I think the message here is that different people have different views of what "works properly" means.

It is surely possible to be functional and still not be up to expectations. This is especially true when the wildfire of a hot new model spreads.

Which DirecTV receiver are you currently using?
DTV = Digital Television

Really ? The model number is right on the cardboard box and on the sticker on the back of the DVR itself.

I mean that one model behaves so much like all the others that you couldn't tell much without looking at the box or the sticker.

Dear God, Please send clothes for all those poor ladies in Daddy's computer. Amen.

I'll let you know what I get tomorrow. I have an MRV install scheduled for 12-4 and have 2 HD DVR's and 3 HD receivers and internet connection in the order.

Installer just left..

2 brand new HR24's :D
3 brand new H24's :D

I got lucky, he said it was the first new receivers he has seen in a month. Otherwise it would have been HR21's

My installation is today so we shall see.... I at least want the HR-22 for the 500GB of space as opposed to the 320GB

*** Installed a HR24-500... Has a quicker response time and a better looking design. Other than that, about the same as my old HR22
