From The Morning Bridge:

Teeny, Tiny DVR

Known for its continuing techno-innovations, EchoStar now has a really, really skinny DVR (code-named Mercury) on display at the big IBC show.

Just 9mm in height (that's about 0.35" for the metrically challenged), it includes all the cool stuff you'd expect including two-way high-speed services, a 32GB onboard (and upgradable) memory, plus (of course) the ability to support satellite, cable, IPTV and even WiFi platforms.

I believe the original 501 had a 40GB hard drive. So as long as you don't want to record HD programming, you're OK (for a while).

Is this the Satellite Receiver/DVR combo they promised about 10 years ago? :)
