Do any of you think that Sling functions will make their way into this device?

check out this post form TWICE:

http://www.twice.com/articletype/news/channel-master-dvr-adds-slingbox-support/109094

I think it makes sense since Echostar owns Sling.

I would check if the statement is true, if someone will connect such sling-boxes to PC and would publish VID_XXXX & PID_XXXX of these
post #154 of 3123

And once again the countdown timer is gone from the CM site.

 

Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this but do any of these PVRs have analog input such as component so that they can be used as a general purpose recorder for all sources including those originating from HDCP controlled sources?

post #155 of 3123
I just got a call from Joe at Channel Master.

My order for the CM-7500, 3TB drive, wireless adapter, infra-red extender, and 3-year warranty has been canceled.

They have no product to ship.

The pages that were previously viewable on the web site were not supposed to be available for the public to see yet.

Update from him is that the product is still in the works, and is not finalized yet, things are still being changed on it.

He said the release goal is for the first quarter of next year, and I should look for them to notify me then when it's available. Expect nothing before January 1st.

Joe, if you see this (and I assume you at Channel Master are following this) please have someone from your company join the discussion here and keep us updated.

We're all drooling to see what this is capable of, and as you have found out, some of us are very eager to get our hands on one.

You wouldn't happen to have a couple free samples of these to be sent out to be beta tested, would you?

nope, no encoders inside - just check specs of STi7109 (or any CPU inside of other DVR/PVR)
post #157 of 3123

Well, I guess the component to HDMI devices are around but do any of these boxes allow recording from an HDMI input (non-HDCP)?

No. They are made to record by spooling the digital transport stream of the broadcast source.

If you want analog input capability you need to buy either a PC capture device like the Hauppauge HD-PVR (HD or SD recording) or a DVD recorder (SD recording only).
post #159 of 3123

Yeah, for PC-free general input HDD recording looks as though you have to go pretty low tech like the Avermedia. At least it's cheap at BestBuy, etc.

Thanks for giving me a little off-topic bandwidth.

That may even be optimistic. Remember it took almost a full year for the DTV Pal DVR to come out after announcement.

Does anyone have more news on the possible guide data for this? This is all I could find on the Rovi website:

.pdf description of TotalGuide: http://www.rovicorp.com/webdocuments/product_literature/rovi-totalguide-ce-product-details.pdf?link_id=

From the investor relations site, news that the Xbox One will use Rovi data: http://ir.rovicorp.com/file.aspx?IID=4206196&FID=20816712 Quote from release: "Rovi Corporation ... will supply data for the TV electronic program guide experience, OneGuide on Microsoft's Xbox One."

Hopefully this will last longer than the TVGOS data did on the DTVPal DVR.

I can only tell you that the guide information is supplied by Rovi over the Internet and it is a 14 day guide. I have no information on whether or not the guide information will be free, but I will find it very surprising if there is not a nominal subscription fee associated with a 14 day guide like there was with the CM-7400. If the guide is coming directly from Rovi and not through a 3rd party (like with the CM-7400) it speaks well for its continued availability. Of course, nothing is ever certain -- you pay your money and take your chances.
post #164 of 3123
perhaps E* still have legal leverage of ROVI as before ?

It's interesting that the last item indicates that the address space allows up to 3GB HHD upgrade for those who wish to change the internal HHD to a larger unit.

I hope the name doesn't cause a conflict. There already is a "DVR Plus" on the market.

http://www.optimum.com/digital-cable-tv/dvr/dvr_plus.jsp
post #171 of 3123
It will probably be referred to as the "Channel Master DVR+" (model CM-7500GB16 or CM-7500GB320)
or possibly the "CM-7500 DVR+"
post #172 of 3123
That name reminds me of the VCR+, or, as I think it was redundantly labeled, the VCR Plus+.
post #173 of 3123
I think "DVR Plus" is a service, not a physical DVR. But the name is close enough to cause confusion, possibly.

Not sure what CM thinks the "+" is. The only thing I can imagine is Vudu - but the CM-7400 had that and they didn't call it a "DVR+" confused.gif
post #174 of 3123
The links I posted about the DVR+ name takes you to the Channel Master Authorized Dealer page now, so I'm deleting the post.

Very sleek only 1/2" high.

I didn't see a model number--CM was really pushing the model as

It's listed right under the price as "Product Code: CM-7500GB16 ".

Merry Christmas!

Thank you, I've placed my order.

Changes from the earlier page posted in November:

Price on Seagate backup drives has been increased.

Extended warranty backed down from 3 years to only 2, and the price increased.

Price for the IR extender decreased.

post #179 of 3123
This thing looks pretty sweet, I sure hope it works. I'll be watching reviews.
post #180 of 3123
What's to stop Tivo from suing these guys until they pull or cripple this? It's a dvr, and it has a guide via internet. That's usually all Tivo needs for a target...

I hope it works, because I want one...
