This sounds too good to be true! And for $169, the price I paid for
HD3000. And we have person working on it on this list, now how
wonderfull is that?
The picture seems rendered and info on the site seems a bit scarce.
Any other "real" puctures of the back of the unit showing connectors
Also (sorry for bombarding you with questions) I'm assuming the
control of the unit (channel changing and such) is done through
network since there is a mention of IR receiver "to singal you PC"?
1Gb ethernet would have been nicer in this day and age, I'm wondering
why go with 100Mb.
