Hughes has a new HD IRD coming in the spring of 2003. It will replace

the HIRD-E86 and being a sixth generation ird, the model # should be

HIRD-F86.

The new features will include DVI, and add Picture-In-Guide, which the

Director Pack's already have.

Hughes was at Comdex. The have to sell of their remaining inventory

of the HIRD E86, 10000 to 15000 units. This will be a very impressive

unit with also a new front display. Not sure on the model # could be

F86 or G86. The letter stands for generation, the 8 means HD and the 6

means 6 LNB outputs. This will be the unit to wait for in April.

Also the holdup on the RCA DTC 200, possible goodbye from DTV, for

their deal making Dish's Ird's.
