Would the scanfw application that is online show this information as 
well?  I currently have a Motorola STB with an HD-PVR, mainly because 
90% of what I record can only come from the STB.  Only a few shows are 
available on my HDHR.  If I could get some of those shows via the Prime, 
I'd order one in a heartbeat.
