I just got my hr20 about a week ago. It seems like they (D*/NDS) are really trying. It looks like they examined *why* we hacked the Tivo, and tried to accomodate most of those reasons. Unfortunately, it's still a work in progress.

Does anyone have any info (rumors, statements, etc) when the following will be enabled?

o Show sharing via the network (This was admitted to a while back, but no timeframe was given)
o Drive expansion via eSATA (keyword being expansion, not the current implementation)
o OTA?

Other questions...
o What do they intend to do with the USB? Is it for storage, or something else?
o What OS does it use? I've heard Linux, but no proof.
o Is the OS is on HD or ROM? Both?
o Do they intend to expand the use of the network port (ala Tivo Desktop type functionality).

I realize a lot of this is speculation, just looking to see if someone's heard anything that I haven't.

Thanks,
Doc

1) Sharing via the network.... not for a very very very long time if ever
2) Expanding via eSATA... probably not for a very long time (once they fix the issue with it only seeing 300gb on the eSATA, that will be about it for eSATA for a while)
3) OTA... very soon (no set date yet)

USB - DirecTV2Go.. and possible Wireless Nework Adapters... not for storage
OS - No difinitive answer
OS is on a flash chip
Network use expanision... ViiV is the only thing announced, which is partial what TiVo Desktop does
