I am using the HS2. It gives me DVD quality at 480p when I record an HD program.Technut said:
Your assumption is quite correct. You need to tuners to do that. Yes, the VCR style recording is correct with my HS2. The way I do it is that I use the program planner on the VOOM stb. This takes care of the conflict on the VOOM box. Then I do the same on the HS2. Both clocks need to be syncronized in order to work.FredOh said:Does any dvd have the ability to record a program while you are watching another channel on VOOM. I assume not. Are you only limited to VCR style recording, like when you are away. WHat happens when you are watching something and a scheduled recording conflicts?
I assume you are asking about DVR (not DVD). Yes, the future VOOM DVR is supposed to have this capability: you will be able to watch one channel while recording another one. This is because it will have two satellite tuners.FredOh said:Does any dvd have the ability to record a program while you are watching another channel on VOOM.
Let me try... Will it have firewire?GAWD187 said:Oh yeah, and the dvr will allow one to record up to 2 channels and watch a third. The dvr will also be able to record in true HD,unlike this other DVR, 480 progressive is only dvd quality and not true HD.
So it looks like what I heard is right? Good to hear.GAWD187 said:Oh yeah, and the dvr will allow one to record up to 2 channels and watch a third. The dvr will also be able to record in true HD,unlike this other DVR, 480 progressive is only dvd quality and not true HD.
GAWD, speak to me from onhigh the mountain, please. What is with the rumors of the $20 extra to rent the PVR? This rumor is running rampant in the other threads and it either needs to be squished or verified because many people are pissed at Voom but I haven't seen an official post about the price yet. Any word on this?GAWD187 said:i work for voom, there is no list. there is just a note on your account about your interest in DVR.
Just called VOOM and got put on the list for the dvr. The CSR said the cost has not been determined yet but he thought it would be about $5 per month and that you are not "locked" into any commitment by being put on the list; i.e. you can refuse it when it becomes available.kawdog said:But what does being put on the list cost? Are they going to put me on the list then charge me $1000 dollars to my credit card when the DVR comes out. I don't know what I am talking about but it just sounds like something that would happen between me and VOOM
