30 minutes each...

...and the D* buffers are 90 minutes, not 2 hours.

Does the new remote have the 30 second instant skip or the annoying 30 second fast forward skip?

I would think (because of DTV proprietary HW) it would be FF 30-sec.

No, the fast forwarding functions are a feature of the software, and the THR22, by default, does the 30-second skip versus a 'slip' or 'scan'.

Perhaps not just HW as I thought (remember TiVo vs dish case about using Broadcom chip features for processing and do trick modes?) but and FW [SW].

So, is this thing worth a damn? I mean does it have the hyper-accurate TIVO program schedules of the past? I remember my old SD D* TIVO back in the day, and it would give me a message if a program start or finish time differed by a minute or two. Does this new tivo box do the same?

Too bad the DirecTV TiVo unit isn't compatible with the Whole-Home service, has no 3D capabilities, and only has a 500GB hard drive. TiVo equipment is not expected to make it out of 2012. A large chunk of their revenue in 2011 was earned from patent disputes that settled:

A much better way to go is the DirecTV HR34. It is Whole-Home capable, records up to 5 streams at once, has a 1TB hard drive, is 3D capable, and even has a picture-in-picture function. TiVo used to be the standard 10 years ago... but not any more.
