That would be really cool if they 921 could have a 2nd OTA tuner in the future. It would make it compete better with Directv's model. Is it possible for the 921 to record 2 satellite and 1 OTA simultaneously in the future or wouldn't that work ever?
sjhart said:A little off topic, but what kind of countertop is the 921 sitting on? Looks like granite, but I have never seen it inlayed like that. We are going to be replacing our countertop in our kitchen this year and wondered... Thanks!
Foxbat said:Hmmm, let's see...
1) Inlaid granite counter top,
2) Olympus 2040Z camera,
3) $999 for DVR 921,
4) no warranty concerns...
No doubt Robert could afford to live in Tahoe
Back on topic, it would be interesting if someone had internal pictures of the 721 to see if the mobos were close. If the limitation of the 921 to record to record two HD streams at once was a harddrive issue, it would be interesting to see if the hardware could support a second harddrive and addtional 8PSK/ATSC tuners in the free PCI slots.

kls said:The expansion slots are not standard PCI - a regular PCI slot has a long and a short section for the connector, in the 921 it goes short, long, short.
The 921 only recording two HD streams at once is a limitation of the Broadcom 7021 PVR processor they are using - this is the same limitation the HDtivo will have.
I was told the processor is a Via C3, no idea on the Mhz though.

Is there a second drive connector on the IDE cable?
BTW at my website- http://www.tv-shopper.com I have a video of a TV show I did on Granite and Quartz counter tops. It shows some of the Mfg procedures in one part of the show. Requires windows Media 9 and a broadband modem to watch.
