Excuse my late entry into this conversation. This looks like the most thorough thread on this topic, and I'm considering ordering DirecTV after a recent price hike from Comcast and continued declining picture quality.
Does anyone know what receiver DirecTV is shipping when you order via their web site? BellSouth gives a discount if you order and have direct billing, but I don't want to end up with a D10-200 or -300 I can't use. (I have two 5504s).
Or, has there been any resolution on the -200 and -300 receivers? Do they work now?
Thanks for your help.
