At $450 USD plus international shipping, I don't think anyone here would be interested.
The specs look good, but what support does it have?

And it's not a US-tuned version, so just like getting a Fortec Passion UK model, it would be a dangerous choice.

. . . and speaking of the Passion . . . I will have to put my ear to the ground.
It's been way too quiet these last few months.
Was the project abandoned? Flushed without another thought?

A Quail goes for $450. If the specs are correct, this thing is a HD DVB-S2 PVR with 4:2:2 and Blind Scan!

I'm with Voom

I didn't see either of these in the specs...???
Neither did I, nor support for diseqc 1.1 (just 1.0 and 1.2 and usals)
Plus the 250gb hard drive limit is quite suspicious.
Either this is an old spec, receiver, or there is something else amiss ... 250gb today is just wrong!

The more I look, the more it looks like a Prototype, not yet for sale or in production.

My bad on the Blind Scan, the other Mfg. units have it, I thought I read it for the 8500 too. DiSEqC is listed under Specs

"Profile Level: MPEG-2 MP@ML, MPEG2 MP@HL, MPEG4 AVC/H.264 HP@L4
"
MP @ HL = 4:2:2
