    Ooh the R16 looks pretty tasty! Big improvement over the styling of the R15, IMHO. Any difference in the interface or is it pretty much the same as the R15.

    As good as it looks, the most impressive thing about the R16 has been the stability. It's very, very reliable. Just works, like you would expect a DVR to do.

    The R16 completes the SWM capabilities for SD. Combined with the D12, you now have SWM capability in both SD receiver and SD DVR.

    Was more than happy to help out, and am just glad to now be able to change my signature to show my R16 :)

    Also to continue to echo the earlier sentiment... This is by far my favorite DirecTV DVR in a very long time. Rock solid, and the quietness is almost unsettling.
