    Not not saying I don't believe it... Just saying they sent me one last week.

    I think it will be a long time before they before they stop asking for HR21/22/23s to be shipped back. If they get shipped back they'll get shipped out to new customers, used as replacements for failed boxes and for additional boxe orders. Could be a very long time.....

    Yep – I have a long history of complaining about the HR2x series. No doubt about it. When my HR22’s stop sucking I’ll stop bitching.

    And a few of you have an even longer history of coming to DirecTV’s defense at all cost. Maybe you would like to enlighten the rest of us on your motivations for carrying the company torch?

    Now I just looked at each of those and still don't see anything.
    No one here has said the HR20 or HR21/22/23 are not slower than the HR24.
    I also don't see enough votes to show there are 100 voters supporting your position.
    Maybe you can "data mine" those polls to show how they can support your position.

    I don't know... Have you ever had anything to say that DirecTV wouldn't 'approve of'?

    Does it matter?
    He retracted his comments earlier and deleted...I suspect in an attempt to retain a civil conversation.

    It takes 2 to tango.

    No need to data mine. Just saying the receivers are slow and that at least according to the polls more people think these receivers are closer to the 'slow' end of the scale than the 'fast' end of the scale. Considering how many people here are devoted to protecting DirecTV (not you!) I'm surprised the polls turned out so poorly for DirecTV.

    I know that I have and I've been asked to be part of a number of early release testing programs, the HR24-500 being the latest. As long as you're not bashing for the sake of bashing and being honest I've never had an issue with saying something negative about DirecTV.

    Other then that, I love Directv because they have what I want - HD sports and tons of it. I had a Moto cable box for a year, I know lag very well. :lol:

    "Reality check"

    Everyone has expectations of how their DVR should work, whether they've used any others or not.
    You poke a button and expect a response. Now how you judge this response will vary by many things. If you've used faster DVRs this will affect how you feel.
    I had this after using my HR20 and tested my HR21. Yes it is/was slower. As I've posted, it seems to be less than half a sec longer, but I notice it. This longer time isn't a big deal to me.
    Others have said they wait 10 sec for a reaction. If any one of mine had done this it wouldn't here very long.
    If I was used to driving a Ferrari and changed to a Yugo, it too would be around very long. :lol:

    "One of the problems" with polls is the voter base. More than likely those with the problem are going to vote than those without the problem. I can't even know if "I voted" in any of them.

    Not sure what that is supposed to mean...but...

    I can assure you that others here are not fond of the HR10 DirecTivo (me included), and may have had issues in the past as well. I also know I have, including the MRV pricing and others. DirecTV is not perfect nor will it ever be. I don't need it to be perfect either.

    Perhaps the difference in all this is that when some have had an issue, they looked at the alternatives and peacefully worked with others to resolve them, using the information and tools that are at everyone's disposal.

    Others have taken the vent, re-vent, and re-re-vent approach, and ultimately accomplished little to solve their issues. I have learned from the school of hard knocks that it is also easy to be tempted and sucked into these never-ending kinds of threads. It seems a shame that all that energy spent couldn't be directed in a more constructive way to satisfy their needs.

    I haven't seen any single person at DBSTalk who means any intentional ill will or negative experiences for anyone else.

    The goal here is to give information, help, and do the best within out own abilties to resolve anything that can be. All the answers are not here, yet many well-intentioned folks are here.

    I have yet to see a single problem anyplace, anytime, anywhere solved through repeated venting. I have seen thousands of issues resolved through mutual help and work to get something done.

    In the mean time...best wishes for enjoying your HDTV viewing.

    I wasn't even considering why (or why not) people would want to demand an HR24. I was simply pointing out that it is unlikely that the earlier models are going away overnight. I've seen evidence in the last month or so where HR20 models are still being recovered.

    Since you brought it up, the HR24 seems to have a few users (is "vocal" bad if the problems are well documented and repeatable?) who mention issues with it as well.
