Tom, is that the HR21 as well as the HR20?

Probably just the HR21, since it doesn't include the extra cost of the ATSC tuner. /steve

Gee, are we that hard up around here now that a sense of humor isn't allowed?


Not really, just that a lot of us here are old farts and don't really understand what you say when you use text-speak on the forum :P :lol:

I believe the announcement was only for the HR21. My guess is it will signal the end of the HR20.


Can we wait for an announcement on the HR20? It has been declared dead a few dozen times, all of which have been wildly inaccurate.

The official threads are open now ...

(haven't made 5 posts so I can't quote Drew's URL links here)

Ces2008 - Hdpc20

CES2008: AM21 - ATSC Tuner Add-On for the HR21

CES2008 - DVR Scheduler (Remote Booking)


What about the PC Video Access (HD streaming to a PC), is there a separate post, and/or more info (like availability, etc.).

I assume it'll just require that the PC and the streaming device (HR20/HR21) be on the same network with sufficient bandwidth, and some type of software install to the PC?

Probably on the same LAN... but very little chance out side the local LAN

Unless Media Center offers some sort of similar feature


Even with content recorded on Media Center, there is a free component called WebGuide that not only adds remote scheduling via the web to any media center, but it also does streaming of your recordings and local music and videos on the web.

Downside is that I don't think it works at all with DVR-MS protected content, so it may be a dud with this new HDPC-20 product. (The streaming part anyway)

Any words on MRV?

If we can view programs on PC, why not on a different HR20/21?


You should be able to using the new Video features in the current CE's, since the Media playback over a network works using DNLA.

Also the note about it being a streaming solution holds hope that the H2Xs can serve as clients too!


Holy crap that would be nice..

Does the H2X actually have an ethernet port? I have one in my basement, haven't looked and don't recall. I do remember a USB port tho.

I think its always been directv's intention to use the H20 as thin clients. We shall see though. Even with a USB to ethernet adapter we should be in good shape. Those of us who were early adopters of the H20s will appreciate this options.

If not, well thats what retention is for. Call em up. They should hear from you minimum twice a year to get your money's worth.

So the question that I am dying to know is:

I have one HR20 and one HR21 Will I ever be able to share programs between the two devices?

Yes. That is MRV (multi room viewing) and Earl has stated multiple times (including in this thread) that it will exist for the HR2X series.

Wondering out loud if DirecTV might adopt something like the new slick Web-based streaming software (XStreamHD) to accelerate DOD streams to various DVR units, and perhaps as the foundation for MRV.....;)

From the XStreamHD press conference.... what I could gather from the brief description... is some new technology that they have developed.

MRV doesn't need a new foundation, unless you want all the work they have done up to now to be tossed...
