    Nice work Scott! Great write up!

    I'll be curious to see how well these units perform once they're out in the wild. From the First Look, it appears it's pretty decent in a variety of situations.

    Time will tell.

    Kudos to Scott and the test team for another great "First Look". Looks like a very cool product for those with limited connectivity options.

    So...how do I go about ordering one from Directv? I heard they are available in test markets today (since st louis was an hr44 test market I am supposing it is again with C41W).

    I don't believe they can be ordered yet. I was told it was not at all available.

    Anyone know the cost? I suppose the C41W is going to be ~100 bucks...but how much for the Directv Wireless Video Bridge?

    Great job on the first look.

    It looks like the WVB needs one coax feed from the SWM. If I've got a SWM 16, does it have to come off on the same leg as the Genie?
