Chris Pirillo did a live unboxing of it in front of about 600 people at 11.21PM Seattle time, he is going to test the DVR Station next, try connect it to his Tivo system, see if he can get the list of digital channels in the electronic program guide.
So we’ll look forward to more coverage by Chris Pirillo, I think he is one of the biggest geek technology influences of the silicon valley and he has for the past couple of years been building his own Technology TV station streaming live 24 hours a day using Ustream with 8000 members of his community and hundreds of people constantly viewing his live show at http://chris.pirillo.com/live/
