Or is there more going on behind the scenes?

Is there any new news on using it with a hard disk or getting HBO-HD off of DirecTV?

That is exactly what I'm waiting for. When DirecTv HD timeshifting becomes available.

Am I the only one who has sent money and an e-mail po but received no response or reply from them despite a few reminder prompts?

I paid to have the mod done. Still waiting, but I'm a patient person. I'd rather wait a little bit if it means receiving a better (all the bugs out)product. It's still a bit of a bummer having missed a few things I would have liked to have had on tape.

Jet-X 02-26-2001 10:50 PM

I sent money in early January and am still waiting. Between this and the Panamorph, I am questioning pre-buying anything any longer.

kelliot 02-27-2001 12:24 AM

I have more confidence in the Panamorph. I'm waiting for the reviews and the upgrades before placing an order. If the Zenith time-shifter comes first I may go with it.

This thing sounds more and more like a Tucker! What's a Tucker? Rent the video, it's good.

kelliot 02-28-2001 09:37 PM

The Panamorph is an anamorphic lens which will hopefully transform from vaporware to hardware sometime soon unless Shawn Kelly decides to emigrate to Panama.

Hopefully it won't stay this stale forever. 169time is even more quiet than Cygnus. Yesterday the Cygnus web site went down and many of us began to panic.

I received a similar email from 169time. It stated that the self installs will ship out begining on the same day as the factory installed units.


Jet-X 03-02-2001 10:42 PM

got a note from 169time, and they need my unit up at their facility by 3/11 for installation. Now I'm excited, and looks like this will beat the Panamorph. Just hoping that DirecTV mod happens too

kelliot 03-04-2001 12:00 AM

Give us a review when you get it.

Having had my check cashed quite some time ago, I'm looking forward to receiving one of those emails from 16x9 myself!

bwiklem, could you tell me when you ordered your mod? I sent my order in as part of that special promo the first week of JAN. and I haven't heard a thing about sending my unit in.Thanks.

I'm waiting too.No email yet.

sabrose 03-04-2001 10:47 PM

I emailed Andy at 169time and he said that the DV mod is ready but the dvhs record mod won't be ready for about a month as it is in final testing

stevesiu 03-05-2001 11:22 AM

Update,just got an email today from Andy to ship my receiver.

rodmanbra 03-05-2001 01:50 PM

I sent them an email which got returned.Besides...i believe you still can not record HBO!!

Jet-X 03-05-2001 10:58 PM


I sent mine (payment) in the first week of January as well..........


Bertil 03-12-2001 03:33 PM

So it should be out sometime soon then.... ?

This whole thing about having to "subscribe" to updates in order to get the direcTV recordability kind of bothers me... Is that some kind of legal issue, or what?

$500 + $150 = $650 to MAYBE get direcTV (HBOHD etc) sounds a little steep... That doesn't mean I don't want it, but I think 650 is more than I paid for the DTC-100 in the first place...

Oh well, it wouldn't be a hobby if it didn' take all my money, right?


kelliot 03-12-2001 09:36 PM

Something about sending money to Reno....

Anyhow, the Panamorph is scheduled to ship next week. Its looking to beat 169time out of vaporware stage.

Ken Elliott

kelliot 03-12-2001 10:28 PM

The only connection is that they are highly anticipated HT gadgets which are way behind schedule at best.

Ken Elliott

Abq-Pete 03-13-2001 05:31 PM

Well, I sent my DTC-100 via Fedex to 169time on Friday and show that they received it yesterday. I guess I should get it back by the end of the week.

Regards, Peter

helfy 03-13-2001 07:25 PM

what is a panamorph?

You don't know and You don't know that you don't know!

kelliot 03-14-2001 11:08 PM

The Panamorph is an anamorphic lens for converting 4:3 into 16:9 aspect ratios for front projectors. There was a prebuy that started last summer. It has yet to be delivered but is scheduled to ship next week. (and the week before that, and the week before that,...)

You HAVE to let us know as soon as you get your DTC-169 http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif back!



Jet-X 03-15-2001 11:20 AM


I sent mine as well (actually the overpriced Thompson version of the DTC-100) by FedEx and mine arrived a day after yours. I'm waiting patiently as well.

Let us know (as will I) when we get them back

dknight 03-15-2001 01:57 PM

I haven't sent my DTC100 in yet because I told Andy that I wanted a minimal amount of down time and he said to wait until I hear from him again, since they are waiting for a part to get in stock (foam pads, or something like that). This was last Thursday, I believe.

I just wish he would be better about answering emails...
