Apparently it has a remote eye that needs to be oriented in a not-necessarily-intuitive direction to have useful range. But what about the remote itself? How big is it? ME or smaller easy-to-lose size? AZBox HD+ size or larger? Similar to Manhattan? Is it some wierd shape like the 922 & 905 had, or the SR1 itself? Does it have a button dedicated to USB device disconnection? What things can it do without opening any menu? An image of it would be nice.
Tiny size and odd shape means making & breaking connections requires two hands even though device could otherwise be located in a barely accessible or non-accessible location, not a positive characteristic.
My experience with pin jacks instead of RCA for analog A/V I/O has been nothing but negative. It's too easy for them to get a tug and lose contact, while the jacks and plugs themselves seem prone to oxidation build-up making them hard to get any connection to start with.
Does this device support EXT2 and/or NTFS, or only FAT32. Does what it supports depend on whether a HD or a stick? If EXT2 and/or NTFS, does it do like Manhattan and arbitrarily split recordings into pieces with an arbitrary 4G maximum size?
Technically speaking and price-wise this device is attractive, but I strongly prefer devices with connections limited to one face with sole exceptions of 1: extra
USB port; 2: CA card slot. For now I think this with three connection faces, and no CBS, and no improvement WRT NBC audio, will be a no-go for me.
I hope Rick will relay my comments to DMS.
