    Absolutely, without a second thought. I'll get a second as soon as they allow it.

    That's waaaaay too simple! Thanks. I obviously had not seen that as an option.

    Yes, especially if you can get a deal on it. There are bound to be glitches, but I have those with all electronics/gadgets.

    I don't record enough to outweigh the problems. Slow channel changes, flaky guide, VOD problems, on and on.....

    I will say it has gotten better in recent months. I should have just gotten a HR24.

    Hopefully Direct continues to improve this thing. It's not a "flagship" device imo.

    I saw a couple people say they'd get a second HR 34 DirecTV would allow it and yet in a couple signatures there are two listed such as:

    TBlazer07 and Sixto

    How can they have two listed if DirecTV does not allow it?

    Mine's in my office, mostly used for LIVE TV. But it acts as an extremely reliable show recorder and server for the rest of my whole home network. It's so nice to be able to schedule what I want an not worry about conflicts.

    We recently had one installed (for a grand total of $80). The family loves it!

    Well, the poll is currently 9 out of 10.

    I'm on the 9 side.

    How, may I ask, did you get a deal like that? What's the usual price for an upgrade?

    Not sure how he got that deal, but I'm pretty sure the standard price is $199 plus shipping for the HR-34.
