Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

Now, not sure what I will do. Don't want to buy 2 PRIME 3s. I was in a similar situation. Had a couple of TiVo Premieres that provided enough tuners between them (4x2) and storage (2TB). The wife factor was a huge motivator/requirement. We pulled the trigger on 2 Primes and couldn't be happier, yes...

Re: Beginner Q: Which model is right for me?

I'm in the bay area too, and have a spare Connect Duo I'd be happy to let you use if you wanted to try it out before purchasing.

Re: HDHomeRun Prime across a VPN

I'm using a userspace implementation of Wireguard inside a Docker container (no host kernel changes required), and that works well for phone/laptop and all the apps (HDHomeRun, Channels, Plex, etc).

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

guess what, 90%+ of those people would complain anyway regardless of what you do ^ this, so much this. I'll also chip in with some thoughts (FWIW), being relatively new to SD and it's products, I totally get that you can only make so much $$ from a hardware product with a limited userbase. The requ...

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

What would be awesome, would be a 3D printed chassis that supported a modular interconnect. So if someone buys a couple of Prime 3’s, they could take the boards and put them into a single chassis.

Basically a hacked together prime 6 (albeit requiring a couple of CableCards).

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

What's it called when all toes/fingers are crossed that this means it's not canceled?

Re: Is the PRIME 6 soon to be released?

FWIW, there's clearly ongoing demand amongst existing CableCard customers - just look at the price of Prime 3's on eBay. The question becomes, is it worth it from a pure business perspective to continue investment; unfortunately only SD knows this for sure. If the hardware is complete (appears it m...

Re: Recording DRM

I think we're owed an explanation Fine for you to think that, completely different thing if anyone else agrees. it would not be possible unless done via hardware I for one am happy that SilliconDust believes it can be done exclusively in software and doesn't require a hardware-based solution: https...

Re: Recording DRM

Personally, I’d be 100% ok if SilliconDust enabled recording of the encrypted stream. That would allow them at a later time to solve for the HDCP problem. Losing all the drm content goodness is what’s annoying.
