It would be great to use the current HDVR board and just make up a new wiring harness for the 6000. Guessing that is possible. This way, Richard could greatly simplify the hardware design and then just concentrate on a connection scheme. From the customer's point of view, we could have a significant 169Time hardware investment and then when the desire is to switch to an E* service, just purchase a wiring harness and plug in the HDVR board after unplugging it from the DTC-100. Slick right?
For those of you who don't know, the HDVR board with the 2 1394 jacks is removable and a plug-in wiring harness is what connects it to the MB in the DTC-100. Richard designed it this way so one could send back the board for upgrades rather than having to send back the whole DTC-100. He also has a bypass connector that connects up so the DTC-100 is enabled when the HDVR board has been removed. A design like this makes so much sense if it can be done for E*.
PS- Glad all of you have had great success with the B3 software. Since I don't use the AVX except for HDNet, which records perfectly, I haven't had the need for installing it yet. When I get more time I'll play with it but interest may only be to add stability for the menus and guide info. In the mean time I will be on the sidelines.
