What is the question about it? As it is a 3rd or 5th gen dvb-c tuner or are you confusing it with an extend. As a third gen it is essentially a prime without cablecard and the oob tuner "repurposed" as a regular tuner.

DVB-C - we are currently testing a firmware upgrade for the HDHR5-4DT which adds DVB-C support. It will be a free firmware upgrade for existing HDHR5-4DT owners and new HDHR5-4DT units will ship with DVB-C support in the future.

This is kind of good news! There is no hdhomerun expand to buy from Silicon Dust or any other marketplace. Should I buy the HDHR5-4DT and wait to get the firmware update to it? Is there any eta to when that upgrade is coming?
Is there any beta program to test it?
