12VDC and 27W power consumption is pretty darn good for a directv device.
Alas, no integrated off-air tuner; it'd be really neat if it had a small laptop HD for tivo-like program time-shifting. Also, being a directv device, it wants to periodically "call" using a telephone connection (although there's a "low-speed data" connection for "future" services that may make the phone access obsolete...).
I could also wish for an RF-out; this little guy would be perfect mounted the the bedroom area, and still be used to pipe the signal to a larger main-cabin screen.
I suppose I want it all...
