Yes I know it will be more than $200, but they may make a stripped model for people who don't want all the bells and whistles.

Six tuners and a 2TB drive. Yes, I think you can safely say it will be pretty far north of $200. Maybe a "stripped down model" will only have 3 tuners -- but that will still be north of $200. And actually, I don't see any mention of ATSC tuners for OTA in any of the write ups or in the Ceton thread. It looks like a cable card device -- a super Moxi, if you will.

Do you really expect to get a multi-tuner HD DVR for the price you paid for your Magnavox single tuner SD DVD recorder that programs like a VCR? That is just not realistic.

Yes, yes I do. Edit: Heat of the moment loss of composure.

All pissing aside, what is the point now of this thread?
There doesn't look to be a market or product under $100, but for $200 and up there is.

Wow, I really need to get a life. This banter is not going to help anyone so I will just leave it at that.

^^I think so. You have passed the bounds of polite, rational discourse.
