    I see the firmware tracker is today showing two HMC30 units - suspect an announcement due in days regarding availability for the holiday season?

    If and when anything like that will surface....and based on what was indicated by a senior engineer from DirecTV at the CES in January...you can safely assume there will be a lengthy test period on such new equipment.

    Many times...those kinds of things appear temporarily and/or for internal testing first too....

    So much ado about nothing at this time I suspect.

    You doubt we won't see the KS25-700 too?

    The only word we've ever heard about the HMC30 is from CES. It was stated then that it would be late 2010 or early 2011 before this device would be available. I have no reason to doubt those earlier statements today.

    I'm hoping the HMC30 would have a lot more than 2 tuners and be a "true" whole home DVR solution. I'm holding out on a new receiver till this comes out. Otherwise what could it do better than the hr24.

    Isn't this the second time the software has been in the stream? Or at least the second time someone has noticed. ;)
