Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Dare I ask if the current work on the UI has influence on the timeline of the Prime 6? Not really. One uses react libraries and web development, the other is mostly engineering and cablecard stuff.

Re: When the Prime 6 comes out, how many are you planning on getting

I was thinking I would get one for sure but the longer this drags on the more I think I might skip it, it will probably depend on price. I have one prime and a dual OTA. It seems like the cable channels repeat the same programming so often that if I hit a recording conflict or no tuner I can just re...
