    I just received the new Hughes Directv HD Box yesterday, and it gets installed tomorrow afternoon. I've heard this is nearly identical (internally) to the Sony HD300, which I almost bought. I was wondering if anyone has any feedback on the HTL-HD - good or bad. Thanks in advance!b

    It's made by LG, who also makes the HD-300 and another box under the LG name. The Hughes box is essentially the same but lacks a few minor features like an RF remote. The LG boxes are about the best around for local OTA reception.

    There's an entire forum over at AVS devoted to HD hardware, lotsa information there on this and the other available boxes.
