What are your thoughts on Dual Live Buffers?

  1. DLB's are not an important feature to me, based on my use of the HR2x.

    I'm not following what you are refering to. If you go under the assumption that MRV is the gateway to having a whole home system (which seems to be a pretty good assumption from the directv receiver roadmap), then you simply can not do it without first implementing at least DLB. Oh, they may not call it that, or even advertise it as a feature. But if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck.

    Earl was great at being overly pedantic. If Directv labels it as cheesy puffs then he'd say they have implemented cheesy puffs and not DLB. I'm more a hand grenade guy and thus will stick with that DLB functionality is a prereq to MRV as I understand MRV will work which I admit could be completely wrong.

    Permit me to clarify my above statement then. I don't know if DLB is somehow technically required to have MRV--I don't believe it is. However, I do know that DLB can be implemented right now if DirecTV wanted to, and its implementation is not dependent on anything else. DirecTV simply chooses not to employ it. I think that is what has so many of us pissed.

    How do you KNOW that DIRECTV can implement DLB right now? Would it cause a Restructuring and Reloading of the database on each DVR? How many resulting problems could that cause? Would Directv want to take that chance?

    I doubt it and I would bet lots of money that it will never happen in my lifetime!

    How many years has this issue been talked about ? If they (D*) read these forums they would know how much the people wanted this feature. Obviously the *******S don't care !! PERIOD.

    I guess the Jedi Mind Tricks aren't working. :rolleyes:

    I think we're not far from...something...whether or not it's better. I think somethings coming soon.

    BTW, I have nothing to base this on, just a feeling.
