I'm surprised there are no unpacking videos.

    Yes. Give us some UnBoxing Porn! :)

    I don't remember where I saw that but someone does a show called UnBoxing Porn where they unbox new products.

    If I don't see another unboxing video I will be a happy camper. Same with receiving another set of HDMI cables.

    I'll have my Pro Tuesday. I'll take a video of the unboxing if no one else has. Not real confident about talking on camera though, so it may be silent.

    With Parallels is there really a need for a Mac version of VRD any more? ;)

    I know. We'd love to do one. But we're a small company (2 developers) and there is a TON of legacy code in VRD that would be hard to port to Mac. (we use a lot of Windows specific C++ libraries) Someday maybe.

    Could someone explain to me why the big deal about unboxing videos? It is packaged just like every other TiVo with less stuff.

    Parallels is not a very good experience.

    Amen. The day I can't open a cardboard box without a video tutorial on youtube will be a few hours before the med students at UTMB start carving up my cadaver. Hopefully they don't post THAT video.

    I think people expect YouTube videos like what happens with cell phones. The reason I did not video mine is this is IMPORTANT and I wanted to get it setup and WORKING as soon as possible. So no time for a video.

    When my next HD comes, which should be soon, might put up an installing HD video.

    Agreed, you open the box, take it out, and plug it in.

    Parallels works great on my Mac Mini and my MacBookAir. Ran Windws7 fine and runs Windows8 just as well.

    Yes, we know. I have Parallels 8 (with Windows 8) on my MacBook Air and it's amazing software.

    But just try editing video video on it, via VideoReDo. It's not an ideal experience. Native Mac software for such a function would be much better indeed. Alas, Dan203's explanation as to why there isn't a Mac native version yet makes sense...

    Multimedia programming in Windows is a very specific environment, and I'm pretty sure that VRD uses DirectShow extensively.

    Porting it to the Mac world would about as likely as me driving my Vette through the delta quadrant, fighting the Borg as I go. :D

    Why did you buy it from Weaknees? Just curious... Amazon has them in stock now with PRIME.

    We actually don't use a lot of DirectShow. Really only for reading TiVo files and VMR for video playback. What we do use is a lot of MFC.
