Probably all the jacks will dictate its overall size.
The monthly fee.
I've posited in the past that it could be the size of a band converter, with one person violently disagreeing. I have no inside info.
It could certainly be tiny. How tiny will more likely be a design decision rather than any particular technological limitation. I doubt they will be the size of band converters because that might confuse people, cause them to go flying (along with their IR receivers), etc.
You are missing something
Since an H25 is a STB receiver which has no DVR capability for a live TV buffer whereas an RVU client will.
At the C30 appears to be the only certified RVU device at this time, what else can they show? Are you expecting a plethora of Samsung TVs to be certified (or at least software compatibility enabled) by the time of the show?
Of course the question remains as to whether or not RVU is necessary for the HR34 to be useful or even successful. I'm betting that most don't care as they intend to use it without RVU.
The closest comparison I can think of is the HR21P where I suspect that very few took advantage of the OWLink optical HDMI feature.
Your missing the point here. They dont have to be "certified" in order to be shown and stated they are RVU devices. haven't we seen the C30 and HR34/HMC30 well before any certification was done by RVU alliance on them publically at least?.....
How do you know the buffering will take place in the client? (Vs. @ the HR34?)
I think there might be a monthly fee for RVU clients as well. I'm not sure that's set in stone.
My point exactly, Sarge. I don't know for certain what will be shown, but I don't see why something would have to be RVU certified to be shown at a trade show notorious for vaporware.
Oh, one more thing I'm sad to point out: Samsung "D" series smart TVs had a firmware update in the last 30 days and the RVU client still isn't visible in it.
With the HR34 there will be a 6. per month/per room fee
That's what I've heard too... but not sure if that's completely finalized.
Can't say as I'm really surprised. For such a free per/month programming service for RVU clients would obviously decimate DIRECTV's current $6.00 additional per/receiver price model.
If you have to pay a fee to use a RVU client then whats the point? just get another reciver
Probably size and convenience, plus the option to not have any additional hardware with SmartTV's.
Or better yet, another provider?
And no live TV buffering for the current STB receivers as I noted earlier ....
lot to claim before even a first look has been put out there....
anything could change b4 the product is actually rolled out no?....
