EchoStar T2200S settop DVR
EchoStar has introduced the T2200S, a cable version of its SlingLoaded DVR that was designed to work with Dish Network. The new device is compatible with any Tru2way cable system and provides standard DVR features in addition to integrated Slingbox functionality. The box features a 1TB hard drive, dual-tuner and Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) support, a built-in DOCSIS cable modem and a SlingGuide search engine.
The Slingbox features will enable access to live or recorded programming from computers or mobile devices, with support for Windows, Mac, Windows Mobile, Symbian and BlackBerry platforms. The company in January announced plans to offer an iPhone client sometime in the first half of the year.
EchoStar has not released pricing information, but suggests the T2200S will be ready for testing by June and likely on the market near the end of the year. [via CNET News]
