    My guess is that the RVU spec will require color buttons on the remote, which have pretty much become an industry standard. Of course there will be no Active button, but that's pretty much the only proprietary button on DirecTV's remote.

    My current Samsung TV, which obviously isn't RVU-compatible, even has the color buttons on the remote.

    That's good to hear. Does your Sammy remote support SKIP, REPLAY, GUIDE & EXIT as well? Those are the other ones I hope would be there.

    Don't forget List. I'm at work right now so I don't have the remote handy, but I believe the only one it has is Exit. But it's only meant to control the TV and Blu-ray player, so that's not surprising.

    Just dug out my 2009 Panny remote. Looks like all it's missing is RECORD and GUIDE. I assume "Favorite" could bring up the LIST.

    I'm wondering instead of using your TV remote you would use a D* remote set to RF to control a specific tuner thats being sent to that TV, and just using the RVU chip in the TV to receive the signal?

    I don't see that being the case, since RVU could easily reach places that are outside of RF remote range.

    At CES last year, the demo prototype units had separate conventional remotes working both the server and the client...but being a demo...likely not a final configuration.

    We'll perhaps see an updated setup in 42 days at CES...and report back on what we find out on the HMC30.

    RVU would seem to be primarily concerned with UI and a remote control protocol as opposed to some sort of Internet streaming protocol. DLNA is not something that is typically implemented across LAN boundaries.

    So maybe remote control commands over coax cable?

    I wasn't referring to places outside the home, just places inside the home that are outside of RF range.

    The remote commands will be part of the RVU protocol.

    No updates on these STILL? These are almost a needed item for the HR34.

    I'm not sure why this thread was bumped...

    HMC30, now known as HR34, is out in test markets. The Samsung RVU client is supported.

    If you're asking about external RVU clients, they're not available yet. As you've already started a new thread on that subject, I'm closing this one.
