I saw the next gen DIRECTV multi tuner box (more than 3) in the Entropic booth along with a client device. Both use MOCA. Sorry for poor quality of photos maybe someone can go back to south hall and take a better shot.it was showing RVU demo with epg and live video on sever and client

Any more details? Is the tuner count including using an AM21 for two ATSC tuners or is it only DBS tuners?

See post My Setup for configuration info.

If it has 4 actual satellite tuners, I'll definitely consider it, as long as you can have more than one!

This display is related to the RVU Alliance .. I think this might be an early look into the home media center.

All of DIRECTV's receivers have very similarly functioning firmware. I can't imagine this one is any different.

Didn't we already see that back in '04?:rolleyes:

I wonder how many streams will be able to host at one time.

Ah-ha! The second box was first spotted at CEDIA 2009:

The first box may be the smaller ones seen at the CEDIA "home" setup, too.
