This receiver is a good product, easy to set up and good picture. It is not Mpeg4 which is not good for me. In my area you have to have Mpeg4 equipment in order to get the network channels, so on this receiver I do not get my locals. The other problem I don't like is even though you buy the receiver Directv still owns it, it is that way with all Directv receivers you pay money and buy them and Directv still owns them. If you ever cancell service you have to send the receivers back to Directv.
