Long time DTV customer. But the Dish offers are enticing, and i'm tired of this slow/quirky DVR interface. I have a 3-4 year old HR -200 or something like that. It farts, flickers and is otherwise slow whenever I press a button...especially coming out of watching a recording (like hitting stop and expecting to quickly press down-down on the remote to go to "delete".....down, wait, wait, wait, down, wait, delete.....). Anyway, can anyone share with me whether the new Genie DVR's are significantly faster? I'm sure if I call they will get me one if I tell them i'm otherwise going to Dish...but not sure I really want one unless it fixes the above problems? I've heard the "Hopper" is a nice device...and responsive. Programming on Dish is fine with me..... Thx. Dave.
