target practice

Postby techpro2004 » Sun Jan 20, 2019 3:42 pm

I know there is no set month for the release of the prime 6 but I was wondering what month we are aiming for internally. I understand this is an aiming point and not set in stone. Thanks.

I'd say somewhere between and including January and December. Not officially, just a guess.

Joking aside, we do actually have a target in mind. And yes, it's for this year. :) But a lot of things have to go right for us to hit that target, so for now it's best to leave it at just a 2019 target.

As I said, I understand it is an aiming point and not set in stone. So when are you shooting for roughly. Thanks.

Is that a December with many more than 45 days?(*). I do understand that dates are best not offered, but unless SD plans to pay (a lot?) for a special CL flex wave we already know the approval certification wave dates that are most probable.

When it ships, it ships.



(*) Long experience with companies committing to CY 2Q and not shipping until the middle of CY 3Q (sometimes not until late CY 4Q).

I understand the silence, although I also want to know. But lets say he come out and says not set in stone but we are aiming for March 1. Now you may understand that means the goal but may not come to fruition if something causes a delay... but someone else may come in here March 2 and say what the heck, you promised March 1 you suck for lying blah blah blah. then its this you said mid 2018 and it's 2019 all over again... They cant win, we cant win. it's a stalemate

It's the same situation with the new UI. it was ready in the fall(ish?), they found a big bug and need to rewrite it and people are upset its not out now.

When they announced the Prime 6 this time last year-ish their ambition was mid-year, if I remember correctly.

I am just trying to figure out, beginning middle or end of the year? A family member has cancer and was given a 60% chance. Will she see it or not? Thanks.

I'm guessing they wont give us any target. Best bet and ask specific questions like has the prototype been sent into CableLabs yet, are the tuners and circuit boards designed and ready for manufacture once the approval is given etc, and hope for them to respond.

So here is me asking SD. Has the prototype or nonprototype Prime 6 even been submitted to CableLabs yet for evaluation?

That's a pretty Sh!tty thing to say to someone who has a family member sick and dying. Techpro, I'm sorry to hear about your family member being sick, you have my sympathy.

rrussis82, Thanks for your support. She has been in the hospital for 2 weeks getting chemo. It was supposed to be 5 days.
