Mark,

Dish's rationale for not putting in real discrete codes for the HD/SD modes makes no sense. They claim it's because their remote doesn't have buttons for both codes yet that's exactly the same situation with the discrete power codes (i.e. there aren't separate on and off buttons for them on their remote but they still added them to the receiver). To the best of my knowledge very few remotes include two buttons for power on and power off modes or for any other similar mode which can be toggled from one state to another. Don't discrete codes exist almost exclusively for those of us with Pronto style remotes who wish to improve on the functionality of a components original remote? I'm sure you would agree that real discrete codes for the HD/SD modes would be preferable and likely more reliable.

Bob
