I was going to wait and get it when Overstock got theirs in but with free shipping from Amazon.com it was just $5 more. The guide and channel changing are fast except if you do one channel change at a time using the up and down arrows. Does anyone think DirecTV will do a PIP channel change like ATT Uverse has? Picture and Audio seems better. I wonder if that will ever improve? I also like the size of the HR-24, its small and sleek looking. I have one question I programmed my remote for my Sony HDTV it will do everything except change video inputs. Is their a way to do that. I like that updated programing the remote with showing the TV's model number.
