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 i...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

We were too optimistic in our original ETA, yes, and people are right to scold us about that. However, please understand that there are various factors at play, most of which we can't talk about publicly at this time. I don't blame anyone for not holding their breath about the 2019 internal deadlin...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

And that make no diff if Cable Labs doesn't approve it Are you suggesting that Cable Labs' approval process takes 2+ years? Because I highly doubt that. This was poor planning on the part of SD. Period. It is nice of you to stick up for SD. They do make great products. They just need to focus more ...

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...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

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

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

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm looking forward to Lon Seidman's annual interview with Ted Head at CES 2020 so we can hear Ted promise the Prime 6 sometime in late 2020.

Prime 3 and 6 is legitimate way just like when using an analog capture device to record
You seem super smart and stuff. But just FYI there is no Prime 6. Hence this entire conversation.

I’ll take my chances with Channels...

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

After over A YEAR AND A HALF of SD dragging their feet, I've lost interest in the Prime 6. There is no significant hardware improvement over the Prime 3. And in fact, the 3 has gigabit ethernet and the 6 will be downgraded to 100 Mbps. Now that Channels has TV Everywhere integration, there really is...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

In practice, 100Mbps should be fine. If you are streaming multiple HD action streams (like several sports channels), then you might saturate the feed for a bit. But realistically it probably won't be a problem. @rpcameron - Thank you for your input. Unfortunately, "probably won't be a problem" defi...

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

That's actually a great question! Nate and Jason - What is the maximum amount of bandwidth that could be needed by 6 concurrent HD streams?

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Thank you Nate and Jason. Is it correct that the network interface is actually slower than the previous model? What would be the reasoning behind that?

Re: 6 tuner prime soon !!!

Other than the addition of 3 more tuners, what will be the difference between the Prime and the Prime 6? Faster processor? More memory? Faster/better channel switching?

HDHomeRun Prime 6 update?

With Premium TV now off the table, can you give us any idea when the Prime 6 might be available? Even if just a general "within the next three months" would be sufficient. Thanks in advance!
