Bert,

Bob had 5th gen LG boxes, using the same LG block that is in the DirecTV boxes. Bob's problem was that those "5th generation" chips didn't work nearly as well as the prototype "Cold Fusion" 5th generation box that got both Mark Schubin and Sinclair so darned excited two years ago.

Don't you recall the summer long parade of Korean manufacturers that Bob kept us dutifully informed about?

No problem. You just have to make the right deal. You can go ask DirecTV
how they managed, because they sell proper LG 5th gen STBs, even though
LG refused to sell us OTA users a non-DBS version of that same box. It's
all about $, Bob. You wave the right number of crisp bills and you'll
get your box.
