No, you're just being deliberately obtuse.

Computers are general-purpose, "white box" devices with a user-customizeable (and user-screw-uppable) OS, with applications installed by the user.

A DVR is a dedicated, single-purpose "black box" device with no user-customizeable OS, and without end-user-installable applications.

The two are nothing alike, and since I don't believe you're this stupid, I can only assume you're intentionally trying to muddy the waters.

And as far as "what matters", charging your top-tier customer base $300 for becoming unwitting beta-testers and forcing them to remain so for an indeterminate period of time while leaving them without a viable DVR solution is VERY MUCH what matters. not that it's "fixed eventually".

if they want us to beta test this product, and expect us to keep it in its current state, they can darn well refund the money we spent to have the dubious privilege.
When a PC is shipped many of them have issues right out of the box, the OS often needs to be patched to fix issues, Drivers need to be updated.

Yes it can be upgraded and changed it also can run as-is.

You can still get the HR10-250 as a DVR, yes I realize that for some this isn't optimal as they want the MPEG4. Yes I do know the DVR has issues (some have more then others) Yes it needs to be fixed.

I think this thread should be over. We are getting nowhere here and it's just getting deeper and deeper.

Wonder why. Perhaps because motherboards aren't the general consumer goods your fellow moderator is trying to argue they are.
No it's because other stores are buying in higher quantities and are thought of before these stores when looking for these items which in turn hurts their bottom line. Argue all you want, they are both opinions.

Yeah. Mine just happens to be shared by the industry at large, that's all.
