Had a salesperson stop me in Sam's Club the other day trying to sell me Directv. When I mentioned their lack of a dual tuner receiver he said to just wait. Are they coming out with their own to compete with Dish?
That statement didn't clarify anything. I think you mean "Dual [Discrete] Output."
How's this for size, though; eight outputs. The HR24 is the industry's first RVU compliant Satellite DVR. It will have somewhere between four and eight tuners, and will work with a special RVU multiswitch that is sort of a combination of an SWM mutiswitch and a home ethernet switch. To connect an RVU TV (Samsung and Sony are both members), all you have to do is run coax from the TV to the multiswitch, and that single coax will carry a high-speed (HD) Video-IP connection between the TV, multiswitch, and HR24 receiver. Not only will the TV display the DirecTV interface, but it'll command one of the HR24's tuners directly, nevermind display the HR24's recorded events.
It's crazy hot, and I'd be surprised if Dish comes out with anything that directly competes. Dish seems to be focused on these ad-hoc solutions, as opposed to DirecTV who's fully centralizing the DVR.
What is the purpose of this question? As of Feb 1st there is virtually no savings on dual tuner receivers. The 222 that you specifdically mention is HD on only one output and SD on tuner 2. Directv offers SD receivers FREE to new customers. Each H-2X HDTV receiver from Directv has HDTV outputs and cosy $5 for additional lease fees.
