So it also shouldn't matter whether you have a legacy setup, BBCs, SWM, DECA or whatever, right?
There has to be some sort of network connectivity, so I guess it depends on what you actually mean.
I can't see the RVU Alliance creating this technology and expecting everyone to buy completely new hardware. I think that would spell defeat or certainly hinder the adoption of this technology. I certainly wouldn't buy a new display just to have this, especially after just buying one last week.
True. I meant the type of connectivity and satellite setup won't matter.
You are absolutely right. They are making small (presumably inexpensive) set top boxes for most TVs.
If RVU succeeds, over the longer term more TVs will be "RVU Ready".
I just Bought a Samsung UN55D6420, with one of the deciding factors being the integrated RVU chip. I intend to have this TV for many years, so I'm looking forward to the capability but wanted to know if there was any insight as to when the HR34 might become available.
All we know is "October" according to DIRECTV.
I haven't seen any RVU app from Samsung yet either. We'll definitely keep our eyes open for them both.
My eyes haven't blinked yet. Waiting for both! Loving my Samsung D8000 and I'm not even sure if it has the chip. I would think they're in all/most of the 2011 models.
By the way, RVU isn't so much a chip as a software application on a fast enough CPU/GPU. I suspect any of Samsung's 2011 SmartTVs will work, though I do not know that.
I was PLANNING on getting a Samsung 3DTV (with RVU) this year, but we got my Sony HDTV working again, so as much as I'd like a 3DTV, I REALLY don't need to spend the money...
So what should we expect for the construction of C30 RVU Thinnet clients? Assuming an external power brick AC adapter for the power supply, mostly empty cabinet space with maybe a small PC board in the center?
Sort of like the AM21's insides ...
The AM21 is built to match the HR2x case style and shape. The C30, and its subsequent children, are meant to be small, in theory small enough to hid behind wall mounted TVs. So instead of a bigger, empty case, I'm thinking x25 or even smaller form.
The CES 2011 demo clients bore a striking resemblance to the H25 judging from the JetHead YouTube video.

Here's the client next to a remote control
If someone has an H25 with a remote control next to it, we'd be able to get a better idea of the size of the client.
Here you go.
Thanks, Tom! I'm excited to see what's in store, and I've been checking the app store every couple if days to see if it shows up.
But will it Serve Up Chocolate Ice Cream???
If so I will buy it!!! :lol:
While I don't think Samsung will have an app for that, it will connect, via RVU, to the Chocolate Ice Cream server they will be happy to sell you...
I'm glad to see this thread coming back to life. You all will laugh at me, but I actually bought a Samsung UN46D6420 completely forgetting about the RVU part. It was just the best TV for the money. Now it will be interesting to see how RVU works, once, you know, there's a server for it.
Luck favors the prepared.
