Please indulge me to share this information. Now that DECA is public, MRV is back for round two of testing, and we've had some time to test the DECA cloud itself - I thought I would "push the envelope" today to see what all this new technology and firmware can do. My setup is contained in my signature link...but a brief summary is that I'm running an "N" class DLink router, and have my DECA units connected to an HR20-700 on one floor of our home, and HR21-200 in my Home Theater (on another floor), and an H21-100 receiver (on a 3rd different floor). I use a single "N" class Wireless adapter for the Internet feed to the entire DECA cloud. This morning...following my download of the latest CE's last night...I spent 3+ hours testing something for the first time: 1) I brought up SlingBox (SB) on my desktop PC - the SB is connected to my HR21-200 HD DVR. 2) I started up the HR21, and selected the playlist. I chose one of the MPEG4 HD programs that shows up in the list, but is actually recorded on my HR20-700 HD DVR (via MRV) in my Family Room. 3) I then watched that program for 90 minutes, and then 2 others for another hour - 2 1/2 hours in total. 4) I then watched 3 different "You Tube" videos via MediaShare (TVersity-driven) from my desktop PC. To summarize what was going on -- I was watching this all on my desktop PC, while being connected to my HR21 via a Slingbox, but watching programming located on my HR20 (via MRV). All of these devices are ultimately connected to the same DLink "N" router. With 3+ hours of total playback...I saw one very brief (1 second) instance of pixellation on just one program. The entire time - the lights on my DLink router were flickering away vigorously....but I did not lose any ability to watch or hear the audio during the entire testing period. Even though I have been very involved in CE testing a long time - since the programs inception - to me...these were still quite awesome results. When thinking about where and how the video / audio was moving around between all of these devices, and being carried over the DECA cloud in tandem via an SWM between devices, as well as back through to my SlingBox and then ultimately to my PC...I have to admit I sat back for a minute thinking about all this, and briefly said to myself - WOW. If SWM & DECA indeed become staples in DirecTV hardware going forward in 2010, and MRV is also firmly implanted in HD device firmware...this entire viewing experience to watch what you want, where you want, and when you want it will be truly amazing stuff for everyone. Seeing it in action for several hours this morning reminded me of just how far HDTV viewing in the DirecTV world had come in just 3 years. It also refreshed my memory that the purpose for the entire CE program is to test out all of these kinds of firmware and hardware, so that all DirecTV customers ultimately get to enjoy the rewards of the work of the CE program. I have always been appreciative of the opportunity to test, document, and work with the CE team and Mods to contribute my small share. Thanks to DirecTV and the Founder of the CE program (EB), the DBSTalk Moderator team who keeps this all running extremely well, and my fellow CE testers who provide valuable information to advance the viewing experience. One final WOW.
