    I'm the Bagboy but I will do what I can specifically for Directv as FanBoy tends to cover the whole CES Event where I tend to Zoom in on Directv because that is what affects me. :D

    Thanks Rich.

    Of specific interest (to me at least):
    • Any reference to RVU capability from a mobile device such as an iPhone/iPad, or gaming system such as the PS3, especially outside the home.
    • Any hint of streaming (non RVU) outside the home for DVR recordings. Thinking the Anywhere recent references might be channel streaming outside the home.
    • Anything related to possibly being able to access DVR specific info (space, playlist, todo list, ...) from a mobile app outside the home. Similar to the FiOS app.
    • Any future receiver gossip (HR2x, HR3x, C3x) or nomad enhancements.
    • Any references to MOCA 2.0 for DirecTV, the Entropic CEO has only referenced FiOS interest in 2.0.

    I'm sure I'll think of some other stuff.

    No need for any glossy coverage, just any tidbits of info would be interesting for those here without the opportunity to attend.

    Thanks Rich and any other newbies attending for the first time.

    I printed out your post as a reminder of the details.

    We'll see what we can learn along those lines.
    The CES experience is something everyone should do at least once...if they can make it work.

    [Not to worry...they'll be a real "reporter/photographer" doing traditional DBSTalk onsite reports (with photos) as always - and he even knows how to use spell-check and everything...] :D :lol:

    But seriously - for all those onsite joining in this year - a few final thoughts:

    1) Don't forget to pack good walking shoes (I've almost forgotten them once myself in the past). Dress for CES is stated to be "business casual".

    2) Dress for the weather - Las Vegas in January can vary alot - it could be warm or cold or both at times - check the weather forecast before leaving so you can pack accordingly. Sweaters are not a bad idea (unless you get your fashion tips from Richierich :lol:).

    3) We have a few folks onsite that we hope to meet with at CES itself (they have any mobile phone numbers already). Once on the ground - we'll connect up. ;)

    4) It's recommended for those folks confirmed to join us at the DBSTalker dinner Thursday 1/12 at 7:00pm (Maggiano's at Fashion Show Mall at the north end)...show up at least 10-15 minutes early.

    5) Don't forget your 2 forms of ID and CES badge documentation (if you have it in advance like many do).

    6) For first-timers - prepare to be amazed. For veterans - enjoy CES yet again.

    CES starts in 10 days...and several of us arriving in 11 days.

    Have fun - see you there!

    I am just responding to what Sixto wanted along with Mr. P. Smith which shouldn't take that much to accomplish as Sixto stated that he just wanted info and Not a First Look Report type of reporting, just the Facts and Info.

    Here are Sixto's Comments that I am responding to. "Lots of folks can provide an overview, or CES-wide coverage, but it would be great if someone can sniff out every booth with any DirecTV specific info and post, maybe even with some photos later as time permits, without any non-DirecTV distraction.

    Enter, visit Broadcom, Entropic, Jethead, someplace "new" ... post ...

    Maybe even a new guy/gal, without any special privileges, who can post any and all DirecTV specific gossip ...


    So I will take a few minutes as we break for lunch to Post a few comments on the DBSTALK.COM Website for those who want to know about such info but don't want to wait for the Official DBSTALK.COM Report to come out which can take a week or so."

    Your efforts with that are much appreciated.

    Also, a Back Pack is a Great Way of carrying a lot of stuff such as a Camera, Phone, Batteries, Peanuts & Snacks plus a place to put a lot of Literature that you will accumulate at each Booth.

    I'm planning on bringing Candy, my 23 year old executive "assistant". Candy is born for such tasks and is easy on the eyes. She even does shorthand!

    Plus my Mom would roll over in her grave if she thought I might chew gum in public....

    :D

    Quick question for the veterans here... Regarding Cameras, what would one suggest? I have my Canon Rebel T3 DSLR, or my Nikon S6100 point-and-shoot. I'll bring both regardless (driving affords me such luxuries), but what would you suggest for the show floor?
