Don't forget other 'server' [HR44] is coming - gamma testing undergoing (based on a fact of spooling FW for it).

A new model coming down the pipe doesn't change much; especially if it only adds the capability for one more client session or more factory-installed storage.

Many of those who lust for one or more additional HR34 haven't expressed much interest in clients; their interests don't seem to require a more powerful server.

I believe what they are talking about is trying to get a C31 client to work on a system with two HR34 servers. I think there are problems like it only being able to see one HR34 at a time, and in order to switch which HR34 it sees you pretty much have to delete the device from your account and then add it again, and I think a CSR has to do it.

This seems more like a business decision than a practical necessity.

I received an e-mail about a "special offer" and a phone number for more information. The CSR said I could get a "whole home" system and installation for free and would only pay $3 per month for the service. He said what he was offering did not involve a new receiver, just networking and installation, but I could purchase a Genie for $599.

Obviously that is not something that DirecTV wants to have to happen, so they get around it for now by only allowing one HR34 on an account. That way the C31 will only have one HR34 to talk to and it avoids those issues.

My guess is once they figure out how to make the C31 work with multiple RVU servers easily (HR34s are the only ones out now), then DirecTV will consider allowing more than one HR34 per account.

I do think they have to work on this though, because eventually I believe we will start seeing stuff like RVU Blu-Ray players/changers, etc that can also work as a server. That means that the C31 will have to be able to talk to both the HR34 and the Blu-Ray player and switch back and forth easily.


Thank you, I hadn't read about that issue yet. That explains a lot.

Really ? Then you lost a grip of the thread.

We're talking about artificial constrain of mutli HMCs setups with one model HR34 now.
I'm pointing: there will be other HMC model soon, so it will pop up more questions about multiple HMC devices in one account.

You'd be wrong.
