Hughes HIRD-E11 "Silver Series" Basic DIRECTV Satellite Receiver

The Hughes HIRD-E11 DirecTV receiver is about as basic as you can get. It is extremely limited with only a 36-hour program guide and it is very difficult for anyone who wants to record a number of different series every week. You must remember to set...

Works as advertise. However, with the standard DishPRO dish, a second cable must be run from the dish to this box (and then a cable to the second TV). The picture on the second TV is not the greatest. I may be able to clean up the cabling after the...

Viewsat Ultra Satellite TV Receiver Version 2.0

I bought this box about a year ago and it was really good but GUI is simplistic but functional. It lacks PVR support which is found in many boxes nowadays. I suggest getting the Conaxsat Duo. Better unit in my book and cheaper too and which is surprise...

Metronic 441816

Do not buy this unless you are in an area with very good reception. It is a very low sensitivity receiver. I had to bin mine and buy the dearer, but much more sensitive and better featured Metronic Eco Zapbox.

Dish Network VIP 222k

Every night the box goes into standy mode and you must physically turn on the box if you want to watch tv. This means you can't TIVO any shows while on vacation. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

Samsung Electronics Samsung YA-CD200 NeXus Home Docking Kit

I pulled the connector off my Nexus antenna pulling it through a hole in the wall. I couldn't find just the connector at all. Radio Shack had the antenna alone for $50. I paid $30 for this whole kit. Good to have the spare parts.

Echostar T-101 FTA

Originally, a good product. Since the much publicised NTI split however, this box is now one of those displaying channels such as BBC 1 out of the correct order (800 in this case). So you end up with an odd channel list and no way or sorting it. BBC1,...

Sirius ST5TK1 Starmate 5 Dock & Play Radio for Sirius Satellite Radio

This is a great choice if you're a new Sirius subscriber. The radio with a big screen/LCD type look is a waste of money if you live up north where the cold weather can cause the screen to freeze. The "pause" capability is exactly like a DVR/Tivo in...
