My guess in no, they announced it as CES last year with a summer release and from what I've read they haven't gone into production yet. Nick won't give ETAs because they never meet them, I used to think it was just an issue with the software side of things on the DVR but it seems like both HW and SW have serious management issues.

I asked the same question yesterday and many times before about any updates on the Prime 6 in other threads... Anytime we ask about the Prime 6, they never comment or give a clue as to updates on this product that seems so promising. Last I read, they don't even have it in production yet, so why put up a product page for it? I love the hdhomerun prime i have now and as soon as the 6 is released I plan to immediately buy it. The problem is, they tell us it'll be released mid 2018 when they really have no clue as to when it will be released. Some others on the forums say us cablecard subscribers are complaining about not getting any updates, which is ridiculous. If you're in an area where OTA TV is basically non existent like I am, I need the cablecard product for more tuners. The coming soon page was a tease at this point. It really makes you wonder if they even care about us cablecard customers anymore with their premium TV service available now. :(

I don't know if it's a coincidence or just bad luck, but after I posted my last message on this thread my DVR subscription was turned off and I had to buy a new one then uninstall and reinstall the service. That right there has me a little concerned about if I even want to stay with them anymore. Definitely not happy with this development. :evil:

I would be *astonished* if the company, even if somehow motivated to do so (if they decide your post violates the forum rules, it is "removed by moderator"), was so on top of it to be even able to quickly take such action(s). More likely your subscription just expired at the wrong time. Correlation is not causation.

bump... doubt he'll respond but everyone knows Nick reads these post. How do you screw up so badly that the old stock is gone and you don't even have an eta for the new model?

Maybe there just isn't enough demand for this product and other products have been prioritized. I dont see how it could be so technically different from the 3 channel model to account for this delay.

If the change is anything like the Connect to the Connect Duo and Connect Quatro change, it's actually a whole new chipset, meaning different hardware all together.

Think of it as the difference when the Mac went from PowerPC to Intel x86; it's a whole new chipset to work with. (Granted the changes are probably not as radical, but there is a difference, and new hardware boards need to be built, and new firmware written to interface with the new and different chips.)

How is that a plus? All that means instead of in the near future, it may be November or December.

They promised mid-2018 before and that meant nothing.
