I do find it curious that they've elected to include the 921 remote. I was expecting something more in line with a silver version of the 322 remote, though I don't mind the dedicated transport buttons. Those extra buttons would certainly be useful if they have a remote code to support the SA Tivos and ReplayTV boxes - which would make sense, now that simultaneous SD output is supported.
I thought that the DVI output was removed from the 811. Also the remote has a button at the top of the second circle of buttons that says DVR, which would lead one to believe that this is the 921 remote.
I couldn't quite make out the labeling on the rear of the unit but it appears there is no RF passthrough. I see 3 RF/coax connectors and surmise that they're for 1) UHF remote antenna, 2) OTA antenna and 3) Dish antenna. This is a disappointment to me, anyway since I'm currently feeding TV's throughout the house via existing coax RF. If anyone knows any better or can make out the printing please share the info w/me :?
You are correct that the 811 (and the 6000 for that matter) does not have a RF output.
I was surprised to see that the 811 doesn't have the two expansion slots. I figured that they would reuse the 6000 so much, that the slots would remain. But they are indeed designed out of the 811. I guess that saved a few bucks in the long run.
hehe, I put my 6000 behind my plasma and I lost (or was real iffy) remote control, even the UHF. I hooked up the "remote" antenna to a short length of coax and was able to put the antenna in front of the plasma while keeping the 6000 behind it. It worked for me.
