I would still spring for the 630 since having one tuner would be a real PITA.I bet you that you WILL be able to record (externally) with the 605 from the get-go and thats the reason they are holding it back b/c most people would go for the cheaper option (instead of forking out for the 630) since it'll be PVRable as well.
It is if you already have a few unused drives laying around! I got enough free space that I could spare a drive for some PVR fonction on a 605! At 199$ I agree that it too close to the 630 price but at a lower price point like 99$ that another story!Assuming the 605 does have recording abilities, $199 for a single tuner 605 and $100 for a 1TB drive isn't such a great PVR deal.
not sure why I cant wait, if there was no 630 Id be happy with my 505 but now that its out..... ordered it Sunday. got a sweet deal to boot.i have a 505 that i can't wait to trash/smash/crash etc.. since it's new i hated it why because of it's dinosaur dvi plug.. now the 630 is out and i won't be waiting for it, shure it will be less costly to get the 605 but look at the deals we can all haveon the 630+ it records! so i went for it! will be getting a new 630 .no more time to wait for the 605.. will see when the 630 will be giving me some headache!
