    I really can't wait until this Directivo Emerges from the Shadows so once and for all the debate can end about this device and whether it will be Great or a POS!!! :lol:

    Interesting perspectives...

    Bet there are plenty of folks with the totally opposite perspective too...

    Bidger, you've gotta be at least a little bit unhappy with your slow HR20-700 and your slooower HR21-100. I had an HR21-100 too, and I called Retention repeatedly until I got my '21 replaced with a '24. Then I replaced my suddenly-dying HR10 with another '24 and got MRV just two months ago.

    You could upgrade too. (I turned away an installer who had only '24-500s, because I believed they were turkeys compared to the other '24s.)

    I have an HR24-500. Solid as a rock since day one. But, I don't have an AM21 or do Media Share so that may be the reason I've had no problems.

    It seems preceptions are centered on how something is used. ;)

    Me Too!!!

    I don't have any problems with my HR24-500s now that I figured out my one problem of Audio Dropouts which has now been resolved and I don't have an AM21 hooked up to it which seems to cause problems and I don't use Media Share as I have a Music Server so my Perception about the HR24-500 is that it works just fine.

    :confused:

    So let me get this straight. Tivo always did things better...

    Except for:
    One touch recording
    MRV
    Bookmarks
    (R) icons on programs in lists and guides that are scheduled to record
    Triple tap text entry

    So which is it? :rolleyes:

    Hey Robert cut him some slack as it took me awhile to admit that almost everything I wanted in my HR10-250 (I was one of the first to get one) was now available in the Directv DVRs.

    If I could get the New Directivo DVR without paying a Premium Price and still not get WHDVR Service (MRV) I would not Opt to buy it.

    But if it comes with a Premium Price then it better have alot of Bells & Whistles that I currently don't have with my HR2Xs.

    And that's the bottom line. Nothing is perfect, it all comes down to the annoyances you're willing to accept.

    Everything has a compromise. Universal remotes, AVRs...DVRs. We choose what fits our requirements. Give up a feature here; put up with a quirk there, and all to get what fits our needs.

    Oh, come on! Everybody else is talking compromise, or liking some of this and some of that, and you just have to throw a verbal grenade into the crowd.

    You cannot be serious!! (said in John McEnroe's most outraged voice)

    !rolling

    I guess the only thing I miss is the full time DLB. I won't give the 90 buffers though.

    I'm not trying to be confrontational but I have to be agree with inkahauts. I can't think of anything either. I'm not trying to ba flag waving DirecTV Fanboy, but with Nomad coming, the only thing that TiVo can do that I want will no longer be an issue.

    It is possible to like what I have. :grin:

    Sorry. I cannot either. And I am trying.

    Maybe the Tivo Guy video on startup?
