My best guess would be that it incorporates clients such as Hulu or Netflix as a complement to DTV services and has a wireless AP built in as well, and my reason for guessing this is because that is the direction all TVs and nearly everything else is headed at the moment. Pretty useless AFAIC; just more feature-bloat instead of much-needed performance and reliability improvements, assuming my guess is anywhere near the mark, of course. Par for this course. One other possibility is wireless from the DVR directly to tablets and phones. I can see a limited value in that for some customers, but not me.
