    Outside...
    I don't really see any reason to continue with a new Hx2x receiver at the moment. The only thing I can imagine coming out is the RVU client, and MAYBE an 8 tuner HD DVR (Just plug the SWM LNB into it, and have all RVU clients). Once we start getting into 4k resolution, then we'll probably see some new 2 tuner DVRs.

    Larger Hard Drives.

    With DECA, I don't really see the need for Wi-fi. Larger hard drives, yes.

    Totally disagree.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the HR24 is the last two tuner HD-DVR. If it's not, I expect it won't go many beyond it.

    Do like I did and connect a 2TB external hard drive if you want maximum recording space. There's really no need to go any larger as 2TB holds 1,600 hours of SD and 400 hours of HD and you can schedule up to 100 different series links. The only reason I can see wanting anything larger than 2TB is if you don't use your DVR simply for watching programs and then deleting them; meaning you want to record movies and/or series and then keep them permanently to build a virtual library.

    FYI -- you cannot go larger than 2TB on any current receiver

    Consumers want wireless. Not black boxes all over the place.

    We're talking about INTERNAL hard drive space. Not everybody is going to want to hook up an external eSATA drive to their DVR. It takes up space, it uses more power, it takes up outlet space. Not to mention that over the next few years, larger hard drives will be easier to buy in bulk than 500gb hard drives.

    Also... only the HR34 has 100 Series Links. The other DVRs have 50.

    Unless DirecTV figures out a way to connect STBs to SWiM wirelessly, those consumers will already have a cable going into into their STBs. One wired CCK or wireless CCK will connect them to the internet without them having black boxes all over the place... well, aside from the STBs of course! :D

    Eventually the internal hard drives will be 2TB. Until then you can find external enclosures that really don't take up much space. And with a high quality power center there's no worries about having enough electrical outlets. Cosmetically the fewer the number of pieces of equipment you have is always better if you're equipment is out in the open, but when your setup is that of an enthusiast, one small external piece is neither here nor there

    I have a 2TB external on my HR23...

    My point was that the way the external drives are setup will most likely deter most subscribers from getting one.

    Future DVRs WILL have bigger internal drives.

    Yes they will. Just like with computers we will always need a bigger hard drive - LOL

    I was actually surprised the 34 has 1TB.

    The difference with computers, as hard drive sizes went up, program bloat and size went up.

    Indeed...

    If DirecTV's plans for the HMC (HR34) are what they (seem) to have implied, the HR35 NEEDS a 2TB at least, IMO...
