    The last I heard about the firmware is that Doug was guessing some of the bits in stream. Until the units are actually seen, the data streams can be hard to confirm.

    And it would make sense the HR24 might be the next new model in the pipeline. (Rats! I wanted the HR4x with 4 tuners to be next.) :) :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    It's a complete guess .. There are new bits in the stream, that much can be determined .. What it actually is? :shrug: .. your guess is as good as mine right now, so I'd take the model number with a grain of salt.

    I don't know, you'd think if there were a new model that I'd have heard of it by now.

    This is true but even if you had heard you would have to deny it's existence due to a NDA which is more likely. ;)

    **IF** the next "first look" soon shows up we'll know for sure if what you said is indeed the fact.

    that tech is not built for the load that a HD DVR puts on a disk.

    A small ram disk + a full HD is better and they should put one in the HD only boxes to give them a small live buffer + one for VOD and MRV.

    I suspect the only place you'll find out information on the device you are referencing is here:
