What ever happened to this card. I was looking forward to purchasing one and it disappeared. Anyone have any news?

Digital Connection is their retail outlet. Cliff Watson (DC) said that he stopped taking orders because his backorder list reached 300 for the Hipix.

Telemann is having trouble getting the parts they need and have not been able to ramp up production.

Have you considered accessDTV?
As soon as it's capability to make perfect recordings from the DISH 5000 is complete, I am selling my Hipix and getting accessDTV.

That product is readily available from DC.

cliff has indicated that the AccessDTV card will (in a soon-to-be-released software update) allow scheduled recordings without a subscription (which makes this card very attractive imo!). the only downside, then, between this and the hipix is that the recordings are "tied" to the particular accessDTV card which created them; ie, you cannot swap recordings.

Actually the software update was released on 4/11/01. It is a simple DLL replacement that enables scheduled recordings without a subscription.
