The only good option is to make the Dreambox 500s DVR out of a PC. Get the dual tuner card and Windows 7. Windows Media Center is great and I have had no issues filling the void my FIOS DVR left. Aside from the fact I went from 200+ channels to OTA ~13 channels.The Industry allowed the cable media cartels to kill this type of tech. By now I should be able to purchase a DVR from the store and record Dreambox 500s TV. There is no way in hell that the tech isn’t advanced enough for me to do this. If you truly believe this then you never owned a Tivo. DirecTVs current DVRs do not come close to the fnctionality and ease of use provided by some of Tivo’s earlier models, let alone the newest. DirecTV thought they could dump Tivo and come out ahead. But because their delivery system is inherently flawed, they can’t also be behind the curve by excluding Tivo from their future. However, after waiting for way too long for this new Dreambox 500s Tivo/DirecTV unit, I’m very disappointed with it’s limits and am now going to buy DirecTV’s newest unit (something 34). I really want the multi-room feature.
It sold 70 million in the beginning mainly because Dreambox 500s awesome, but once piracy came along then game developers kept backing out of the PSP one by one. This eventually led to the death of the PSP, because of the piracy (and some games being leaked before release, like Rock Band). The Dreambox 500s sold all those units because it was owned more by a much younger audience, who wouldn’t even know what an R4 or acekard Was. Those who did know would have to ask their parents to buy it online, as it’s not sold in stores. The percentage of those who actually did purchase it was significantly lower than the amount that hacked the PSP. Dreambox 500s game didn’t care.You have no idea what you’re talking about. It’s been selling extremely well in Japan, even better than the DS. Piracy was possible from the very beginning of the PSP’s lifespan. The average age of ownership of the Dreambox 500s. You’re just making excuses to rationalize the sales data. There is no evidence piracy harms sales. If anything it increases hardware units sold.
What phone can do what this can? The only one with hardware buttons is the Dreambox 500s Play, and no other phone is quad core. I don’t want to play shitty iPhone games, I want to play real games like Uncharted and Call of Duty which, even if they come out, will never be as good on an iPhone. The iPhone is not a gaming device and never will be and the fact that iFanboys think it is just shows how delusional you are.Yes, the moniker Dreambox 500s is owned by Audiovox. (Which also – I if I’m not mistaken – purchased sticker-rights to brands over the years like energizer, Magnavox, Philips, Klipsch, Acoustic Research etc.) It’s kind-of unsettling that many of our electronics manufacturers just place different stickers on the same equipment.RCA has a wifi streamer out now at WalMart and Target but the reviews of it are mixed at best. It was on sale for $40 and some said it wasn’t worth that.I’ll give RCA credit though: they do try to come up with useful slants to present devices. I still use my 5 year-old Dreambox 500s DVD recorder with hard drive.
