I have always had a hard time seeing how this is any improvement on the Gateway. Now that you say there is no app, I feel even more strongly about it. Man, I use that app all the time! Couldn't imagine going back to a PVR without one. Also, isn't the reason it's not expandable because it supposedly uses VOD more than recording shows? Nice idea, but not everything is on VOD and it seems to be less not more as time goes on. For instance, I wanted to catch up on The Expanse before the new season premiere and I had previously seen that all episodes were on there, but it's gone from the VOD for Space Channel. Seems they also run it on Crave, so viola! it disappears from VOD. There's only 3 series listed on VOD for that channel now. I imagine its the case with more and more shows/channels now. I sure hope they don't drop support for the Gateway anytime soon.
