  • Bob, One thing to keep in mind is that the reason the recordings look exactly like the live stream, is because they are just that - exactly alike. Unlike an external DVR solution, the ViP622 takes the compressed, undecoded stream that it receives from the satellites and stores it. Only when you go to play the recorded program is the stream decoded. An external DVR solution, say a Media Center PC or external TiVo, takes the output from the satellite receiver, re-compresses it, and stores it away for later viewing. Obviously this method degrades the picture quality.

  • I understand about croco = crocodile. It was said tongue-in-cheek as it's not really a crocodile strap. It's leather with a crocodile pattern embossed into it. Similar in nature to those pleather straps that try pass themselves off as real leather.

  • NO ETA on the return of power to our humble domicile. It's strange really the way the power grids are laid out as they seem to meander through the neighberhood. The neighbors across the street, with their cheerful St. Paddy Day ornaments glowing a sickly green, appear to mock us with their display of excess power. They've had power since the morning after the storm. The important thing is that we came through everything a-ok. The same can't be said for a lot of people in the area.

  • I'd also like to point out that reference was made to the fact that we weren't sure of the exact configuration of the machine when it was hacked. There was no attempt made to mislead the reader into believing that the machine was fully secure, no open ports, all patched up, etc.

  • No color for this particular device, but a few companies have announced color e-paper screens within the past couple of months. The question then remains - how long will it take for the color product to reach the marketplace?
