In one forum, the opinion was that sales for the Recast were lower than Amazon's expectations and the future was not bright. I hope not. I've kept this device on my Amazon "List" because, once the external hard drive capability was added, it was pretty much everything I wanted. What kept me back was thinking that a "final" improvement would be to allow 1080p recording v. 720p. ATSC 3.0 enables 4K Codecs and high quality audio, so if Amazon added a pair of ATSC 3.0 tuners and 4K recording, the device would be ideal. If sales have indeed been slow, perhaps it's because other people, like me, thought it was behind the technology curve, a little bit. I'd pay more for an ATSC 3.0 device. I hope Amazon is seeing a big potential market for this device for those of us with 4K TV's without an ATSC 3.0 tuner. That's pretty much all of them, to date. I'm not going to leave behind my Sammy 82Q90R just because it doesn't have ATSC 3.0 tuners. I'd buy a Fire TV recast with ATSC 3.0 tuners in a heartbeat and I bet there is a substantial market for people like me.
