DRM and Prime 6 / Prime 3 ???

Post by EddieP » Sun Oct 27, 2019 12:58 pm

Since the announcement that the release of a Prime 6 is in doubt ... Is DRM for the Prime 3 still in the works ... or are they tied together Prime 6/DRM ? The only reason I have stuck with the HDHRDVR is the promise of DRM. I have 2 Prime 3 tuners and have no need for the HDHRDVR if there is no DRM in the near future.

They have stated that the Prime 3 will have the same capabilities aside from the quantity of tuners.

I wonder if they would release DRM recording without the prime 6 ...

I do not know what the status is for the software/DRM side of things right now, but I can tell you that DRM recording, and playing back those recordings, is a matter of updating the DVR and viewing app. Both the original PRIME and PRIME 6 will be supported. DRM and PRIME 6 don't actually require each other, but they were logical grouping for internal deadlines.

Both DRM and the Prime 6 are very much still planned. If DRM happens to be finished before the Prime 6, I'd certainly support releasing it when ready, and I can't really imagine a reason why we'd hold it back.

edit: Well, maybe if they were ready within like a week of each other or something, for simplicity's sake. But if DRM were ready like months before, I'd be pretty surprised if it were held back.

How can recording DRM not be ready yet on any platform when nearly two years ago we were told it's release was imminent.

You really can't tell us *nothing* and then say "it's not delayed".
