I am trying to decide which STB to go with, and have researched the many topics on this forum. However, many are from months ago. I was wondering if anything has changed, i.e., has the HD100's fan gotten quieter, the panny's fan quieter and menu faster, the RCA's flaw of seeming to get "fried" frequently or break after an update, etc. What is the best choice today given the current state of the technology. And what does anyone know about next-gen stb's??? Thanks!!
