Can I send you a Ruth's Chris Gift Card to bribe him with? :lol:
You will have to send TWO Ruth Chris Gift Cards as I will have to explain to him over Dinner why this is needed!!! :lol:
Have its specs and features been posted online anywhere?
I just like to see more flexibility with additional addons - like flash memory for storage.
I haven't seen it here so I'd have to say not yet.
Not publicly... But I think those following this thread already have a basic idea of what's to come
We will report back on those Specifications and Features if they are revealed to us and others at the 2011 CES.
Well not publicly.....and maybe not necessarily privately.....
How about privacly. :lol: 5 was my hypothesis.
In case anyone wants to see a demo of the prototype, here is a [link] to a Youtube video at the IBC 2010 show that was in Amsterdam back in September . They show the server and client and bring up the guide and playlist on both.
Sounds like we will get the 5 tuners and 1 TB of storage as well, not to mention possibly PIP [link].
That information is consistent with what we saw and were told back in January.
That PIP does interest me. But it will be years before everything is RVU compliant in every home.
Well now that is sounds like I am getting the 5 tuners I want thanks to you guys, I also want to be able to record a show from lets say two days ago that I missed and did not set to record. Can you help me with that too? The buffer only goes for so long on these machines. Am I asking for too much here?
Wow...That's a TB less than ONE of my DVRs now ..Maybe the HMC30PRO?
You may not be asking for enough
Okay I will stop now.....
Very excited with all the new DirecTV toys on tap. It's like Christmas is coming! Can't figure out why my family thinks I'm a DVR freak.
...unless of course....DirecTV provide client units that were already RVU compliant somehow....or firmware modifications to existing HRx/Hx series units could be RVU responsive....
Somebody knows something...
This may be a case of he genie telling the master what to wish for
why 1TB, lets go 2 or 3 TB. If it will have 5 tuners it will need significant more space. I wonder if the box will have 1 or more drives in it. Makes me wonder how can the hard drive keep up with more than 2 or 3 concurrent recordings + buffers, etc.
Lets assume it does have five tuners and 1TB drive. That comes out to about ≈225ish hours of MPEG-4 HD. Lets assume a 2TB drive costs $20 more than a 1TB drive....for 1 million HMC30s that's an addition $20 million is production costs.
So, the qeustion; is 200 hrs of HD enough for the average family? I think so.
Until this thread, "legacy" meant any receiver that wasn't SWM capable.
