Current HD DVR Unit Model 2011

The current model is the HR24. It has three different manufacturers, the -X00 part of the model number, and they all seem to be about the same. It's much faster than either your HR20 or HR21 and seems to be more stable, too.
A popular place to get one is Solid Signal. They are $199 there.

Try DIRECTV first and see what they will offer you.
I would expect that you shouldn't have to pay more than $180 to enter into a leased HR24.
Be very careful about checking with DIRECTV on the true status of "owned" equipment.

My old TV failed and I want to make current my electronics when I change it all out. This will keep me good for many years to come.
I doubt the HR24 will keep you good for many years to come, but it all depends upon your needs (current and future).
I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

If you are so inclined, solidsignal.com seems to be the best for getting the exact model you want.
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

Nope. The HR20 has not been "enabled" for 3D.
I thought all the current HR2x models were OK for 3D.
