    I'll have my Hughes e86 DirecTV/OTA HDTV receiver up for sale soon. I'm upgrading to a new box & I'll give this one up as soon as I receive that one (should be in 2-3 weeks).

    Read specs here.
    I haven't figured out what price to ask. The unit is only a month young & in mint condition. Probably $415 + shipping. E-mail me if you're interested. Thanks.

    You guys may want to wait a while because most likely DirecTV will have to switch to 8PSK modulation like Dish has done but DirecTV receivers are NOT upgradeable like the Dish 6000 (has plugin upgrade modules) and you will need a new receiver to be able to receive 8PSK modulated HD channels.

    8PSK is a new modulation scheme that allow the Satellite provider to use half as much transponder space with HD channels then normally thus letting them broadcast twice as many HD channels then they normally would be able to without any loss of quality. And DirecTV does not have much space left as of now for anything and would need to switch to 8PSK to allow for more HD channels.
