Yes folks, it's real .. There will be an HR22 coming to the HR2x family ..

You may say "What? No First Look? :confused:" This is because the HR22 is pretty much the same thing as an HR21 except that it records 100 hours of HD instead of 50 hours of HD. This is accomplished by putting a 500GB HDD into the system instead of the normal 320GB HDD that you would find in the HR20/HR21.

Here's a link to Best Buy if you haven't seen it yet:

I have no idea when the HR22 will be generally available ..

The HR22 is identical to the HR21 so you will need B Band Converters. The only difference is that the HDD is larger.

Are the available outputs the same?
Looking at the spec sheet, it lists only a single composite output (no S-Video).
But the pic of the back panel (which might be an HR21) shows the usual 2 composite, 1 s-video config.

Would be nice for a 'server' box if they ever get MRV released.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Maybe an HR23 will have built-in B-bands? :grin:

Can it be mated with the AM21 like the HR21?

It should be able to use the AM21 since it's just an HR21 with a larger drive.

I have a Mover's Connection install set for August 29 (2 weeks from today). I ordered another HD DVR and assumed I'd be getting the HR21. Maybe I'll get lucky and get an HR22!

Would calling D* and asking them for an HR22 help my chances at all?

About as much as calling me for Saturday's winning Powerball numbers.

Cool, and for the same price with a 500gig HD, its about time.

Now how about an HR23 with a 1TB HD? I'll pay a little extra for it too. :)
