This is the latest talking point that DTV CSR's have in their scripting:

Future DIRECTV Equipment

DIRECTV product development is always working on new equipment that will enhance our customers’ viewing experience. Feel free to share this information with customers. Explain that more details will be available closer to product launch.

Items Announced in January 2006

Customers can transfer content from their DIRECTV Plus DVR to a variety of portable media players.
Supporting DIRECTV-specific audio and video formats, this service will enable customers to connect a DIRECTV-compatible portable media player directly to DIRECTV receivers.
DIRECTV 2Go devices will display DIRECTV content in a separate menu area with a DIRECTV-branded user interface.
Expected availability: 2006.

For the true home theater enthusiast, this equipment combines the latest HD and DVR technologies, and differs from all other DIRECTV products as it is designed to mount in a 19-inch rack, which is common in the home theater, custom-installation market.
New features include front-panel HD LCD display, front-panel transport controls, and additional control ports on the front and back.
Expected availability: End of 2006.

The new HR20 receiver brings together the new DIRECTV Plus DVR and DIRECTV HD Receiver.
Record one HD program while watching another and record two different shows at the same time, while watching a pre-recorded program.
Pause and rewind live HD TV up to 90 minutes, use instant replay and watch in slow motion.
Record more than 30 hours of DIRECTV HD programming delivered in MPEG-2, up to 50 hours of DIRECTV HD programming delivered in MPEG-4, or up to 200 hours of standard-definition programming.
This MPEG-4 compatible equipment will be the first DIRECTV HD receiver with interactive capabilities.
Expected availability: Late summer 2006.

DIRECTV LCD Televisions
New series of LCD TV screens integrated with a DIRECTV receiver, eliminating the clutter of separate components.
10 watts of stereo audio (built-in speakers), three-day advanced program guide and bilingual user interface (English/Spanish).
10-inch and 20-inch LCD TVs - became available April 2006.
More sizes - date is TBD.
