What DVR's will I be getting?

So, what can I expect? The H-22 or H-23?
Thanks if anyone knows!

Currently have 3 HR-20's and whatever dish they installed allows me to get the full range of HD channels. Will there be any problem with the HR-23's?
Sorry for the simple questions, but I'm not a techie - just like the results!

Are they sending someone out? If you have 3 HR-20's already.. and you have all the tuners working on those 3, that's 6 ports.. a SWM setup would almost be full.. If using the Zinwell, you might need to get a bigger switch as I think it only has 8 ports.. Maybe someone can correct me.. But you might need some new hardware to power those bad boys unless you only hook up one tuner
Just needs a 6x16 Zinwell multi-switch which the installer probably won't have on the truck.

The HR23 is just like your HR20, except it's black, has a larger hard drive, does not include a built-in off-air digital TV tuner (buy the AM21 accessory if you need that), and does not need the BBC modules.
Naw, the 23 is just a 21-700 with a larger HDD and a couple of other differences. Pretty close to a 20-700, not as quick. He'll probably get a 22-100 anyway. Wonder how many of those things they have made? Biggest difference between them is that the 20-700 will run most eSATAs, but the 21s, 22s and 23s are a bit pickier about which eSATA will work.
