Was at Walmart today and picked up 2 USDigital STBs on sale for $169 each.
They do a credible job of dtv reception - no analog. Before Christmas these
receivers were selling for $222. In November I bought one there and paid
$299.

Subject: [opendtv] Interesting ATSC receiver for $189 regular price

Digitalstream HD 1150

Intyriguing, and at a regular price of only $189. Not bad. This is the
lowest regular price I've seen so far. Although last holiday season, I did
see prices as low as $199, so the downward movement wasn't as much as I had
predicted.

This box has both NTSC and ATSC reception, and it's also from Korea, which
promises well.

(Note that Adobe Acrobat will ask you if you want to install Korean fonts.
Say yes, or you won't get the document.)

I noticed that the on-screen menu looks very similar, although not
identical, to the one from my Accurian, which perhaps means it's also a
Humax box. (Or maybe not, I don't know if there's some sort of standard GUI
used by multiple vendors.) All the setup steps and options seem identical to
the Accurian, with the addition of a "fine tune" function for NTSC
reception.

Not sure whether any stores carry this, it seems readily available on the
web, at www.onecall.com. A positive sign.

Wouldn't it be nice to know what's in it?
