Time flies, and even though the coming of the HR24-100 and H24-700 was only a month ago... DIRECTV hasn't been standing still.

The folks in El Segundo, California were smart. They knew the demand for the 24 series would be huge and they enlisted Samsung to join Pace, Humax and Technicolor in manufacturing their flagship receivers.

We're proud to give you a peek at the final members of the 24 Series family: the HR24-200 and H24-200.

24 Series Third Look


Folks, we have the best usability testers in the consumer electronics community here at DBSTalk, and with the help of the Cutting Edge Test Team, the 24 series is solidly ready for DIRECTV's customers.

Please note that some DBSTalk.com testers and staff members may have received free equipment from DIRECTV or its partners for the purpose of evaluation and testing.

And for a quick look at the movie that introduced it all. Here's a blast from the past. The Hx24 video from DBSTalk User Canis Lupus (and company). Enjoy!

Another great report. It's good that so many manufacturers are producing the Hx24 line.

How would I go about upgrading from my HR20 to this new HR24? Call D* and complain about the sluggish speed of my old HR20?

OK, so with Samsung now on board with the other three manufacturers producing the H/HR24s, is it safe to say that all previous H/HR series models 21/22/23 (H/HR20s are not of course) are no longer in production?

And yes a nice first look guys :)

I think production of all legacy HD DVRs ceased some time back and only HR24 & H24 systems are being produced at this point.

Purchase one from a 3rd party retailer - defective equipment is still replaced with whatever comes off the pallet and mostly with refurbs or new older stock (new HR22's reclaimed from retailers are also going out to replace dead receivers).

There has been at least one report from an installer that he did indeed install a HR24-200 to a normal retail customer already.
