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.

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.


How?

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...

As for this thread...

I am closing it, as we have dedicated discussion threads for each of the things we started in this quick hit thread.
