I know that the current HR34 (Genie) is a 700 model manufactured by Pace Micro. I'm just wondering if anyone "in the know" fathoms a time when the HR34 may be made by multiple companies...as is the current HR24 line of HDDVRs. I completely understand that it is unusual and probably irrational of me, but I've become quite attached to my HR24-200 and two H24-200s manufactured by Samsung. I wouldn't mind a time when a HR34-200 became available...if it is even a possibility. Before you respond, I realize that many, many of you are very happy with your HR34-700. I don't doubt that one bit. I'm not even out of contract for another couple of months anyway. Plus, my current setup is working just fine for me at the moment. This is more of a "just wondering" type of question.
