    Default As a side note:

    Interestingly, I was Geraldton during the week so decided to look around for a HD recorder. I visited three retailers seeking their advise on what to buy, and, I was going to buy, this was not just a inquiry. The criteria was:

    1- Humax 4010z - AV out
    2- VAST UEC - HDMI out
    3- Samsung series 5 LED TV - 1 AV in - 4 HDMI in
    4- Sell me a HD recorder to do the job

    Not one of the sales people had a clue what I was talking about. VAST? Aurora? not a clue. All they could point to was terrestrial HD recorders with twin tuners. I guess what is glaring here is a Regional Hub such as Gero is surrounded by area that will be VAST specific. The mid west, murchison, gascoyne will all be VAST designated when it comes on line. Not one retailer had any idea of their pending market for satellite. Subsequently I left Gero with my money in my pocket and all three retailers without a sale.

    The retailers here have absolutely no idea what is going on. Totally clueless!
    That's why I do my research elsewhere them tell them what I want. If the price isn't right, I go elsewhere.

    The retail/service mob I work for, knows about VAST because I tell them.

    Don't worry, they try that already. Amazing how much crap they can spin.
