I have decided the THR22-100 does not have the "remote record" capability, which is a real deal-breaker for me.
According to all the documentation and the unhelpful rep, it is supposed to work. Afterall, the THR22 shows up as a selectable device. I think we need to have enough people complain to get someone at DirecTV to sort it out.
Automatic 30min buffer causes way too many scheduling conflicts. With the old DVR, you were given the option to add the buffer or not.
I've not encountered that. The scheuler gives you the ooption to pad either way.
Cannot record PPV Home Cinema movies
Can we do that on the HR224? As a Netflix subscriber, I've never even considered PPV.
Unable to view photos, YouTube videos, etc. from my desktop computer via the wireless router (router on my computer and router on my DVR, for which I paid $200 separately)
I can view photos from my network. Have you installed the TiVo desktop on the computer?
Can only keep some movies and shows for a max of 1 week?
Is that different on the HR24? It's hard to understand why the retention restrictions would be different on the two devices.
