Actually, I am excited about the potential of this product. I may not like that it needs to update the software on day one, but it's all for the best.

But hey, did you notice the clouds getting a little lower when Earl posted his first update?

What page in the manual (online version) was the discussion about the buffers?
This manual is small ... 57 pages, and most of is the standard junk about FCC and other stuff.

Alright it is activated...
Time to get going with the playing...

I'll be back in about an hour or so...

Well... just got it activated... and guess what... Getting a message saying that DVR Services not activated... So I am calling back...

Haven't found a way yet to juggle between tuners... but I am hoping that is a DVR Service thing.

Checked my online account, it says: DirecTV DVR_Service_TIVO
For this reciever.... This is going to get intresting I think

How long have you given it? I doubt it's going to be interesting at all. Probably just will catch up and start working?

This review is REALLY going to help me. If Earl gives it an overall then I'll get it as soon as I can. If it turns out to be lacking, I'll wait until future software revs clean it up.

When you have some time (obviously not tonight) try to copy anything off of the DVR to a DVD. That can not copy inhibit message has probably gotten many of us thinking....

By the way, great work Earl.

If you need any help, I'll be happy to give you some. Atleast when it comes to the non-DVR functions. The actual DVR stuff you're going to have to learn on your own.

Someone (Earl ) is going to be a tired boy at work tomorrw, eh?

I imagine several others who will fall asleep with their finger on the refresh button too!

Go Earl Go! Is there a Starbucks close to you?

I am going to go into kind a "blog mode" here... I will try to post to the end every once and a while so people know things have been updated...

As for tomorrow.. I am going to the SQL2005 and Visual Studio 2005 launch event tomorrow (following by bowling)... So I am not going to be home till around 11pm CST... (sorry guys, I hopefully will have wi-fi access at the launch event).
