When will these companies see the importanance of true Multiroom viewing. There are many satellite customers that are ready for this and very discouraged that NO one truely (after all these years) has a product that we need.
I'm sure Hava has a very good product for what it is. But when will a company out there finally see the market for Windows Media Center and Extenders as what they really need to be used for. MRV with 3 to 4 different channels at the same time and a resonable price tag. That company will corner the market. If these satellite and cable companys actually polled all their customers I think they woulb be surprised at just how many poeple want this.
The HAVA are a unicasting device. However the wireless HD model can have multiple people wathing the same TV content.
To ask hava to build a device that would allow multiple inputs and multiple outputs to be viewed at teh same time is not liekly to happen..
Lets say you wanted each viewer to stream at 2mb x 5 viewers, do you have that sort of uploading bandwidth to support he streams, most likely not.
There may also be legal issues why this is not done as you would become a broacaster, and you don't have a broadcasting licence do you?
Some things sound simple in nature but in reality are not possible to do. Not that you could not build our own hardware ssytem to do what you want.
