oops, that should have been PrimeTime Anytime.
Not a problem.
PrimeTime(sic) Anytime might be more useful if the technology allowed the user to pick which 4 channels and at what time to record. And as I mentioned in a different thread, have the ability to trim shows out of the block to store in the other partition for later viewing. Seeing as how that would require additional programming and it's to be released to the beta, I mean, subscribers soon, perhaps that will happen some point down the line. Well, it's wishful thinking.
I think you can bank on the space not being available for other purposes, same as with our current DVRs.
I was hoping that DISH might have taken that into consideration. That the technology to move partitions, without destroying existing data, has been around for awhile.
you still get the time they say you will get, which is 250 hours of HD. More than anything else dish has by miles.
And now your telling me that the primetime stuff goes on it's on partition and is not counted against that? I consider that a huge positive!
Then you would absolutely love 500 hours of HD or 2000 hours of SD.
Usually the company doing hard coded partitioning - no one chance to do changes of that. It was same pitch from many ppl, when we got the knowledge how big dedicated partition for VOD on the ViP models.
I remember that, and the complaints that followed about the poor placement of the intermediary screen, when all one wanted to do was go to Recorded Events.
