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

...why they just completely stopped making the Prime 3's... Long story short, the parts supplier making a critical part, I think the tuner, stopped making the part. As a result, there were no more of that critical part available. Since they had to switch to a new part, anyway, that just means they ...

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

Nice to see that it hasn't been abandoned, but I would have preferred for the Prime 3 to not be discontinued until the Prime 6 is ready. As I understand it, one or more of the critical components, such as the 3 tuner part, itself, were no longer being manufactured, so to swap them out, for new piec...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Will the prime 6 support 4k? I assume no but figured I'd ask since I didn't see it mentioned in the product page. Yes and no. Yes, in that it's codec and definition agnostic. It doesn't care whether it's SD, HD, 1080HD, or even 2K or 4K. However, since apparently a lot of 4K is going to be sent ove...

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

Sorry guys, I did get things mixed up in my head. The original Prime does indeed have gig ethernet. I just don't understand why in 2019 anybody would build a video box that doesn't have 1Gbps. Is the cost difference from 100 Mbps that great? 1Gbps has been around for consumers for almost 20 years n...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Thanks Nate! Is there any possibility if the software to allow DRM recording is not ready when everything else is, that Prime could be released without it so those of use without DRM issues can get access to it, Then when the DRM software end is ready, update the firmware and let the next wave of b...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

I freely admit I'm speculating, so take this with a load of salt. Now, that being said, assuming they didn't have production ready by, say, late August/early September for Black Friday/the Christmas Season, they may have decided to hold off on announcing it now, when they either have no where near t...
