    He doesn't know. He's actually a Dish subscriber. IMHO, he puts his opinions out as fact without any real justification. Just take what he posts with a grain of salt....or a whole shaker if need be.

    Salt block, large bag of salt, salt truck...all these may be necessary in his case. ;)

    When I have only one person in my ignore list, it might be a clue to how I have a salt free diet.

    Even a broken watch can tell the correct time twice a day, the key is knowing when it is and if you know this, you have no need for the watch.

    Now that is Funny but True!!!

    I have Updated my Opinion so here it is.

    It seems like Nomad will use IP Control to Control the DVR like the Cell Phone now uses to Schedule DVR Programs but will have a DECA Connected External Hardware Device (MDR1R0-010) to Stream or Distribute the Recordings like Slingbox currently does and then will probably have a UPL so you can Select and View Recordings on any and all DVRs connected to your WHDVR Network.

    This is my Best Guess and maybe in the Future you will be able to View not Only Your Recordings but also Live Content as well using your Cell Phone or IPAD or PC, etc.

    Funny, most services (like the king of legal downloads, iTunes) allow for multiple copies before they start charging again. Same with Amazon. Odd that such a "push" wouldn't be done already by the trend setters.

    Well, in that case I'd say you're just spewing a worst case scenario .. I'm gonna stick with "subscription" vs. "per use" and we can see which one of us has the right answer at the end of the day. ;)

    To be fair, it wasn't really clear what facts were involved, hence the probing. Consider harsh's words as worst case ..

    So far, the history has shown that these types of services come with an added monthly fee. HD Service, Whole Home DVR Service, etc. If (as is likely) this is an external device, it will probably come with a "purchase price" which may or may not be a lease - really depends on a number of factors - and then a per-month fee to use it.

    Whole Home Service has turned out to be a very positive service for DIRECTV. The new out of home service could be just as attractive to many people. Why limit the usage by charging per-use when you're likely to hook a lot more people via subscription.

    If the hands are broken off the clock, that analogy doesn't work so well. :p

    All depends on your (or my in this case) definition of "a day." :p

    Cedar Park,...
    Lots of interesting speculation here. Since a specific device is mentioned (MDR1R0-01) I would agree that it is probably DECA connected and an additional subscription service. Lots of potential. I'll be interested in seeing what really develops.

    And all this time I thought Nomad was an old Chevy station wagon.

    The challenge at this point is that there are numerous possibilities (a good thing) and multiple ways to use this all.

    It's all good...so hopefully we see the fruits of this new set of "opportunities" in the near future.

    I'm see potential in contrast to the current Slingbox setup I have now....so it will indeed be interesting to see what unfolds...

    All I care about is getting my Recordings on my Verizon Droid or my PC without pixellation and hiccups.
