Does anyone have any experience with the Hughes HD satellite receiver? I have heard that some of the HD receivers are noisy (like the Panasonic) since the processor gets so hot and the fan needs to stay on to keep the unit cool. I would like to pickup one of the Hughes receivers, but not if it is noisy.


Thanks.

It has no fan at all. Silent. But it does run a little warm so it needs to be placed on top. I would say nothing can be placed above it.

Carbo,


I have read a few of the posts concerning HD receivers; do the software upgrades potentially take care of the heat? How about the Hughes compared to the others? Is the menuing slow?


Thanks for the response.
