See what I mean? This post is readable.
Being the past author of some pretty unintelligible posts myself (and English is my native language), I'll plead the fifth! :lol:
I think we're all past the "Lost in Translation" stuff...
I also think we should get back to talking about the HMC rather than P Smith. :backtotop
I had not noticed/correlated that DLB, AKA Double Play, had an effect on resources or was related to slow system response. I will have to do some experimenting now...... Curious that it would, when, presumably, simultaneous dual tuner recording while watching another recording would not have such an impact???
(and I mention all of this in the context of what features the HMC30 will or does have in this regard.)
Well, it was Posted by many people during the testing phase of DLB or DoublePlay and that is when I started noticing it and if could be that it affected certain models of DVRs more than others.
This is the same thing as with the AM21 OTA Tuner that causes alot of problems for some people with some DVRs and not for others, but that tended to cause Sluggishness and Lockups or Freezing so I abandoned it especially seeing that my Local Stations via MPEG-4 look great so I didn't need OTA any longer.
I use DP on HR20-700 and HR24-500 frequently and notice no problems.
Same here. I use DP frequently on my HR21-100 & HR24-500 and I've never noticed any difference in operation.
Maybe it's subtle enough that I don't notice it.
One thing I really hope that DirecTV is smart enough to do is include an RF antenna and remote with the C30 thin client so it can be hidden from view (like attached to the back of a flat panel TV) and still be controlled by remote. That way people don't have to have it sitting out in the open so it can be controlled by IR.
Hmmm...something we'll keep an eye out for at CES in 44 days from now. I'm guessing we'll see an updated prototype or pre-production HMC30 there this time around.
Would be better if they will make seamless link between the box and TV set so TV remote would control DVR.
That's a pipe dream.
Instead of 10,000 different codes - one for each model. Future models are supposed to be RVU compliant.
Curious why a pipe dream? In order for RVU to work, there needs to be an ethernet connection between the TV and the server DVR, and aren't we beginning to remote control the HR's via IP now? So when the TV remote is in "DVR" mode, e.g., the RVU client in the TV could conceivably translate those IR commands to IP commands.
Even when using the Local Playlist, I see a definite slowdown in deleting programs that wasn't there when I had my Ethernet MRV system. It's gotta be a product of the DECA system. I think. But, it is what it is and we have the choice to use DECA or not use it.
Or a "short list" of standard codes adopted by set manufacturers...
Standardized remote codes. What a great idea!
I've got three Panny BD players, two on Sony receivers. I can't get the Panny remotes to control the volume of the AV receivers. I know how to do it, but the codes don't work. Sony AV receivers, not some obscure receivers. I gotta call Panasonic up again.
Not really...after all...it was mine... :lol:
But seriously....having all those different remote codes out there is simply an incredibly poor way of deploying hardware. Perhaps 2 per manufacturer would at least lighten the load when programming a universal remote.
The way I read Beerstalker's post was that he was referring to the TV that is directly connected to the HMC30 (via HDMI or component), not an RVU client. Of course RVU-compatible TVs will be able to use their remotes to control the RVUed DirecTV interface, but that is something totally different.
Gotcha, I thought P Smith was talking about a TV with RVU built-in.
I missed Beerstalker's post, but I'd be surprised if a DirecTV client supplied remote wasn't RF capable.
RE: a Samsung or Panasonic display with a built-in RVU client, e.g., unless the HMC will have a different GUI than the HR's, I think the TV-supplied remote could present a problem if it doesn't have standard DirecTV buttons on it, especially the COLOR buttons. That said, I could live without an ACTIVE button.
