    They changed the additional receiver fee to an additional TV fee. Same price, different more accurate name. You would pay the monthly fee when using a C31/41 or a TV with built in RVU.

    Yes
    Yes
    Yes.

    The C31s are charged as extra Samsung TVs/RVUs.

    1. You'll get issues on channels that enforce HDCP, just like you would now on an HR2x with HDMI and Component cables at the same time. This is happening only on the On Demand and premiums right now.
    2. It will show up on all of the RVU clients...so on the HR44+C31s. If you have other (H25, etc) receivers not connected to a phone line, they will not get caller ID.
    3. Of course!

    Yes on the reciever. As a reminder, that 6$ fee is for sharing the programming (which is why you don't pay it on the primary, as you pay the full package price on that reciever). It is not for renting/leasing/equipment at all.

    Phoenix,...
    What's the time table on avaliablity? I'm off contract and have been getting flyers from COX and Dish. Centurylink is also rolling out their Prism TV service here in Phoenix, so lots of free offers from them on a daily basis.

    As has been poster already, there is no timetable. We haven't been told when they will become available.

    It can be used as any other DVR...except it will connect to your internet router wirelessly. :D

    Keep in mind as well that it not only connects to the internet wirelessly, but it also feeds the internet into the swm which will eliminate the need of having a cck-w. So it will allow all of your receivers to get connected to the internet.

    So is it safe to say it works with AM21s? Does it also scan for channels like the 34 does? I know the guide doesn't populate for the extra channels, but it's still nice to have them there.

    Yes it works with the AM21 and it scans like the HR34.

    does it bridge the internet into the swm? would the other recivers get an ip from your router or from the reciever feeding the internet?

    Yes, but I'd hard wire it if it was going to be the interface for multiple DVRs. Get a few MRV streams going on, then a few VOD downloads, could get to be a lot for a wireless network.

    Glad to hear it. This was going to be my question, because looking at the pics I did not see a USB port.

    Between the phone jack and ethernet port, above the eSATA connector.

    Yes...the different 2-pin power connector is one of the first things that is noticed when examining the back panel, along with the return of the support for both optical and coax audio outputs (when compared to the HR34).

    Wonder if one would be able to get a 44 to go with a 34 (and get rid of my HR22 & HR24)??
