1. I like the Hughes Platinum HD because of its price and compatability. (Do a search)

2. www.**************.com (do a search)

3. The new Zenith STB is suppose to be the next great box, but has been delayed numerous times. (do a search)


Also try a search. You can easily find debates on all the best models.

If E* you only have a choice of the model 6000 and youll need an 18" dish for 61.5 or 148. As for D* youll need a DirectTV Plus dish for 119. I dont know of any upcoming E* HD IRDs.

Correct, as Steve stated above, you will need another 18" dish pointing at either the 61.5 or the 148 satellite to get HD programming (and also international channels as well).
