With an HR34 and 4 HR2x HD DVRs, I have enough tuners, the problem is figuring out which tuner is available with the most disk space. That's why we need whole-home collaborative scheduling.


yup yup venture to say that might be the next "big" thing in the pip line from them. at least some form of it even if its only able to be done via an app.

Ugh, I want to upgrade my room to HD DVR, but now just the sight of this beast of a box makes me want to wait until 2012...

Worth the wait in my opinion less they roll out a collaborative scheduling update before, which seems near impossible at this point.

With a multitude of tuners is it PiP or Pipipipip? Meaning you can choose how many pip screens you want to display. One screen for each tuner?
Perhaps I Misremembered.

PIP is the usual two, either side-by-side or in a corner.

DLB is also two.

Would be a neat feature though wouldnt it? Make your own mix channel.

My TV does pip so I can get 3 windows on the screen.
Though even using a 64" TV the windows get a bit small.

Is the cabinet taller on the HR34 compared to the HR24? I see it's wider and possbily deeper just curious on the height. Shoot I was just getting ready to order two HR24's. I guess I'll wait a few more months to replace my ancient, but working fine, HR20's and buy one HR34 and one HR24.

Any idea when Solid Signal will have them?

Yep it's taller. Don't see any dimensions in The First Look,
Someone can post them or I'll measure mine when I get home.

No one knows when Solid Signal will get them. Don't think that anyone from the test markets has posted of getting one yet. They seem to be in short supply.

Pardon my lousy low-light photography. The HR34 is on the left, HR24 on the right.

Honestly, I rearrange too much stuff for testing and just general ADD-related tweaking to ever keep it organized very well. I have to keep lots of slack back there for moving things from one place to another on the shelves. Right now I have an HR34, HR24, AV amplifier, PS3, Xbox360 + Kinect sensor, NOMAD and a 4-port ethernet switch all hanging out on the entertainment center. Things have been this way ... for awhile. ;) Might be time to move things around soon.

Then again...not everyone is obsessed with the cosmetic exteriors of their electronics that typically sit in the same place and mostly out of view (other than the front panel.

True, though the degree to which folks have their A/V equipment positioned out of view does vary, and one can care about cosmetic issues without being obsessed with them.

I always liked the finish on the HR21PRO. Too bad that they don't make them in more than one cabinet finish.

Half right. HR20 gets the HDGUI. The H20 will not.
