    DIRECTV has just released the latest high definition DVR, HR21-200 to the public, and DBSTalk brings you the news first!

    [​IMG]
    The unit is made by Samsung, and its capabilities are exactly the same as HR21-700. Current release version is 0x195.

    We're extremely pleased to show you this "First Look" at the HR21-200, courtesy of DBSTalk field testers HDTVSportsFan and HDTVFan0001!

    Warning, the first look document is about 5MB...

    More manufacturers means lower likelihood of unit shortages. Nice review!

    Braces for the onslaught of "which is better the HR21-700 or the HR21-200" questions. Just to head that off... They are functionally identical.

    Editor alert!!

    "Hot on the heals"?
    "While a quick peak"?

    For the record, I'm not picking on anyone, the document just needs a little editor work....

    They installed one here at the company I work for in the CEO's office last week. I noticed some minor differences between it and the HR21-700 that I have but not much.

    Is this going to mean we are going to have a Two-Hundred Nation with CEs? :p

    Looks good, the more HR21s the better!

    Isn't it kind of weird to have a company release a new version of something with a LOWER number than the current one? How confusing.

    the -200, -700 designates the manufacturer... and that's all... it's not a lower model.

    -200 = samsung
    -700 = pace

    Great work guys. Informative, concise and professional presentation. I'm sure even our friends at Directv are impressed with it.

    What do you mean by released to the public ?
    Where can I get one ?

    Are they sent out as a replacement for bad HR20s ?

    Released to the public...
    As they have been in field testing for the last several months...

    The HR21-200 are now hitting the installation tiers, and will be available in retail stores.

    And yes, they can be sent out as replacements for bad HR20s....
    Especially in cases where there is no need for ATSC.
