I did.

Was just curious if others here have. What few of us left that is...

I purchased 2 and had 1 working. For now I have all three in a drawer and using an IPTV solution.

I bought one. Had been waiting for the Prime 6, but decided buying a second Prime 3 was the best I could do. Not sure I really need 6 tuners of cable + 4 OTA (Quattro 4K), but that is what I now have in service - on Win7MC. Still waiting for DRM recordings on the HDHR DVR (Kickstarter supporter).

Those that have one of these, does it differ from the original model? For instance, is it missing the 3 individual "tuner active" LEDs?

Yes, it is missing the 3 tuner LEDs but that is all I have discovered.

Apparently the Primes haven't had the individual tuner LEDs for several years. So this isn't really a change specific to the new 2020 batch.

Really? I didn't know that. Interesting.

I really like having them, it makes it easy to quickly tell if the DVR is working without having to turn on the TV.

This isn't a "re-release"; it's more of a "we found a bunch of new old stock in a warehouse, and decided to release them to the wild since the 6 tuner model is dead".

Really? Is this known or speculation?
