Well, for the umpteenth time, it was said that the LG receiver was  
their 4200 with the 4th gen chip replaced with a 5th gen chip.  They  
are apparently of the exact same size and pinout.  So why not get  
your butt in gear, by a 4200, get someone with the appropriate  
equipment, and replace the chip?  Worse case is it'll blow up and  
you're out $300.  Best case is you have your own LG 5th gen prototype  
for others to pick apart and figure out why it works so well.
