awful thing

 

Consumer review by:

Good picture, but what's with the cooling fan??!!

 

Good picture quality, lots of features, but you better use it in a sound proof component cabinet

THE COOLING FAN IS SO LOUD THAT IT IS UNUSABLE IN A BEDROOM!! The fan never turns off, even when the unit is turned off, unless you unplug the machine. Truly unbelievable, ignorant, arrogant engineering design. Also slow to acquire the program guide. Cha

Product Specifications

The DST3100 second-generation DIRECTV High-Definition Receiver incorporates DVI (Digital Visual Interface) technology for consistent high-quality reception of High-Definition DIRECTV programming, along with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Copy Protection) to ensure the security of copyrighted high-definition programming. To maximize the viewing experience from both digital and analog sources and with any type of display device, Toshiba's DST3100 features the versatility of several output resolution modes. And with its simultaneous output and multi-TV control capability, the DST3100 offers a multi-room viewing solution. The stylish, sleek silver cabinet design complements the cosmetics of Toshiba's HDTV-Compatible TV line and makes it the perfect addition to a home theater system. The DST3100 is designed to ensure reception and optimize the image quality of all digital video signals, utilizing the full resolution capabilities of the advanced display devices now emerging in the marketplace. It features built-in NTSC and ATSC reception, along with multiple output resolution modes (480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i) that can be selected via the unit's remote. With its 720p resolution output capability, the DST3100 provides the highest quality native 720p digital video signal to high-performance fixed pixel display devices, such as Toshiba's new widescreen plasma display panels. Further enhancing user flexibility and utility, the DST3100 features a unique Hybrid Mode that will automatically convert incoming digital signal to either 480p or 1080i output resolution, ensuring maximum image quality with the majority of HDTV-Compatible TVs that support both 480p and 1080i. To help consumers create a powerful HDTV home theater experience, the DST3100 includes an optical digital audio output jack (Toslink) for Dolby Digital multichannel sound, ColorStream HD component video output, S-Video output and two sets of A/V composite video output jacks. The result is full connectivity in the home. Thanks to its simultaneous HD/SD output capability, the DST3100 can be connected to multiple TV sets in the house. While the DVI/HDCP output terminal delivers uncompressed digital video signals, the ColorStream output delivers high-quality Y/Pb/Pr signals and the S-Video jack provides an analog signal simultaneously. Adding to the convenience of multi-room operation, the newly designed remote control incorporates both IR (infrared) and RF (radio frequency) capabilities and supports two separate TV remote codes. This allows a viewer in an upstairs bedroom to control the digital satellite receiver even when it is placed on top of a living room or home theater TV. Total user convenience and the flexibility of additional user options are integral to the advanced design of the DST3100. As soon as it is taken out of the box and turned on, the installation menu appears on screen, guiding viewers through the setup process specific for their home theater environment. A sophisticated icon-based GUI (graphical user interface) provides easier navigation of functions and features than ever before. Users even have the flexibility of customizing their on-screen menu and operating system with up to four separate settings. Among the functions viewers can customize are Color Scheme for the on-screen menu, Favorite Channels, Audio Language and Parental Rating Restrictions. Channel-surfing could not be easier or more efficient, thanks to the user-friendly ADVANCED PROGRAM GUIDE that integrates programming information and provides a single, seamless listing of all available TV programming, including DIRECTV programming, terrestrial and cable broadcasts. Furthermore, a built-in search engine allows viewers to locate desired programs simply by entering a title, category, actor's name or key word.
