I'm a Directv Tech and the HR 44 is coming soon


If that's the case, I hope wireless is the only real difference.

I doubt it's true. He has one whole post, and that's it lol
I DON'T see the point of wireless at all! With DECA, you have internet right through the coax connection. The only way wireless would be good would be like wireless from the SWM to the receiver. Do you really want Live Tv being sent wirelessly to your receiver? And what happens when you have that receiver recording 5 different channels at once? That's a lot of bits flying around!

Wireless RVU would be cool. Put a tv and C30/31 in any room that got a signal without needing a coax line. I don't think the 34 supports that version.

A wireless DVR itself just seems like a bad idea. A client is different.

And I believe we've had new members tell us something, and it does end up coming true within reason of what they originally said.

Isn't there an unused access point built into to W-CCK? Seems like that could be enabled to work with a wireless RVU client, if there was one.

Wireless to an RVU might be doable, but I'd STILL prefer wired. I prefer wired and use it for everything I can (ESPECIALLY moving video around).

Me too,but we've had people on here asking about that kind of functionality. There would be a market.

Now if/when the wireless RVU comes out, is that going to be something we have to fight about? Me: "I want a wired RVU." Directv CSR: "I can't specify wired or wireless. You'll take what we ship." lol

Actually that I could kinda see, and would be cool if it worked correctly. Run 1 cable from the LNB to the receiver, then have it wirelessly blast out signal to the RVU clients. That's IF it can be done correctly.

I took a U-who wireless HD receiver for a test drive and was quite surprised how well it worked.
They use a 5 GHz N access point, and with my survey software, found it was the only 5 GHz WiFi in the area. The 2.4 band is fairly full around this apartment complex.

.....And it will need a third party listing before that happens. Nothing as of this point.

A wireless RVU would be very nice for me and I could think of several places in my 2 story house that it would come in handy (kitchen, formal living room, master bath). Short of running wires down the side of my house and through the outside wall, I have 2 rooms where I have 0 possibility of getting a coax cable for a receiver. I could also use it in the master bath where the wife likes to watch TV while she gets dressed in the morning. Right now, I have to run cables under the carpet to slave off the master bedroom DVR. I could also use it outside by the pool to watch TV while the kids are playing outside. I have a wireless box by X10 that is supposed to provider this functionality today; however it's never worked very well. So long story short, I could definitely see a need/use for this type of device in my household.

Thanks,
Rich

I'm the stig, and there's no HR-44, but there is an HR-666...

Don't know what to make of it, unless perhaps it was only a prototype in testing that never went into production like other items on this list.

Such as the R23, I would gather. We know what was first shown at CES 2-1/2 years ago as the HMC30 is now marketed as the HR34, so there may also be some listings for things that have undergone name changes. So who knows?

Based on my experience with the "flagship" HR34, the HR44 ought to be a useable and mostly bug-free product by 2018!

I "upgraded" to an HR34 in March as a new customer. Wish I had gotten a 24 instead. The 34 is slooowwwww, buggy, and unreliable.

Unless you need to record 5 shows at the same time on a regular basis, I would recommend anyone to get the 24.

I will agree with you on this...go with the 24. However besides buggy and slow, I do not see really any missed recordings, other than the first runs don't seem to record until another repeat showing days later. My wife has had it with that.

Wireless eliminates the need to run a coax line to each room from the SWIM splitter, making for a much cleaner install and helps customers who are limited to where coax can be ran in the house. You just need one coax going to the server (receiver) the additional RVU TVs / RVU Clients would connect wirelessly to the server.
Installers who install in apartment buildings or rented homes can definatly see the benefit here as they don't have to run coax along the floor/baseboard throughout the whole apartment if the land lord specifies that no holes can be drilled in the walls. If a receiver of this nature was released I think it would be a good thing.

This might end up more of a pipe dream than a working medium.
U-Who offers one WiFi receiver and while I got it to work [fairly well] I also saw/measured it's limitations too.
