I also heard from KFMB after complaining about bad lip sync problems and they said , "I don't see CBS doing much more HD programming in the near future.....

Actually, going by the HiPix HDTV PC recording solution, it takes about 8 GB/hour for HD, so a 160 GB drive should provide around 19-20 hours of recording.

The technology is here to be able to do
HDTV PVRs but the content and potential customers
don't yet justify the expense to market such
a beast. We _will_ see HD PVRs in the next
couple of years as there is more content and
more people aware of the benefits of HDTV
(and cheaper displays).
|The HiPix stores all of the program stream|
regardless of how much "padding" exists in
the ATSC packets. So the recordings take
about 8gb/hr even if they are NTSC upconverts
letterboxed with 4:3. The 19.3MBit/sec
spec is "fixed"... They don't reduce it or
increase it for different programs.

The last I heard Dish was going to release an HD PVR in late 01 or 1st qtr 02. Has this project been canceled?
