    Could be. May also be why it's been a year (or not). :)

    Only one unacknowledged mention of Tivo.

    That seems a little odd.

    You all already have your Tivo units or something?

    Isn't that kind of like reading the National Enquirer? :lol:
    Lots of rumor with an occasional grain of truth?

    I guess I stopped reading that thread a while back.

    I am putting two and two together and submit that is has to be a BCM7342 (HR24) paired with a BCM7340 (H24) plus today's announcement from DirecTV. I am getting more and more psyched by the day as we await the delivery of these new and exciting extensions to our digital homes. :D

    One can only hope. :) I like this part on the BCM7342:

    "3D graphics engine for an advanced user interface"

    I DON'T like this part:

    "Support for ... the Adobe Flash® Platform for the Digital Home ..." :eek:

    Flash on any platform sucks monkey balls. :)

    Dripping...
    Doug's firmwire site is now showing a -100 and -200, along with the -500 HR24. Wonder if the group will be getting different models of the box, maybe that's why we have such a large testing group this time?

    That's new just today - all with 037A firmware so far too.

    The HR24's all show up, but no H24's yet...

    Since this is a speculation thread...I speculate that somehow....someone will learn just what new chip components will be inside (not me :D)...

    I was going to post the exact same thing, but didn't want to offend any of the 100'ers. :)
