We're not sure where Earl from DBSTalk
got these scans, but we're so excited to get some official confirmation that this device exists
, that we really don't care. The HDPC-20 is a dual tuner device that connects via USB to your PC and allows you to record and watch DirecTV programming on your computer -- and curiously includes an Ethernet port. It supports Vista Media center,
but also appears to work with the regular flavor of Windows
. What might be the best news is that from what we have here, there is no indication that it will have a OEM requirement like its cable equivalent. There isn't any word on price or availability, but after two years of waiting,
we'll find a way to hold on for a little while longer till this thing hits the streets.
Picture of the rear and more details after the jump.
