Thanks for posting these Stuart...as promised, hdtvfan0001 has more and he and I will get together and writeup what we found at the Entropic Communications booth.
BTW everyone, my pleasure. This was my first CES. I am so glad I got to meet richierich and hdvtfan0001 and we endured a few steps through this huge display of man toys, wow it was amazing! (No offense ladies, you have to admit our passion for these things on the whole are far more stigmatic towards men, I know a few of you are just as nutty about them ).
As Smiddy, RichieRich, and I toured the flloor yesterday (a very long day)...we saw many things. Cameras were popping, eyes were opened (often in 3D!), and even some misinformation was somewhat clarified.
Smiddy and I will get our information assembled and normalized, so that we can provide clear and accurate information about the Entropic booth experience. Even some fo the folks who previously visited this booth did not actually get all or accurate information, and we simply were fortunate to meet with a significnat DirecTV staff member during the time we arrived.
Much more is known, much more is yet to be finalized by DirecTV, and what we know to be fact will be shared. While that won't satisfy everyone's curiosity and speculation....there was alot learned yesterday in our visit beyond any of the rumors, misinformation, and guestimates made to date.
Smiddy and I will sort through that and provide it to the Mods for posting when we are done -patience please - Smiddy is traveling today back home, and I'm still here onsite today - planning to make additonal visits to key locations at CES....as well as forward more photos as time permit today.
We'll also include a quick most on our great meet, greet, and dinner gathering here last night with Draconis, AltCool, SpartanStew, RichieRich, Smiddy, and I at Maggioni's for some beverages and Italian.
Yesterday was a VERY long day...so we have some jet lag and time change adjustments to make....but more goodies, information, and photos are coming.
CES has been very worthwhile to attend this year for those of us who came!
