USB 3.0? e-sata is better and does not come with the high cpu load.
The hardware will be the same that DIRECTV is and/or will be using. We don't know if all the HR2x will run the new TiVo code or just select newer models.
But the entire software stack will be TiVo's configuration (with some drivers, modules, authentication bits from the manufacturers and NDS as required.)
So DIRECTV's kernel likely won't be present--aside from they both will use Linux as the kernel anyway.
Thanx for providing your insight, Tom. I'm relieved.
I hope you'll be able to provide (eventually?) a little more clarity on whether the hardware will be what DirecTV is using or will be using. Naturally, I hope it's the latter.
I'm sure I will be--but by then it will be likely obvious to all of us. (In other words, I might not have any advanced warning on the matter.)
Actually the best source might be from TiVo's investor conferences and SEC filings. DBStalk'ers have done a great job combing thru them for hints. Thanks gang!
Actually, that NDS part is sorta scary. Authentication bits from NDS, no problem. Drivers or other modules from NDS, eeek!
The modules from NDS are part of the authentication bits from NDS. Most of the drivers and modules I refer to are from the hardware and chip manufacturers. Modules that control the video and decoder chips for the middleware and OS. Generally small but very important code bits that make things work.
Thanks for alleviating the eeek factor, Tom.
Now here's a question that you (or anyone on this forum) might not be able to answer yet: Is TiVo Inc having any effect on the design of D*'s yet-to-come DVR boxes? Any input from TiVo engineers?
Get rid of that idiotic rotating blue ring. Really annoying!
but will all other Direct tv stuff be in there. Like all the red button stuff, mix channels, MRV, VOD, all the direct tv network stuff.
really - got some proof on this statement - until it hits the streets no matter what it is "waiting for" it is blue smoke and mirrors
Just shut it off you it bothers you.
And each and every public statement from either company mentions the words "new box" or "new DVR" somewhere. I have no doubt that the box will be something that can either run DirecTV software or TiVO software. I am not conviced in any way that the TiVo software will run on anything that is currently available to DirecTV regular customers, like the current HR20-23 series.
And thus the HR3x series will be launched.
(Just my hunch)
I was thinking that earlier when i posted the link to the original picture... We can dream, right?
of course according to Ben those were empty boxes.
This is true... but so are most production-ready concept cars
Post some specs (just make stuff up).
Here's the specs I got from the brother-in-law of the third cousin of the guy at the 7-11 three blocks down from my cousin's aunt thrice removed:
1.5 TB Hard Drive
Intel Core i7 Extreme @ 3.33 GHz
2 GB RAM
ATI Radeon HD 4200 Graphics (1 GB dedicated RAM)
HDMI 1.4 support
Gigabit Ehthernet w/ Passthrough
RF backlit remote w/ VoiceCommand™
TiVo Software 10 (Interface design by Apple)
iPod dock with support for full HD video passthrough
MultiRoom Streaming to Thin Clients for TVs and PCs
Support for SWM-16
Place Shift technology to watch your DVR on the go from your iPod, iPhone, Blackberry, or any internet connected computer
It makes toast.
