User Guide DSR630

I downloaded the user guide before the link was removed. Is there a way I can post it here?

The 630 looks good. I will buy one as soon as it is available.

Shawdirect In the Dark - Again

How can they say it's the most advanced PVR in Canada. It's no better than Bell's and is far behind Telus with their PVR Anywhere and 3 or 4 channel recording (among other features). A more honest ad would say "We've finally caught up to where our competitors were 3 years ago".

I hope they do the right thing and offer current 530 owners with special upgrade pricing.

Voxxon- It is called Marketing, they don't have to tell the truth. Just look at Rogers saying that they have the Fastest and Most Reliable Speed.

Interesting that they are following a suggested convention for code names for s/w releases.
Since MS Windows 95 was internally known as Chicago, thoughts were it might have been cool to use small Alberta towns.

Since the long awaited Airdrie code never materialized, the page 2 of the manual now clearly shows Drumheller.

Does that means it's the 4th spin???

There is no mention of the SATA port in the user manual. If anything, I guess it will be a future software release .... and we know how long those take.

Yes, but TELUS sued them and won. They can no longer make that claim.

Caught a story on the news last night about a company with fraud convictions in Alberta. The fines were significant.

Might be time to review your provinces Fair Trading Act if you are a victim of the DVR530 to leverage a new DSR630.

320GB eh? Well isn't technology supposed to double every 18 months according to some equation?
Given the number of years since the anemic 160GB showed in 530's, I figure they ought be to 750GB to 1 TB by now.

It means that it will be a dinosaur fossil, right out of the gate.

If its a re-badged DCX3400, Motorola shows MRV and Networking available on that box.

Thanks man. It's now on my HD before Shaw decides it's proprietary info and asks you to take it down.

any front panel pics?

My preliminary pictures showed a truncated 5xx sized box with the same lightpipes, but it was about 11" wide and clack.

I'm really hoping it looks more like the '3400.
