Hello,


New to this forum, I did a search on the above but was not able to find much on it. I know my Mitsubishi dealer uses one to show the 1080p demo loop on his new TV's. He received this from Mitsubishi. I was able to borrow one and it worked great on my set. I have a copy of the manual and pictures of it inside and out if anyone is interested.

Indigita AVHD IEEE 1394 hard disc drive


I was hoping someone else might have one and could tell how well it works for recording?


thanks,


Kipp

a few key points from the literature that make me think the public won''t easily get them, unless a major mfg offers the in their branded product line:


A fully customized FireWire DVR solution for OEMs

Private labeling and individually optimized software


The AVHD Powered by Indigita is a custom digital PVR/DVR solution for consumer electronics (CE) and set-top box (STB) original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

I saw a Mitsubishi 1080p set at Fry's in LA last week showing 1080p material. I had wondered what they were using as the rest of the sets were on HDNET via Dish, but I did not follow the wires as I didn't have the time.


After your research, I am sure that is what they must have been using.

Fry's in Sunnyvale are most certainly using one of these on their Mitsi display.


The Samsung 1080p DLP TVs are using a Samsung AVDisk, so that one might be easy to get hold of...???


Cheers!

You're absolutely right, it makes it sound like they are just for OEM, but a fellow poster on the Mits forum, states that he has bought a couple of them, and has also given me the contact name and number, I plan on contacting the person tomorrow and get the specifics.

This thing looks similar to Toshiba Symbio AVHDD. Toshiba states that it only works with their TV's but it is not true. It works with most firewire equiped TV's that have AV control.

Do you have one?? If you are not using it on a Toshiba, what are you using it on?


thanks,

I did get a hold of Chris at Indigita, he was able to give me some more info as well as an email address, so I can ask some more questions.


Prices are as follows:


250 Gb 499.00

160 GB 399.00


It cannot hook up to a computer apparently. Although I know that the ones the Mits dealers are getting come with the content already on the hardrive, (they had to get it on there somehow)


It does support 4 streams of video, so you can be recording one thing, watching something else on one TV, and then another, etc.


I have scanned a copy of the manual, and have screenshots of the unit, inside and out.


Well that is all I have for now....

What's the difference between that and a RCA DVR2160?

I just received one fairly cheap, but I can't get it to record

off a firewire equipped Scientific Atlantic 3250hd.

I can get a Indigita for fairly cheap, its one of the Mits dealerships units with only a 40 Gb hardrive, but if I can't hook it up to my computer, then I really don't have anyway to put 1080p source on it...this is what I would like to do and then feed it into my 1080p mits TV. I was also wondering if I put a larger hard drive in it, if it would reformat the drive correctly and still work.

What this looks like. Notice the lack on make and model on the front. Also notice "DVR 10" on the rear panel;

For the meat and potatoes. Unfortunately, the pic of the 'important part' doesn't show the chipset. I will see if I can get a better pic. Not a whole lot there w/o the HDD;

The few posts are pages from the users manual.

Generic 1394 connection info. If you have a device that used 1394, you rpobably have seen this before;

The next attachments seem to be addressed for the Mits sets with Net Command, but could apply for the other manufactures as well;
