So does this count as one unit when it comes to lease fees, $6?

If so I could drop 2 non-DVRs, save $6 a month and record more not to mention have PIP. lol


I think they are still working on pricing, nothing has been announced yet as far as primary and mirrored receivers.
Slimline 5 with SWM-16
Wireless DECA

:lol: One is plenty for me. A couple of H/HR2x's to fill in the gaps, so to speak, and I'm golden. It's a truly excellent box.

Yep, I did add to my post. 1 for me, and 1 for the spouse/kids. Very annoying to be in the Family Room and they have 2 recordings going and I want to watch the ballgame. HR34, problem solved.

I wish. ;)
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

5 tuners. Should have been 8, max out the swm.
Clients consume a tuner.
Single drive. Single point of failure. Host locks up all clients go down.

Some may like it, just not for me.


I suspect the 5 tuner limit is due to I/O bandwidth rather than SWM capacity... But that's just a guess.

The clients taking a tuner, well, yeah.

As for the SPOF, get an external mirrored eSATA case, like the guardian Maximus: http://www.newertech...oducts/gmax.php

The price is $399 sans promotions/rebates.

I'll get 2 of them to replace the 4 HD DVR's I have that do nothing but sports. It will save me on electricity and home theatre real estate.

You'll have PIP for sports or whatever you prefer. Great for catching up on a recording while the ball game is on in a corner (or side-by-side). Or two Sunday Ticket games.

YES PIP, two games at once! Hopefully it'll be out by Christmas so I can feel like a little kid again. :D

Now, if they'll just come out with a 9 or 10 tuner SWiM, I'll be all set. ;)

The only problem with that is that MRV won't work across the 16 and 8. :(
