I've looked through a number of threads on the DirecTivo. I haven't found any comparison reviews of the receivers that are out there, though I'm sure I must not be looking hard enough. Who has DirecTivo? What box do you have? How fast is the menu? I've gone to ABC Warehouse, and Radio Shack in my neighborhood. They won't sell DirecTV equipment anymore because Pegasus controls the area I am in and they don't get a kickback. Neither Circuit City nor Best Buy currently have any DirecTIVO equipment. Both gave me vague "we are supposed to be getting them in" answers. Aside from the fact I can't find one, where can I try before I buy???? I find it amazing that none of these retailers has demo equipment. I made the mistake of purchasing a newer RCA receiver to get the digital outs. I was appalled when I got it home and realized the menu moves at a snails pace. Thompson sent me a new unit with the same "feature". I asked for an old unit at a loss as a swap and they refused! How is one supposed to "shop" for these receivers???? Thanks for your thoughts.
