So that clears that up.
Great First Look! I'm happy to report that it looks PERFECT on the iPad with GoodReader. iBooks gave an format error but it still opened and looks the same.
Good job on the First Look, folks. Looks like a nice little box for the intended applications.
That is small - at first glance I thought the H25 was sitting on top of a HR24 before I read the caption.
That external power brick has to go... I realize they were trying to keep the size down, but come on. And a phone line port, really....
Nice job, and since the Shadow know, now we do too. Unfortunately I am a all DVR customer and this receiver doesn't really interest me but for those who have SWM with a whole home setup it is a great item coming down the pipe! Hope folks can get these in the next quarter.
I see it as BCM740x. Who was that photographer ?:eek2:
Very nice and thanks. Too bad it wouldn't work for me as there is no Optical out. Only an RCA digital out.
There isn't one, it has DECA built in, so in that setup, it wouldn't need one. Maybe this is one reason it was highly recommended to go the supported route as opposed to ethernet for MRV etc. Just a theory.
Looks good. Great report as usual, guys.
:shrug: Beats me, but I bet there are 30 different ways to look at it.
The H24 doesn't have an optical output either. S/PDIF to TOSLINK adapters are available, however.
This looks like it will fill a specific need, which I don't have. I was expecting it to possibly be the model which would enable a cost-effective MPEG4 transition for SD customers, but it would need a composite output for that.
I see ... which way you took it ...
Yup, for better or worse, it's looking like no more optical on any new DIRECTV gear. For those that still need optical, an adapter is really the only way to go.
Having looked at Broadcom's catalog, there are several chips that might fit the bill.
If they had wanted you to know, they would have posted better pics. :lol:
Oh, BTW, monoprice sells such an adapter for something like $7.
wondering why anyone has issue with the brick. serious question. is that problem? just curious.
seems fine to me, and it takes heat out of the box.
My only thought would be with wall mount systems where the box is mounted on the wall behind the TV - I did this with an H24 at my parent's house. You'd have to deal with the brick instead of just tying up loose wires.
