I'd "guess", as the whole software adaptation is a new world, the ETA of the IceTV miniPC PVR is three months maximum as Dan and I are about three weeks from initial testing of two units, then we'll give out three more for independent customer testing once our own testing establishes stability. The target price is $449 1 x dual tuner, and approx $145 for an extra dual tuner. but the upward creep of chip prices makes that uncertain.

My understanding is, that for free to air TV transmissions, Enigma2 recording devices merely record the program as broadcast, either in MPEG 2 transport stream, or H.264 transport stream. Program information is in a separate file, *.eit, which (as I understand it) a "standard" way of dealing with program information. DLNA is supported, as are other networking protocols.
I record programs on my Beyonwiz (which uses Enigma2), transfer them to my PC, remove pre and post padding and adds using VideoRedo, use TFtool to convert the *.eit file to *.inf file and create *.nav file so they can be played on my Topfield PVRs like native recordings. With the Beyonwiz, through the support for DLNA, you can watch programs recorded on one Beyonwiz on another Beyonwiz. You can also watch them on PC.

pardon my ignorance on this. Enigma is new to me. But what format would the recordings be in?
Just wondering if the hardware will need a HDMI connection, or if it will play back over dlna, or infuse on Apple TV for that matter. Infuse has handled every file type I have thrown at it so far, including EyeTV. DLNA seems to be file specific for TV systems? Can I export the recorded files to another os? Convert to another format? Ignorant? Yes. But curious.
