I did what you are suggesting, and we will never go back. We save over $90 per month in subscription fees. The OTA picture looks better than what we were getting previously. We bought an OTA DVR,...

They gave me a credit on the card I used to pay for the 103. I probably sidestepped the 35 day wait because a) I didn't see that part, and b) I sent them an email directly. Anyway, a 10% credit for...

SACD sometimes sends multi-channel, sometimes only stereo

When playing a SACD that has multi-channels on my 103, I noticed that the display said 'type 5.0'. When I looked at my preamp (Anthem AVM 50), it said the input was left and right channels only. I...

OTA_jay,

I saw the reference to the 1 TB at Staples for $59. The WD My Passport Ultra 1.5 TB is going for $64.99. For five dollars more, it seemed like a better value.
