Read the full interview here: http://www.engadget....elfiore-part-i/ .

I've quoted what I think is the relevant portion:

SS: DirecTV… Will this also be in the Vista timeframe?

JB: We haven’t announced the specific timeframe around when the DirecTV products will be available. The team is working super hard right now with DirecTV. We’re absolutely well in progress of getting this done. However, we don’t yet have everything figured out to the degree that we’re ready to tell a date, but once we get there we know that people are super excited about it – we’ll let you know.

SS: OK so we won’t talk dates. We’ll talk product; will it be a similar product to OpenCable?

JB: The basic idea is very similar, which is that you can get essentially a receiver device that is a DirecTV receiver and connect it through some digital connection to your PC. [Doing so] lets you get all the great value from the DirecTV service, including High-Definition. If you subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket, you’ll be able to get that. All that good stuff.

sign me up! Sunday Ticket and promises of MCE integration are the only thing that has kept me with D* through the hr20 ordeal.

I wont believe this will happen until it does. I have a Vista 64 bit Media Center connected to my Xbox 360s and would love to do direct capturing but I am not holding my breath. Especially with the Liberty deal. Who the heck knows what this new management is going to do to ongoing wish lists.
The Meaning of Life...

Well there's nothing really special

Try to be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in,
and try to live together in peace and harmony with all people of creeds and nations.
