I think in a nutshell this means free HR34's for everyone.
I think the real issue is do you want...
A) Have H25's in the additional rooms and have an additional free tuner and loose the ability to pause live.
B) Put the RTU clients in each room, tie up a tuner on the HR34, but have full DVR functions.
I personally think the 5 tuners spread out over 4tv's is better than Dish networks 3 tuners over 4 tv's with prime time 24.
Also looks like new software is rolling out for the HR34, and I think the ad skipping stuff will be turned on depending on the outcome of the Dish lawsuit.
Overall a win win for Directv
