Ummm.. Why would there be a contract required? This is for OTA, right, not satellite? Am I missing something?


Plus it's a scratch and dent. Is this really a super deal? Basically 20% off list.

Sorry, I just realized it does do Directv as well. But do these multi-stbs usually require contracts? I mean, what if I want one just to watch OTA?

you can use this to watch OTA without even contacting directtv...


no contract required is crutchfield doesnt care if you signup with direct-tv through them... they just sell the hardware...... you get the box, call direct-tv yourself..... and make sure you tell them its an HDTV box, or they wont activate the hdtv channels...

I had one of these boxes from crutchfield.


I was ok with the slowness, but the audio stuttering was horrible. the only way you could get rid of the stuttering was if you put it in letterbox mode.


so, unless you want to send the box in for repair right when you get it...

no 720P???


looks like panasonic is moving away from 720p (as their hdtv sets also dropped that format earlier this year)

For those on the fence with the purchase of the Panasonic TU-HDS20,

DO it NOW!

I'm sure the used price for this stb will soon rise with this 8.10 update!!
