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.

I try to avoid wireless like the plague.

Amen. Everything that can be connected via ethernet (cat6) is (including all 6 HD receivers). Only laptops, smartphones and the Wii is wireless...

Me too. You know, they make (Or did, but you can still get them on ebay and the like) a USB ethernet adapter for the Wii. I have one from when I had my Wii (Use an emulator now), and am hoping it still works with the Wii U.
I just don't like wireless. It's not as dependable as wired, and doesn't transfer as fast. Just say the HR34 communicated wirelessly to clients. If they're all streaming OTA MPEG-2, you're talking almost 60 Mbps. I know 802.11n is rated for 450 Mbps, but I'm lucky if I get 100 Mbps right next to it. Throw in a few walls, a floor, and my signal is almost non existent.

At this point in time, I've dropped all cat5/6 cabling here. DECA and the WCCK, and all the computers are WiFi.
"Of course", I've done [and keep checking] a site survey, and tweaked my WiFi network, with my RF background.

"Can WiFi work?" Sure,

With present technology, I only can see a wireless connection to the router as a possibility.

But chip-wise, there is no reason why more powerful chips for memory & CPU can't be installed in the next model.

I mean graphically and functionality, the current HDGUI is still rather primitive compared to what can be done with larger chips.

I personally think my computers (Macs) are some of the best WiFi enabled computers available. And even they have had WiFi issues. And this is with Apple networking gear (Airport Extreme and Time Capsule). So if Apple can't even be 100% solid, no one can. IMHO and YMMV.

Why can I get to the "Adult's Only" area faster than I can get to the "ToDo" List?  DirecTV, that is messed up!!!

I've not going to knock Apple, but it doesn't matter who makes what, if there's a brick wall between the access point and the client.

Apples digital signal sues the other digital signals though for infringment and therefor gets priority so clearly if Apple can't do it no one can.

:lol:

U-Who uses a N access point @ 5 GHz, with the gateway WiFi @ 2.4 GHz.
"Proper placement" of the access point and nothing else using the 5 GHz band is a workable solution.
The idea of one main server streaming WiFi HD all over the home isn't very realistic.

I wonder what db their antenna's are for that if they really think it would work through out a 2 story home. I thought they just installed extenders in the house where they measured a certain signal loss.

Cisco makes them. A 2 story home might work with what's commonly used for flooring and the access point close in the floor below.
Figure there wouldn't be much hope with a concrete floor.

As I said, I laugh each time I see one of their ads about taking the receiver anywhere around the house to watch TV. "It's an ad", so it doesn't need to be "real", but just get the idea across.
