Quatro ATSC1 Product availability

Post by JDazell »

Anyone know what's up with the Quatro ATSC1 Products?

I resell these to new OTA cord cutting customers and I have found that the entire online retail channel for Quatro has dried up, unless you want the Connect Quatro 4K.

There are no Scribe Quatro or Connect Quatro to be had.
Recently I have had to resort to purchasing SDs refurbed products from the SD store.

My fear is that these devices are being eliminated and replaced by the Connect 4K (ATSC1/3) devices at a higher retail price and are not yet ready for prime time.

It appears that the Connect Quatro4K is now being paired with the Servio at a price of $329.99, on the SD store page. The Scribe Quatro used to retail at $224.99. This is not a convenient option at ninety dollars more another power brick and another ethernet port.

So back to my question, does anyone know what's up?

Nick,

What is the projected timeline for the release for newly updated Scribe Quatro 4K?
Are there plans to upgrade the other tuner set to 4K, so that all will be (NextGenTV)?
Are there plans to upgrade the DUO product line be upgraded to 4K?

Nick,

Will the Family Product line brochure be updated to reflect the changes? Currently the 4k does not even have a GIF on the page.

Considering there are no ATSC 3.0 OTA broadcasts in the USA right now to my knowledge, seems a bit premature. I get it's a great-to-have when 4k is available but come one, replacing the Quatro with it at a $50 higher price point is nothing but a money grab.

A number of regions have ATSC 3.0 today, with announced plans in 62 markets covering 75% of US viewers.

Cool, so an upgrade path for someone who may decide after the fact that they want to be able to record. Just add a HD and purchase the DRV license.

The Scribe product line continuing with just an ATSC3 tuner upgrade?

The updated US product line:
HDHomeRun FLEX DUO (pending release)
HDHomeRun FLEX 4K
HDHomeRun SCRIBE 4K
HDHomeRun SERVIO

FLEX acts like a CONNECT with no USB HDD attached and acts like a SCRIBE when a USB HDD is attached.
Also note that SCRIBE includes the first year of guide data where as FLEX does not. Guide data is $35/year.

Nick,

When will the website and associated documentation for the newly formed "Family", be updated?
