    It's been posted in this thread many times... No Samsung TV's will work with the HR34 without a H21, H23, H24 or H25. There are no working, or certified, RVU clients at this time.

    I have an HR34 and a Samsung UN46D6420 and can confirm without a doubt, there is no RVU in it.

    I would be super pissed if I were you.....one of the main factors in me buying one of those sets would be the RVU compatibility.

    Winters,...
    Stuart doesn't seem the type to get pissed at things such as that. And besides, there may be secret stuff inside the recent Sammys, waiting for a firmware update... Who knows??


    The Shadow does..........

    Samsung 6000 series televisions with a software update that is tech invoked will make these particular series of televisions rvu capable. They have not yet released the software but they will soon. Also the c-30 that you guys are looking at will more than likely be a short lived model.:grin:

    Why is that? All RVU TVs are currently huge. Not the idea size for most places where you would want a RVU-type connection -- guest room, den, kitchen, garage, etc.

    When Sammy releases the RVU firmware for the D6000 series, will they require a broad band DECA to hook into the cloud served by the HR34? I mean, will that be required for the internet connectivity to the D6000, or will it be able to hook directly up to the coax?

    Thanks. That is what I thought would be required. Hopefully, small screen sets (32" or 36") will be coming out with RVU about the same time the HR-34 reaches wide distribution. Then I could sub the HR20-700 for the HR-34 and add a set in the kids room.

    sounds good. but if samsung is involved in it then i am wondering if they can make this software run on lets say a blu ray player and then youre set i would think. youre not linked to having to have another piece of dtv equip

    If the receivers can have built in DECA's, why can't the TV's? It would make for more of a simple connection, one coax cable into the back of the TV.

    Dont quote me, this is complete speculation. But maybe it has to do with directv not Manufacturing the tv or something and i am in agreeance that would make a slick setup.

    Winters,...
    Where do you get the info. that RVU will require ethernet? Other than DECA, that is. With a client, or a TV with built in client, I am pretty sure one cable from the HR34 will handle it all.

    I agree. What I picked up about a RVU Client, they're not part of the DECA Cloud.

    It's been assumed that the TV would be Ethernet connected and communicate with the HR34 through the CCK. Same as Nomad.

    It's technically possible to have a standalone self powered DECA dongle attached to the TV but probably not very likely unless there's plans for some mainstream supported kit.

    I am a service tech and we went through all of the training this week. There has to be coax ran to each location with a broadband deca of some sorts (either black or rcvr deca pwrd with 21vpi). that coax goes back to swm splitter creating that deca cloud and then ethernet to the tv. And this is all the initial ways to get this up and going. It would not surprise me if there werent a thousand different ways to get it to work with other providers.:D
