Means absolutely nothing. SD has totally lost the plot. The new UI they've promised is nothing short of a disaster so far. They've spent a year working on it, and now the beta looks like nobody in house ever even tested it once.
I'm very thankful for Channels, because after 3 years I finally came to the realization that when it comes to software, SD simply doesn't know what they're doing.
Add in their lack of ethics, and it's not a company I want to rely on. Tying the release of DRM to the Prime 6, yet refusing to divulge why is unethical. One can only imagine it's because it will save them money when it comes time to get the Prime 6 certified through Cable Labs. If they're interested in saving money that badly to delay a core promised feature for over a year and a half to save money, I'm afraid that says a lot about the state of the company.
I hope I'm wrong in that regard because their hardware is actually very good. It seems they've bit off more than they can chew, however.
