Its predecessor, the DTV1080, didn't require a subscription to DirecTV, and I've seen nothing that would suggest the 520 has that requirement attached. However, some of the best quality HD, IMHO, is from HDNet. I have mine on order.

Has anyone considered the HDV420? Appears to be a non-DirectTV STB due out at the same time. Copperbox.com has it listed on preorder at $399.97. Has native output and DVI.

From all I have read I did not see anything about DVI on the HDV420. I believe copperbox is pulling your leg.
