    With the apparent widespread activation of VOD over the past 12 hours here's my prediction:

    This weekend: HR20-100 VOD CE
    Following week (Oct. 22): HR20 NR for both -700s/-100s

    Any other thoughts?

    After seven releases in this CE cycle, I think it's about the right time to expand to the -100 units and look at the bigger picture. You may be right about the CE, but I think it would be at least two weeks after the -100s get VOD before it goes national.

    I think I remember hearing that VOD will get tested in the LA and Denver markets for a while before it goes national.

    Too many canceled records to go with a -100 CE release lot along a NR. I think we will see at least one more CE possibly two more CE to fix the canceled recording problem. Hopefully with the extra debug info in the history logs they will nail the pesky problem quickly.

    Poor Earl... he's been exposed to the underbelly of the CE world the past few weeks.

    I still think we're knocking on the door - but its a valid argument about the missed recordings.

    Ok - adjusted prediction:
    This weekend: HR20-100 AND HR20-700
    Next weekend: Final release for both
    Halloween: Non-CE release (whether national or staggered, don't know)

    But the risk level is low.

    I predict there will eventually be another CE and NR for both the 700s and 100s. ;)

    The latest CE for the -700 has caused a severe problem where it changes channels by itself. Unless they can pinpoint exactly what's causing it, I think we'll see at least one more -700 CE before the -100 gets to join in.

    I forecast 1 more CE this week, followed by NR next week (if the next cut fixes the channel jump problem).

    No CE for 100. Just NR in 2 weeks.

    I think maybe Earl didn't see my humor in this comment.... (or maybe I'm missing the humor in his post :confused: )
