    Ok, take a look and let me know what I missed or screwed up! I can easily add more if you guys think I should.

    First off, Great Job!

    Here are a few things I found.

    Page 1:
    Header - All caps
    All references to DIRECTV need to be caps
    THR22 - 529 hrs SD, 61 HD (per the First Look)
    End page 1 with the Table, new heading on the next page.

    Page 2:
    "How do I turn off the lighted..." Cannot be done on the TiVo, we should probably mention that.
    "Where can I get the HR2X..." HR2x looks a little better
    solid signal in the same paragraph should either be Solid Signal, solidsignal.com or just third party. Your choice.
    Tivo should be TiVo, last line of page.
    A few more references to DirecTV to DIRECTV

    Page 3:
    Same DIRECTV and TiVo corrections.
    "Should I turn Native on or off..." Change the of to or.
    Bolded list at the bottom, either end all in periods or none of them in periods, many have a period and many don't.

    Page 4:
    "Same monthly recevier cost of $5.99..." I think it's just $6.00
    Should mp3 & jpg be .mp3 & .jpg or doesn't it matter? (I'm not sure it does but wanted to point it out.)
    Pandora (Coming soon)
    Another reference to $5.99 in the "same monthly receiver mirroring..." line.
    End page 4 after the list and start page 5 with "When considering receivers...."

    Page 5:
    The DIRECTV references have the TM next to them, I think that can be removed.
    Same as the other pages, end all of the lists in periods or don't. (Consistancy)

    THANK YOU!

    Do all of the HR21/22/23/24 series have the same size hard drive? (Your recording hours are the same for all). I thought some (other than HR20) had 350GB drives. Not certain though, just a thought that came to mind.

    Good question Carl, I think the HR20's had two sizes, the HR21's have a 350 and the 22+ have 500gb. I'll see what I can find.

    Looks like the HR21's have a 320Gb and the PRO's have a 500 like the rest.

    Portland,...
    Nice Job!!

    Here's some of my suggestions:

    In the receiver comparison tables, I think it would be helpful to have a "SWiM compatable" and "SWiM required" check box, although I think that's covered in the SWiM FAQ.

    Here's some suggested text changes:

    I think it is posssibe to share PPV callbacks over a SWiM connection but maybe we don't need to get into that level of detail.

    I think you should include the HR24 in the list above.

    HD access is currenty $10.00 w/o autopay.

    I would saw "Smoother FF, RW" or "Smoother Fast Forward, Rewind."

    I think you've done a great job compiling all the info. It really does look great.

    I'll get all these a little latter. Yeah, I hate inconsistencies too, but it was late so I didn't proof read as much as I should have! :)

    I find it very difficult to proof read my own stuff anyway.

    My normal method for something like this, do it messy, then go back and organize it better, then go back and proof it. Then leave it for a day, and go proof it again. Have to take a giant step back if you really want a fresh look to catch all the little things, and last night, the little things started getting meshed together, so I just posted it all' and figured I'd do my latter proof with all your guys's input too. :)

    I think I got all these changes, except the mp3 and jpg one. I don't think those need periods.

    I was waiting on spacing till I did some more proofing...

    Adjusted the lengths. I think they are correct now, although the tivo one makes no sense.

    I'm debating about the headlines on the last 3, maybe even the last four parts. I am thinking of making a new headline only one or two lines long, and then making the rest of it a regular paragraph size. What do you guys think?

    Also, look it over again, and see if you see anything else

    I think the headline on the last paragraph can be shortened for sure, BTW you did it twice. The whole last page can be deleted.

    I would be fine seeing you do one or two lines on the headline and finish with a paragraph.

    Turned out very nice and easy to read.

    open the access card door on the front right corner and press the Red Reset Button.

    The H25 is on the side.


    The last section (adding an antenna) is listed twice.

    Ok, made a bunch of changes, added the rbr for the h25, and revamped the headlines for those really long posts, and got rid of the TWO duplicate sections. !rolling

    If no one sees anything else, its finished.
