    Folks, The H24 First Look has been released. The HR24/combined First Look is not yet ready .. SO ..

    It is OK to talk about the H24, but DO NOT talk about the HR24 yet in the public areas. Also, DO NOT bring up anything related to the Field Trial ..

    The Field Trial is still ongoing at this point, so be careful with what you say.

    Thank You.

    The First Look is here: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=173316

    WooHoo. Thanks Doug. Is it ok to put the H24 in our profiles yet?

    Edited to add: The first look includes the RC65RX remote and mentions the two way programming. Those were only included with the HR24. We received an RC65 with the H24.

    Thanks .. We did some pulling and prying to get the H24 into a non-combined First Look .. I think once the HR24 is ready we'll integrate them again (the version you saw) and it won't be as much of an issue. Perhaps Stuart can put a quick update in.

    I think production H24s will get an RC65X. I have one in my possession, same as RC65RX but no RF obviously. I'd been told by several of you that the remote programming works with H24, so I left that part in.

    Those of us with only HR24's should be careful what words we use in the H24 thread until the HR24 is announced, because technically how would we know anything about the H24 other then what's in that thread.

    I may add the H24 comparison table but it will only contain information from the public thread.

    Did someone get an RC65X with their H24 to confirm that? I didn't.

    Maybe someone that got both H24 and HR24 can try the RC65RX with the H24?

    As I said to others privately, I had two choices. (1) Create a whole new chart in a ridiculously limited period of time and (2) try to explain it later. I chose the second one.

    I just continue to be amazed by the folks who make it a point to jump into these First Look threads, state "oh there's nothing new or good in there", and run. Several of these are very nominal posters or very new.

    Makes one wonder if:

    1) They even really read the whole full First Look
    2) Have the capacity to understand what they read
    3) Are posters who are there purely to play down or naysay something

    The First Look itself is a job well done by all, and well designed thank to Stuart.
