Several forum members, including myself, have this combination. I would suggest a search in this and the HDTV Software forums. There are numerous comments about them (use just "HDD200" as the search text). Also, please visit the 4DTV Forum for many details. In short, it will be a very icy day near where I live before anyone will be able to pry these from my frozen dead hands http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

I am using the HDD-200 with both a 4DTV (through a 12 foot C/Ku dish) and a Star Choice receiver (through a 39 inch fixed dish) for HD at the moment feeding a Mits 65905 Diamond Series set. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have if you want to send a private email. Overall, I am extremely happy with the HDD-200. I bought one of the early units (so I unfortunately paid a hefty price), and my only complaint was that it would not work well with the embedded synch YPrPb inputs. I found the brightness and/or color intensities would vary at random times, which was annoying. I connected the additional HV (using the GRBHV connection) inputs and things seemed to settle down and work just fine. Other than that, I am very happy with the unit, and wouldn't give up mine either. I have heard that this early problem may have been corrected on later units although I do not know that for sure. The unit works equally well with either the 4DTV or the Star Choice Navigo 401 receiver as well.

JMartinko, The HDD-200 is HDTV equipment so why not post questions and answers on this forum so that everyone interested could benefit (myself included) http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif ?
