    I don't Robert personally, but I know of his contribution to DBSTalk and that's all good. However, the typos should not "slip" into ANY professional document. Especially with Auto SpellCheck!! Sorry, don't want to ruffle any feathers, just trying to keep DBSTalk standards on the high side!

    $599 for a rack mounted, double the hard drive space, optical hdmi, and all cables included....

    :grin: Muhahaha... If I hadn't paid so little for my 1TB Esata I could probably convince my wife to let me get this instead of expanding a leased HR20! :)

    Agree with others who vouch for Robert and his company.

    Do we know who is manufacturing the HR21Pro ?

    OK guys I'm embarrassed. I fixed a few of the typo's and tomorrow I'll have it proof read even better.

    I made the .pdf myself and it has as up to date breaking information that is available so please forgive the typo and errors. My only excuse is that I have too many balls in the air at one time.

    bwaldron, If I remember correctly it's Samsung who is making the first production HR21 p

    So it will be an HR21-200Pro.

    They build a nice box.

    Same here in Nevada, $0.39 in taxes if it is leased, ziltch if it is owned.

    Guess we will find out when those who were lucky enough to beta test the unit are allowed to post their results.

    More like HR21P-200.

    Or HR21Pro-200 :D

    In any case, if the unit is constructed similar to the HR21-200, it will be well-built.

    There are subtle little things inside of the HR21-200 that demonstrate some good thought went into mounting the hard drive, keeping fan or other noise levels low, keeping the unit cool, and maintaining solid connectivity at all touchpoints.

    Yes I thought it was kinda strange.... But if normal HR-2* has a 300 gig hard drive with the OS and storage set aside for showcases and such. Perhaps another 200 gigs would be enough for double the hd recording space.... but I'm just guessing. :)

    We've had these in at Perfect-10 since Tuesday, I've got them going to a ton of my retailers who are high end and of course to the internet sales guys, but I will tell you they are going to mark them waaaaaay up (between 1200 and 3000)

    I just got my HR21pro-200 box from Robert's company (good purchase experience). Neither RObert nor myself seem to be able to get any information on the RS232 control protocol. Does anyone know any of the engineering group at Samsung that could provide this information (common guys at Perfect 10)? It is very disappointing that a box geared to pro's who will rackmount the DVR and distribute video over optical HDMI and control with Crestron or AMX , is lacking basic information on the RS232 protocol. I have together posts on how to control older Directv boxes using US to serial converters but I really just wanted a pro DVR with a properly written RS232 protocol with proper documentation. Can anyone help????????
