@thenewdc : Generaly, yes. It will be much like their other boxes as they came out.. while they will not stop sales immediately on the older ones, till stock is lower, etc.. they will generally try to push all NEW customers with it.. and convert others as they can.
With the price points GENERALLY being the same.. I don't see why anyone wouldn't.. more storage, performance, etc for the same price.
@ecarlino016: this is something they are working on. where I was, was talking with the VP of content, the guy who is sort of in charge of all the RoD, etc. The main reason is.. the rights paid for the stuff, to the maker of the content, is to view it in PRIVATE, in the home. Their comes into issues when you can remote it that way, it could be played in public where the rights have not be paid for it to be so, etc. This is something they are MAJOR working on right now though.
pretty much ALL boxes (even other providers) are that way.
Each tuner, denotes that you can do ONE thing with it.. either record, or play live TV.
if all the tuners are tied up with recording, they can not play live TV.
But you can play back anything that's recorded at that time.. as it plays back differently, not using a tuner
