We are getting all of these names from ces announcements. check out (https://twitter.com/HDHomeRun_US)
Looking at this twitter page, the picture of Lon Seidmans interview shows 4 items on the table. Is the reason the interview won't be shown until later this week because of other announcements not made yet?

Also the next picture down of another interview shows 2 items, one which is a larger cube. What could that be?

In the picture one is the quatro, the two new devices and the prime6. 3 of them are standing up. I don’t see a cube.

If it is the picture I think being referred to (not the lon one, but one from dmz) it was showing a scribe compared to a recast

If I was in the market I'd be most interested in a Quatro with integral DVR, HDMI and S/PDIF outputs. But, since I've already invested over $1k in Quatro + NAS + streamers: I'm not.

I do not see any of these competing with the recast 4 tuner.... unless they have a 4 tuner one with remote viewing.
Recast works if you use FireTV exclusively. IMHO FireTV is too Amazon centric of an OS and we will never buy them unless that changes. That makes recast worthless to us.

If I had nothing right now I would buy a Servio and Quatro and get PTV. The only thing missing is my wife’s Hallmark Channel which is currently my least favorite channel because of how much of a PITA it is to get it w/o spending a bunch of money.

Personally, I have other reasons for Hallmark being my least favorite Channel :lol: however, I have a few friends who also want to stream Hallmark (non cable households). The cheapest service appears to be ...Phil.o... at $16/mo??? What are you using?

Also, is it Serviio? Or Servio? Edit: Ok, now I understand...didn’t realize it was a new SD device.

Depends on what you are asking... Serviio (2 i's) is the existing media streaming server. Servio (one i) is the SiliconDust product while Servio (also one i) was a name for a bay area company that produced CloudCrowd but think it was absorbed by CrowdSource 5 or so years ago.

Though I am heavily invested in the prime and wouldn't mind a prime 6, given how long we have waited they might as well announce an atsc 3.0 tuner this year :) as I would find that much more attractive than either the servio or scribe.

If I didn't have anything, maybe the Scribe might be of interest...but still probably not. I use Kodi a lot for watching movies, and even use it sometimes for watching HDHomeRun recordings (closed captions play so much better). I wouldn't want a separate box for Kodi. The ability to copy files to a Windows-style share on the Shield is a huge plus as well.

The openness and flexibility of HDHR files is a great benefit. If the DVR solutions don't have a way to get to those files, it would lose that benefit.

I am taking an unofficial poll of which people are more interested in. The scribe duo (duo with 1tb drive) or the prime 6. Personally, I am interested in the prime 6.
I think the past years worth of posts will tell you this answer. The Scribe was announced last year as the Duo+ along side the 6 tuner Prime, and for well over a year I haven't seen many question about when the Duo + will be released, but I have seen multiple topics asking where the Prime 6 is.
