I anticipate that even with 5 tuners, I will still have to cancel my other half's recordings to watch a live sporting event.

Not gonna lie here. Even with 5 I've ran into conflicts, esp when new shows start. But I watch too much tv as it is anyway. Lol

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.

Do we have any idea about the impact of the Western Digital Thai floods on HR34 deliveries?

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.
DirecTV: Genie, H25, CCK, GenioGo, SWiM-16 & SWiM-8, DECA to Gigabit Switch with FiOS (75/35)
FiOS: Roamio Pro's (2), Roamio Plus, Mini's (4) with Ultimate HD (My Roamio Thoughts)

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.
