Will the upcoming new HD DVR allow content to be saved to BluRay or HD DVD?
Posted 04 March 2006 - 03:06 PM
If not, any guesses on the size of the hard drive DirecTV will ilke install in the new HD DVR? (bigger or smaller than the current HD DirecTiVo)
The reason I'm asking is that I think it is unlikely that the new HD DVR can be upgraded by adding/replacing a larger hard drive. (can't be done on the R15 DVR, as far as I know)
Thanks for any rumors!

I'm also sure the HD DVR hard disks will be much larger in capacity (due to the higher volume of data streaming in HD programming) thus, the higher prices of HD DVRs when they come out.

And that has less to do with the HR20, then it does with the fact that the broadcasters would have an absolute heart attack, if we could easily save an HD quality version of teh program to a stand alone recorder.
HR20 will most likely have a 250gb (based on current statements about recording capacity)... DirecTV has already announced they are going to release external storage add-ons
