i hate client server models
anything at the tv should have a tuner.
having a server that is a dvr only is ok, but the client should always have its own tuner for live viewing

I found some California proposition 65 compliant doc and it had an HS17-100 listed as Technicolor genie server on an AT&T document. Went to technicolors site and their recievers look cool with an LCD display. I miss having the time on the box like with cable.

Sorry that was that doc I found. Over at DSLReports forum they think the next server will go headless. I wonder if AT&T has decided to drop that and still go with one that outputs to 4k over HDMI using the Technicolor server?

I bet we see a box that will support IPTV, Uverse and Directv satellite.

This way they only need to worry about 3-4 models of set top boxes. Genie without and with a Dvr and clients and 4K clients.
