2TB of recording space what more do you need other than RVU clients as they are released. I can see my future home theater taking shape :D

Presumably this would get rolled out when they have a RVU client as well?

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.


Well, if you are just using it as a "big mama DVR" along with a bunch of other DVR's you are no worse off then if you had only 4 regular DVR's.

If you had one HR24 and 3 H24's you'd be in the same boat as 1 HR34 and 3 RVU boxes, no? Your TV would still work in case of failure of the DVR side.

Pardon my ignorance but what does RVU mean? I guess I have been out of the loop. Looks like its time to make the jump to SWIM. Right now I just have standard hookups- four out of the Slimline 3 to two WB68 multiswitches then out to my receivers. Would I need a new dish? Thanks for the info.

There can be RVU client receivers, or even better ... RVU client TVs (no box required).

Interesting that they have taken away the composite video output but retained an s-video output.

Great first look, supplemented by the information in the second post.

My Samsung UN55D6400 is a RVU client/capable TV. I am so looking forward to combining it with the 34!

I'm using mine with a coax-to-optical audio converter. Got it from Monoprice.com. Works great.

Oh I am the last person that would be bothered by no optical out, I just know that some people have gotten upset by previous newer models not having it.

What went live vis a vis MRV with these? If you have an HR34 and an HR24, can the 34 see the 24 in its playlist?

Am I the only person who would immediately put a 3TB drive in an eSATA enclosure?
