    I have had mine for 25 months now and no problems other than stuff that they have since fixed with updates. I was a big TIVO fan but like these much better I have 2

    I got my first HR20-700 in October of 2006 and it is still running to this day. I got a second HR20-700 in February 2008 (it was even a remanufatured one) and it is still running as well. I have not had to replace anyone of them.

    Got my first one Oct 06, and the second one Aug 07. Both are doing well with no issues. My HR21-700 arrived in Mar08 DOA, was replaced within a few days and has had no issues since. Now, my H20-600 on the other hand............

    I guess it took me a bit longer to convince DirecTV to give it to me for free. :lol:

    I had once since they first became available. I remember the rush that folks were going through with trying to find site on the net that had one to sell, like one place in California that said they were going to get them and sell at a price cheaper then anyone else, and then all of a sudden the weren't.

    First one installed September 26, 2007 with HD upgrade. Took the installer to go through 3 boxes to get one to work. I had heard there had been some problems but didn't know the details. Found this site the next day and been on CEs with everybody since then.

    Second HR20-700 in January, 2008, took 2 to get one.

    But all -including HR22-100 and H21-200 - have been mostly flawless even on CEs.

    Got my first HR20-700 on 9/13/06 - so I think I am technically a couple of days short of 30 mos. It seems to be chugging along quite contently.

    The second one (the youngster) arrived 8/14/07 - and also has been trouble free.

    First 3 receivers are 28 months old. Going strong. (One owned unit has been modded to 750gb, but the disk is still working in a PC these days.) :)

    Cheers,
    Tom
