    In many threads here I have posted that the XBR-2 Sony HD rptvs have built in DirecTV-OTA HD tuners.
    I was wrong. They do have OTA digital tuners, but not DirecTV receivers.
    I sincerely apologize for spreading misinformation.

    I prefer not to push the subwoofers until they're properly run in.

    I saw a Proscan 40" that has the DirectTV tuner built in. It is very hush hush here in Canada though as DirectTV is not available here.
    Does anyone know if this is still accessible in Canada?

    really? I thought that I read somewhere that it was not available in Canada? I guess I was mistaken, thanks.
