You don't see as many post anymore about the HD-100. Because they stopped shipping them? No new upset customers. However, here is where I am ending up. Since finding out what was causing the drop outs and watching how I surf between Directv and OTA Digital, I really have not had any problems. It looks like CBS can fix the audio/video delays and may get Sony off the hook. Directv should be able to down load a permanant fix on the drop out and Guide issues. Like some others have said, the HD-100 was/is just going through growing pains. Now, I am glad I didn't send the box back like some others did. All in all it is a great box with features the others just don't give you. Lastly, but the most important to me is the picture quality, it is excellent. Oh yeh, my fan is not loud. Don't know why. My wife who is very critical about unwanted sounds (she can hear me talking about her 1/4 mile away)says she does not notice the fan at all. However we are not in that room much when not watching a program.
