I understand, but I'm proceeding with the assumption that DRM recording support will be available around the same time as the PRIME 6.
excellent if it is so. given timing is unknown and no real information was given on this, there is nothing else we can do right now other than wait.

Will stay with my connects So, you want to pay for a cable subscription, and box rental (since you'll need a cable box for your cable plan, but you don't want a PRIME), so that you ...

Re: Servio and Scribe

I searched this topic for "264" and it returned no hits so I would ask the question - are new products Scribe Quatro and Scribe Duo transcode the stream as H264?

Re: Servio and Scribe

Yes, please (on FAQs)
