes out, they'll probably tell you that you will need a new 10 lnb dish.

Q2 2006 was a delayed but rather firmly targeted date to release the new HD DVR. I just read the above and like all of you, am amazed at the delays in the release of this new reciever. I use the HD TIVO unit and my OTA HD is great except for CBS, which is too far away to get a consistent signal - it actually comes in when it is cloudy out and not when it is clear - called tropospheric induction, I believe. Reverse logic to me. Anyway, I suspect we are going to see a unit with a lot of bugs upon initial release. Too bad we will all have to wait so long.

One more thought on this. I just read a summary of a May conference call concerning earnings for investors in DTV. Their execs emphasized they are looking to a roll out of the HD DVR "this summer".

FYI - for what it is worth.

Maybe , maybe not, hopefully part of the delay is to work the bugs out BEFORE hand... If not, they will need to make quick changes to rectify the situation.

tropospheric ducting, but very close, A for effort

I'm willing to be a beta-tester. I don't know how much longer I can wait for this unit!
