HDTV, hardly. It's only a DVB-S tuner, not DVB-S2. The only 'HD' it might work with is SBS HD

I just want another tuner for media center that can get stratos since it has the odd useful thing on. Dont want to get it if its a piece of crap. Being that dvb-s is such an old standard I would expect them to have it sorted but who knows with some things eh...

Got $30 to lose! but still, will put the order in shortly.

Learned from last time to just order everything on DX one at a time, no reason to combine. Just delays it.

ok have one on the way to me.

looking around ended up ordering some other stuff from them too. Will soon find out if other nokia remotes work on the free slingshot phone or not, since the lack of media keys on it is REALLY annoying when using it as a MP3 player.
