I think you'll see DLB and MRV working well before the T-unit is released.
I hope you are right!!!
More like BOOM, when your DVR explodes from overload... :lol:
or your head explodes because it actually works and gives you a "joygasm"... :lol:
I know you will have "MRV" before the T-Unit comes out but I'm not so sure about the "DLB" unless you are Doug's Brother-In-Law and know something that alot of us don't know.
Doug's not related but we did go to NC State. There's been a lot of button pushing lately and I stayed in a HI express a couple of months ago.
What kind of button pushing?? Please let us know.
How was your stay at HI?
I believe that concerning DLB I'll believe it,if I ever see it!.
I don't think we will ever see DLB on an HR2X DVR.
Maybe on the New MPEG-4 DIRECTTIVO DVR coming out in 2010.
You're right. We're going to see "something better" than DLB's on the HR2x's. /steve
As far as I'm concerned, if it doesn't INCLUDE DLB, it won't qualify as something better.
I would have to agree.:sure:
It has to contain some kind of DLBish component.
I don't care how it happens . I just want it to allow me to access either tuner and have them both buffering live TV, then I'm a happy camper.
Actually DLB would be 'something better' . . . certainly something better than we have now!!
Just let me push the DOWN ARROW and switch between two live TV buffers -- it can't be that hard !!
You're right. What ever the "something better", the DLB component has to be a one button operation.
Otherwise it's just not better.
Better is in the eye of the beholder.
And that was my 6000th post.
This week I discovered a new reason to want DLB (maybe the rest of you already knew this, but it's the first time I've encountered it). I set up a recording for the Oscars, and asked set it to record 15 minutes past the end time in case they went over. As I typically try to do, we watched delayed from the recording, to minimize commercials. They actually ended up going about 30 mins over. With my TiVo, I could have simply gone live, and used the buffer to catch what was missed. But on the HR21, since the tuner the Oscars was recording on wasn't considered the "active" tuner, it had no buffer. That time was lost.
That's why the 'workaround' doesn't work. It's caught me more than once when I've padded a recording -usually a sports event- and it goes over. Boom, you're hung and missed the last x minutes!
That reminds me of one my favorite sayings "Beauty is in the eye of the beerholder".
And congrats on 6000.
