    I have mine on Saturday.... I will request an HR22 (or HR23 I guess ;) ) if the guy has one on the truck - otherwise I'll take whatever they give me. Beggars cant be choosers!

    My suggestion is. If he comes with an actual HR23. Then no credit is needed. Take the box and thank him for his hard work. D* charges back the HSP's for the credits they give you

    I talked to the tech this am and he said he has a couple on the truck and should not be a problem getting one to me this evening. I hope it is an HR213. And of course I will post pics. As for the detailed pics (opening it up and taking pics) I'll leave that one for the more savy folks to do. But I will do my best. Who knows, if I get one and confirm it, that may give those secretly testing it to the green light to "first look" it.

    Oh no... :nono: Here we go!

    Somebody... quick - check the website. I wonder if the HR213 is "2 Tuners, 1 OTA, and 3 Buffers"!!!!! :lol:

    HR213, how many new HD DVR's are there?:)

    My installer asked me why I requested an HR22, instead of the HR23. He said he installed several of them. When I began to question if he meant an H23, he then started to back pedal. I will be looking forward to your post, after you receive the HRXX DVR.

    It's funny, because I spoke to two people in the case management department at D* and both have confirmed it's existence. I was told it is going to be the box going forward that will alleviate some of the b-band issues some are having with the hr21 & hr22 boxes. It has the new wide band tuner in it.

    I am very curious to see the specs on this DVR. :D Sounds like it has some upgrades/fixes on it.

    You may be right, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you get.

    Since I have the SWM LNB and HR22's, I don't have any b-band's either.

    The standard level of anticipation mixed with doubt shall exist until:

    A) The Shadow who knows everything says there is an HR23 or
    B) Photographic evidence, capable of withstanding scrutiny, is published..

    We just have to be careful. We all got burned by the Bigfoot fiasco of a couple weeks ago... many good Georgians lost their lives in the fight to protect Bigfoot... and it just turned out to be a rubber suit :nono2:

    :D
