Glad everyone is enjoying it :) I'm hoping we'll be able to start in our next episode with a "feedback" section to get you users involved and try to clear up some of those eternally nagging questions :) Of course, disclaimer: Not every individual setup/situation could ever be covered - but still having all of you involved I think would be great.

Is this something you'd be interested in having in the show?

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

Very cool indeed.

I actually did the same comparison between my HR24 and HR21 last week. Still waiting for the HR21 to finish changing channels :lol:

Fantastic job. I'll await the next installment with great anticipation.

Concerning this installment and the speed comparisons.
Would it be possible to produce a chart comparing not just the HR20-700 with the HR24 but also include the other HR2x series.
And also a comparison when accessing shows via MRV.
DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.

I enjoyed the hands on demonstration, but I tought you went through it too quickly. Maybe you could explain what the single multi-switch item and the DECA thing does, why they are needed. I only have one receiver in my house, but I was glued to the screen watching you hook up the system, step by step. I think maybe more information as to why you were doing what you were doing is necessary. Great video!
