    Cool!

    A public announcement of a field trial seems a little odd.
    How often has that been done?
    Seems like you hear about such things here first.

    Very rarely. We've heard about really advanced tests like reverse DBS and Ka long before they turned into products; so this is still unique.

    Cheers,

    Sounded to me one of the immediate benefits of this RVU device is to allow us to use our mobile devices as displays.

    Maybe they are trying to downplay the announcment of new receivers dish made last week.

    This technology sounds WAY cooler then what they announced last week!

    Guess then the HR34/C30 aren't the STB's that some folks thought were the STB's that Pace said a major customer was deferring.

    For crying out loud, it's not even out yet and someone is already pissing and moaning about getting a 3 year old refurb. Unbelievable. :nono2:

    We saw this at CES this past January, so I know they exist. Can't wait to see one at my house.

    Assuming that someone steps up to write an RVU client for the devices in question.

    Here's what's in the DirecTV release:

    ...there's nothing about mobile devices. As for the linked RVU site....they only talk about potential uses, nothing related to this implementation.
    Exactly.

    Shouldn't that someone be DirecTV? BTW does the mobile device have to be RVU compliant?
