    Of course many would consider Media Share as having never really arrived. :rolleyes:

    But back to topic .... :)

    Hey old timer...glad to see you back! ;)

    Media Share is being "re-tooled" and is supposed to come back in some kind of new form. Not much information yet on what that will be. Odds are if it can be viewed on the HR34, it can be viewed on the C31.

    With a Harmony 900, you can hide everything.

    Yeah, but I can't stuff it all behind a wall mounted TV. And third party RF remotes still use IR blasters.

    Presumably the c31. I Knew the device was being tested but not that it was available yet. Called customer service because I was having a signal problem. Upon mention that it was my 34 giving me trouble i was transferred to their "hr34 team". Ran a diagnostic, problem i called about cleared up and while he was moting the results I in passing asked about the availability of the RVU client. He placed me on hold for a bit and came back telling me it was available and been so for a week. When I check the order status in my account online it says Home Media Center Client... What do you think it is?? I diddnt think to ask the model number on the call...

    Sounds like a C31, unless they're sending you a nice Samsung RVU HDTV for $99 + install fee ;) I thought C31's were $49?

    They're not even available for residential yet in most cases.

    That must mean that Jacksonville is in one of the pilot markets

    Was $49 assumed or an official price?

    I'm also in Jacksonville and was able to order one on the 10th. It's listed in the order as "Home Media Center Client". I was told it would be delivered by the 13th or 14th but I haven't seen it yet so now I'm wondering if it is really available. I hope it shows up today.

    Post back when you receive it. I don't think I've seen a post yet from anyone outside the test team who has received an H31 yet.

    For people like my parents it is easier to use the same remote at pretty much every location. So I have multiple Harmony 650s for them now. So even though in some of their locations the DirecTV remote in RF will work fine since all they need to control is the TV and C31, it still would have been nice if I could have just continued to use the Harmony 650 there and used an IR extender.

    LMAO ;)

    We have some *31's in the warehouse. I'm not sure if any have been installed yet. I might ask tomorrow, other things are more important. Jacksonville is on the same roll as us likely requires a tech.;)

    Had to reschedule the tech for Wednesday. My son didn't hear him at the door.

    I still don't have my C31 and the credit card charge disappeared. I also don’t get any answers from them but will post when I hear something. Frustrating!!
