    Great job Stuart! Interesting info about the CE availability for the THR22 - I never thought to ask if it would work, now I know it does, and now I know it's a moot point. ;)

    Again -great job!

    Someone forget to open the box and post what is inside. Perhaps some TiVo's parts ?

    From the pictures in the First Look, it appears that this unit is crippled once again compared to the Stand-Alone versions.

    On USA (channel #242) tonight at 10:00 Eastern/7:00 Pacific, there is an episode of NCIS in which the HR2x is listing a total of 18 in the cast & crew. This would be the same, or around the same on a stand-alone TiVo. However, from the screen shots, it appears that the THR22, like the HR10-250 and other DirecTiVos, use only a handful of listings in the Cast & Crew.

    Is this correct?!

    Nice job, Stuart. This will appeal to many. Hats off to DirecTV and Tivo for finally getting this done.

    What version of Tivo Desktop is being used in the guide for streaming photos and music? What music formats can be streamed across one's network? Also, can anything else be done with Tivo Desktop on the software side of things?

    Thanks for the great first look. Hopefully DirecTV will continue to add new features to the Tivo line.

    Great First Look! I like a lot of the differences from the DirecTV DVRs but there are too many features missing for me to seriously consider this one.

    I'm confused - is this based on the HR22 or the HR21? The text and link on page 2 is for the HR21-100, saying it's the same hardware, but elsewhere on the same page it says HR22.

    The hr21 and hr22 are the same, except for the hard drive. The hr22 has a 500gb drive.

    There are no hardware differences. Zero.
