Is this for real? If so why is there no "First Look"?

The only people who would know that are the people who may, or may not, be testing it and they aren't going to say anything.

I would guess it would be the same as using Samsung RVU?

When using a C31 would it have the same slowness and poor remote response as the HR34 that it is attached to?

I would guess it would be the same as using Samsung RVU?

It just seems logical that the peformance of a RVU client off a HR34 would be the same or a but slower then the same function locally on the HR34. Remember the HR34 is doing all the work, all the client is just telling the TV what video/audio to display.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

I hope the C31 would be owned units for around $50. I wonder if D* would think about the next version of the HMC, maybe they could have one with 8 tuners just to top dish's current promotion of recording 6 shows at once during primetime. I would like to see some sort of trade in program, I would trade in my 2 HDDVRs for a HMC and a C31.

I hope they are owned for $50 as well since Apple TVs go for about $100 and aren't tied to any service. The Apple TV 2 was $60ish to build and has 8GB Flash memory buffer which the C31 won't need or will require less than 1GB.
