    It's time to start revealing some factual info.

    The model begin testing by Dish recently - Nov 2011; you can find historical data about FW versions in EKB and the DVR here.

    FCC documents: search by FCC ID DKNTK421 here
    The device tested had internal Seagate HDD and Seagate eSATA EHD, also with other USB EHD.

    Some pictures is here.

    Some ppl have too much affiliation (passion ? love ?) with their anchor site, so could unintentionally inflate its attraction. :D

    I don't care where it comes from, good info is good info... But when posting info or links from other sites remember two important rules:

    1. Do not post links to anywhere without also posting some description of what one should expect to see.. In other words, briefly summarize or quote a few lines from the destination link before posting your link.

    2. Do not post entire content from another site unless expressly permitted (ex a corporate press release is meant to be quoted and distributed in entirety and thus I permitted). Summaries only, usually a few sentences or a paragraph is sufficient before posting the link.

    Now, back to topic.

    That would be hard to convince the tester ... perhaps some particular picture ? ;)

    I can't get clear understanding how the 813 will support Slinging - new page about the Hopper mentioned Sling Adapter a couple times. Is that means the DVR will works as 722k with the USB gadget?

    EDIT: By dish press release the 813 will need Sling Adapter for use TVanywhere.

    Yeah, the whole "slinging" thing has me concerned. I was under the assumption this thing had network capability built in and wouldn't need a sling adapter.

    Not sure I like the whole prime time recording thing since I rarely watch prime time network TV, but I guess it is a cool feature. I wonder how they are doing this???

    Time will tell what the costs involved will be. Hopefully it wont be outrageous.

    The DVR for sure use MOCA to support clients aka Joey aka XiP110 thru cables; if you need TVAnywhere, then ... will see.
    To record all 4 HD channels by one sat tuner at once it will tune to correct transponder what carry all the channels.

    Count me out if they are using Seagate drives. And that would explain all the drive failures if those are in current models. I have had many DISH receivers replaced due to drive failures. Well there were hinky software issues too a couple of times.

    I use to swear by Seagate, but over the years they have gone down hill. We have switched to WD's in all our in-house and clients gear after we started seeing a dynamic increase in drive failures. Even in new drives. For a while I was buying WD's by the case.

    Plus I have had multi-room single unit capability since DISH's "one box, one TV" days (1995). So . . .

    They exposed Seagate drive inside XiP813 during FCC certification, but approved list had WDC also.

    Some notes while looking at BobaBird's pictures at EKB:
    - the letter X in new line's name of boxes XiP came from eXtention of DP/DPP technology, what technically means adding IP stack over MoCA 256QAM
    - full name of the DVR is "Hopper 2000" (I guess it's because of 2000 GB drive size ?)
    - would EHD running out of eSATA port on back, not USB as previous ViP models?
    - purpose of second Ethernet post ?
    - where is the games ?
    - no one word about AppStore and Apps development
    - no picture of USB Rose Sling Stick.

    Although I have had a "whole house" system since 1995, after seeing the limited coverage of this, I'm excited.

    My kingdom for a Users Manual to see how excited I should really be . . . .

    Thanks. Saw that this afternoon. The "carny" is a little weak. And the c|net live whatever that was. But they were enough and that is what sparked my interest and then I saw some stills, more importantly the backs of the two. Now the next step, the "down and dirty" complete capability details. I'm curious if I can integrate this into my system. Or how much of my system this might replace? Will it HA integrate? And clients will be asking. So . . . I guess I can live with the suspense a tad bit longer.

    Thanks again though.
