    Nothing much known yet but it is starting out with bold claims. It will have to be very expensive based on the product description.

    Looks interesting. Three questions came to my mind that I didn't see answered as I browsed their web site:

    1) Price?

    2) Is there a web browser?

    3) Does Hulu work with this?

    I'd also like to see the hardware specs. It would be interesting to know what kind of processor it uses.

    Good questions and I don't have any answers. I do expect it will be direct competition for the Ceton box which we know a lot more about based on this preview described here.

    Ceton previews multi-room DVR and Echo extender (hands-on) -- Engadget

    I don't know that there is any market for a high priced DVR/Media Center but who knows, maybe these products will actually be released and we can see what happens.

    We do plan on pricing this "competitively" with "comparable" devices.

    Browser -Of course

    Streaming services - TBA

    Hardware specs are coming... you won't be disappointed.

    Almost four months after the announcement, still nothing much is known? I hope he was able to obtain funding to make this product a reality but I would be very surprised if it happens.

    The site mentions playing Android games via BlueStacks, which may indicate that its just a Windows box.

    I believe the product announced, the Delta DVR was going to use Windows Media Center within Windows embedded but Microsoft killed Windows Media Center for products like this with Windows 8. I think the product was therefore dead before launch. What might be planned now that Windows Media Center Windows 8 embedded doesn't exist? I have no idea, probably nothing.
