no one's going to argue that it's not true. all of us d* subscribers are (is painfully too strong a word to use here?) aware of just how slow the guide can be.

Maybe working on each problem in bits is how they're doing it now.

My first thought on reading this was "How can you pick an HR2x box to compare with, when they're all so different in speed."
I just saw ... an ad for Dish Network that aired on FNC touting their service... complete with a side-by-side pic comparing [Dish and DirecTV] speeds.
My first thought was, “Wow, that DirecTV guide is actually faster than mine!”
Lucky for DirecTV that Dish didn't have available one of DirecTV's really slow boxes. (Even with 0x0368, a few users are reporting unbearable sluggishness.) But then, maybe viewers of the commercial wouldn't believe Dish hadn't faked the speed; no DVR could be that slow!
