    You should probably change History International to H2 in your 2011 poll data so those that don't know what channel it is know it is H2 now.

    I just checked my account and the HR34 is not even available right now anymore...just shows "Available Soon". Assuming the HMC they are referring to is still the HR34 of course.

    Really? No question, get me another! Albeit in its formative years, it has all one could need plus, as it proliferates and matures it will only get better.

    Ok thanks. Seems a bit pricey considering I could have gotten it for $99 at time of install. I guess it's a lot better than the $999 for the first DirecTV HD DVR. :eek2:

    So other than the person that got one for $80 installed, still like to hear that story, what's the best deal anyone has gotten.

    I use mine mostly for recording since it's connected to the same TV as my HR24. When football season starts I expect I'll use it from 1:00 to 7:30 on Sundays to take advantage of the picture in picture.

    I haven't regretted the purchase for a minute (although I jumped on board early and got a good price).

    I hate to admit that I do have 5 channels recording at the same time on Sunday nights.

    Got mine in March for $249 minus a $100 credit for a net of $149.

    This included installation with a SWM 16.

    I was happy with that. I can now record up tp 11 shows at once with my HR34, HR24, HR22 and R22.

    Please explain, I had 2 different reps tell me that they have never been free. Occasionally discounted a little but never free.

    If you don't mind schedule show recordings being canceled with no reason why when they are new, go for it.

    The unit gave you reasons for the cancellations. Let's keep discussion of your issue in the thread you started and keep this one clear for the OP's poll.

    Do you mean with an eSATA drive or is there a factory option for a 2T?

    No, there is no factory option for 2TB. It comes with a 1TB hard drive only. I did not go with an eSATA drive either, as these aren't as reliable as the internal drive, which I upgraded. However, this is NOT recommended, as it will void your warranty, meaning if there's something wrong with the receiver and it has to be swapped out, Directv COULD charge you FULL PRICE for the HR34 (NOT the $499 they charge for it). Upgrading the internal hard drive is a "Proceed at your own risk" upgrade.
