OK, I use this product for watching netflix on my TV. The quality is pretty good, depends on the DVD or Stream most of the time, but no worse than my non HD Dvd plays on my non HD tv and no worse than the picture on my laptop, taking into account that...

DGTEC DH-2000A

When HD began to break into the TV market, we were forced to buy one of these units with our new HD 1080p CRT TV as the tele didn't have a built in HD tuner. (Remember those days?). Well, that's when the problems began. As soon as we brought this unit...

2 Room DIRECTV Receiver

This was much better than the last non Tivo DTV DVR I tried. I tried the last one for 2 months before I had my TIVO repaired. I recorded last years Superbowl on DT HDDVR and on my old 2002 DTV Tivo HDVR2. I watched the game on the SD HDVR2 Tivo because...
