"The same powerful HD Guide as the HDPVR 630" - How exciting! :sleep

No home network feature, still only two tuners, no OTA tuner... :crying2

Not that I really expected anything much from Shaw Direct. I'll just keep using my 630's...

I looks like they just swapped the component video out for the wifi and added a larger her drive.
They dropped component video out, well that was dumb since I use component out from to my HD-PVR to record stuff. I like to save shows and edit out the commercials. Adding wifi, big deal. Having two tuners would have been a killer so Shaw, let's get into the 21st century and beef up your lousy receivers. The larger HD 1TB (larger would have been better but it's a start) is a nice feature. Who can forget the beefy EPG, boring.....
