This "reading between the lines" when there's nothing else to read into is one of the reasons companies don't answer questions about future products, BTW.

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Nothing, except there is no need for DRM recording when using OTA tuners. And since SD has stopped manufacturing of the Prime 3, and the Prime 6 is shelved for now, SD does not presently sell any device that needs DRM recording. Since the previous comment from Ned seems to imply that SD won't expen...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Reading between the lines: Since the Prime 3 is EOL, and SD essentially has no CableCARD product to make further developing DRM support for their DVR financially viable ("Why develop software for hardware they do not sell," to paraphrase Ned's post), don't expect DRM recording any time soon. If the...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

You're confused. :shock: your the one don't get why it's necessary to tie recording protected content to the Prime 6 as is not up to Silicon Dust they only follow the rule set by law just like with HDMI and HDCP carp so you need to lean to deal with it or fine work around and if you can't well sorr...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

And they refuse to explain why it's necessary to tie recording protected content to the Prime 6. There's no reason to do that. It's simply a delay tactic. If I'm wrong, explain it. Did you ever hear of Digital Millennium Copyright Act and RIAA and MPPA then the FCC Rule and Local channel and all ot...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Jason and Ned, I'm still excited for the prime 6. The prime 3 serves we well right now but I see need for a 6 in the future. That being said has SD considered a Kickstarter campaign? I know it sounds wierd especially at this point but maybe it would be the way to go. Hear me out. It would allow SD ...

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

You should not bee seeing units fail like that. There are no known issues or "generations". The HDHomeRun PRIME (and all newer models) are specifically designed with high quality ceramic capacitors to ensure that there are no lifespan-limited components inside the HDHomeRun. Other consumer electron...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

And... if SD was transparent and forthcoming all along, people would be much more understanding. But that statement is very self-serving. It was already acknowledged by SD personnel that the Prime 6 was "put on hold" when they were working on Premium TV and other projects. That because of mounting ...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Are you not reading along? The PRIME 6 is not happening in 2019. NedS said "I don't blame anyone for not holding their breath about the 2019 internal deadline, but that's still the only information I have and am allowed to say about the PRIME 6's progress." This is the biggest problem I have with S...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

shspvr - The Prime 6 was announced 2 years ago, and was originally promised to hit the market in mid 2018. Here is an article to refresh your memory: https://zatznotfunny.com/2018-01/silicondust-doubles-down-on-cablecard/ After TWO years, it's pretty safe to say that nobody in this thread is being ...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

The thing was announced last year and in multiple threads, the response from staff is "end of 2019". How much patience is people supposed to have? While we still have a little over 2 more months, I'm not getting any warm and fuzzies. I want to get a couple of these so I can return some cable cards ...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

I'm confused about your choice of words here, are you suggesting that you have other information that you aren't allowed to share? Well it's rather obvious If there is a hold-up with cablelabs or anywhere else in the pipeline, wouldn't it be better to go ahead and announce that and change the "comi...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

And your point is ? my guest is they don't have greenlight to start selling to any one so in tell that happen every one's is SOL and SD is out a big wad of cash. This might come as news to you, but SD announced the Prime 6 almost TWO years ago. If they had their ducks in a row they would have start...

Now that we're in Q4, is SD going to change the Prime 6 release date to 2020??? This company is a joke.
