    After following the topics for months I finally took the plunge and ordered the HR44 from Reider Electronics on Amazon. It arrived in 2 days via UPS. Activated it yesterday and I have to say, like just about everyone, I am blown away. DTV got it right with this iteration. The speed and responsiveness alone make this a winner Really looking forward to no more recording conflicts and using the PIP during football season.

    Nice! :)

    Do ya like how fast you can scroll through the Guide or the Playlist? For me it's too fast to read but I can usually get where I want to be in the Guide faster than punching in the channel number. :D

    Yes the scrolling speed is amazing compared to the other HRs. It is really fast and what it needs to be for a good user experience.
