There is no HR44. If there were, I would be keeping mum about it, but there isn't.

There is a successor to the HR34 already in development. How it differs, I don't know, but several semi-loose lips referenced it at CES.

Well of course there is... there's always something on the horizon. But I doubt it's far enough along that we can really talk about it here.

That's the one place I'd actually PREFER a cable lol No more rain fade!!


Installation cost might be a tad bit high though.
I do, I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.

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...
