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

If these units are like the joey units, or rvu clients, does it mean they don't tie up a swim channel? I guess my real question is if you could have these in use and exceed the tuner count for a swim setup. For example, could a swm 8 have 3 h2x's, HMC, and say 4 or so c31's? I know the cinema kits don't use up a tuner like a receiver so im curious if these do. I would assume it would be possible since you can have up to 6 rvu clients on an hr34. I guess I don't know if a swm 16 is required for a setup like that tho.


With a HR34 and 3 H2x's you would only need a SWM8. Adding on the C31's, as I understand it, would still keep you at a SWM8. The SWM8 is limited to 8 tuners. The C31's, being RVU clients, do not have tuners so they shouldn't count against the tuner limit for the SWM8.

The only things that use/tie up a SWiM channel are satellite tuners. Any device that uses DECA/MOCA such as RVU clients, which a C31 would be, does not use a SWiM channel.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Thanks. That's what I was thinking too. Opens interesting possibilities.

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

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?

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.

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.
