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.

  3. I would prefer DLB's as implemented on the HR10, but the current work-around is OK.

  4. I want DLB's as implemented on the HR10. The current work-around is inadequate.

    At this point I just wish everyone would raise as much of a stink over the audio and video skips and drop outs. They are more annoying than the lack of dlb, I've gotten used to it not being there and I don't think about it anymore, but the audio video glitches are in your face all the time.

    Because they CHOSE not to include DLB, meaning it was not an error or an oversight but a pre-meditated decision to withhold a feature from the product.
    To me, the potential for legal issues (perceived or real) is a very plausible explanation for why that decision was made.

    Very interesting that Earl capitalized the phrase THEIR DVR as if to emphasize ownership and responsibility...:)

    Fair enough. :)

    IMO, legal issues are one of the least plausible reason. I just don't think it fits. :grin:

    The drop from 77% to 64% might be because the first poll had a higher % of HR10 converts voting, so they know what DLB's are like. /steve

    At a minimum, to compare these numbers, these two lines should be combined:

    I would prefer DLB's as implemented on the HR10, but the current work-around is OK.
    I want DLB's as implemented on the HR10. The current work-around is inadequate.

    So the percentage is more like 71% vs. 77% ..

    But in any case, it's hard to draw a strong correlation between the two sets of numbers. The biggest thing you can get out of both that poll and this poll is that a lot of people want Dual Live Buffers.

    My question is....hasn't it been (extensively) discussed and (repeatedly) confirmed that DLB will not be delivered any time in the near future?

    If it's not coming....it would seem interesting to discuss the concept but foolish to discuss the delivery.

    If it's coming...carry on...:D

    This is really more of a discussion of a concept, it's implementation, and theorys on why it's missing. :grin:

    You all keep forgetting to add the nearly 4% that flat out HAVE to have it or they won't go with the new boxes. Not to mention that ones that prefer how it was done on the TiVo...
