My thoughts the same. I was comtemplating if I should get a DM500si now, but the PVR is a just wonderful making it very attractive. March release was just my guess, I also heard someone mention as early as mid January 2006.
I was hoping someone would know more about this product and release date.
"The "new" DM 500 PVR has a pluggable plug & play single tuner either for DVB-S, -C, and –T"
