I'd agree and work through Ellen's group to have them replace it.
And if/when he pays for HR24-500s like I did and he gets what I got with the HDGUI update what does he do then?
Well.... not that I would ever open up a receiver but.... I did see with my very own eyes that the R22 and HR22 have identical boards - including part numbers in them....
All 3 of my HR24-500s are not!!!
Yep the old DirecTivos had the OS on the hard drive... You could not just replace drive and have it work - you had to copy the OS from the old drive to the new.
I would also like to see an THR22 but I don't know anyone that has one or plans on getting one...
And so, the "big upgrade" of the HR22, was a larger hard drive. :lol:
The 23 was the change in SAT tuner chips so they don't need the BBC on a non SWiM.
This one should have a "Ba dum tssshhh" after it :lol:
A more expensive tuner only to paradigm shift to a SWM infrastructure. I'm guessing the left hand didn't know what the right hand was doing
You could do some fun things with radar when the higher ups weren't around :lol:
I had an O-3 that threatened to destroy everything within a 2 mile radius once; I think he's now in Leavenworth :lol:
But yeah, back to "bitching"
Thanks for the tips. I tried turning off ID but after entering 9-6-3 on the keypad, the green light didn't flash twice. I tried it again to make sure, and it still didn't flash twice.
Just to be sure, that's the three digit sequence 963, not 9 dash 6 dash 3.
With my HR22's something new has happened recently to make them CRAWL. And it wasn't the HD UI. When that first hit the performance actually improved to moderately slow and annoying to reasonably fast. But now the boxes are getting close to unusual. The performance isn't consistent but it's not unusual to have to wait 20+ seconds for it to respond to hitting select or the down arrow, etc. I am not exaggerating. I used to enjoy that these were faster than the old DirecTivo's (especially after changing season passes!) but they are now slower than those ever were. And the lag really seems to be specific to processing commands. It hasn't caused lag in just watching shows for example. Or if I hit the 30-second advance 4 times it will take 15 seconds to initially do anything but once it starts it will advance at the expected speed... Yes I've reset the boxes...
Be thankful D* doesn't make airplanes....:lol:
Seriously, you've pointed out something that's been obvious for a long time. There seems to be no long range plan. Or it changes weekly if there is one. I can just see them all clustered together in some meeting room right now trying to figure out how to integrate NetFlix into their "long range plan", now that it has become obvious that NF is gonna partner with some provider.
Yeah, one of our radar techs turned on the surface search radar while we were in Norfolk and shut down the TV reception for the whole city. We were playing poker on the top deck when the antenna began turning and we all looked at each other and wondered why. Figured it was something to do with lubrication.
Couple minutes later a van with a revolving antenna pulled up to our ship and demanded to see the Captain. Seems our boy turned the radar on. He didn't leave the ship for a long time.
Powerful, SSR is.
Patience, gotta have patience.
My 3 HR24-500s are a mixed bag. sometimes they operate just lickety split for whatever I'm doing with them at the time, and then the next thing you know the 'slow dog' comes out to hunt and everything is a crawl.
Why? If history of software updates in the past and the HRs prior to the 24s is any indicator, the story will be the same one we've heard for years. 'the next upgrade' will fix the speed issues, maybe even followed by glowing reports in 'first looks' or the CE crowd.
I don't expect that D* will ever figure out the speed issue. Is it poorly designed hardware trying to do what it can't, or is is poor programming that can't get the most out of the hardware? The answer is most likely both.
Regardless, slower DVRs are what we really can expect imo.
I've noticed the same thing after recent HR34 update 0x4cd, I wouldnt think that should have affected the 22.
I've participated in the "history" of all things HR and it does take some time to iron out the problems. Look at the 20-700s. I've got eight of them and they're almost as fast as my 24s. In '06-'07, I was going berserk about the 20-700s and now they are fine. I'd advise a bit of patience, but my HRs are merely responding to the new GUI and everything else is as speedy as it was. I'm not sure I'm having any other problems such as you see.
History shows us that every major NR causes problems for a lot of folks, but they get ironed out. Just takes time.
In the grand scheme, DIRECTV doesn't make DVRs either. They simply write the hardware specs and try to correct their oversights with software.
OK, be thankful that D* isn't supplying specs for the airplane industry, that better?
