I did one of these when they first launched in the test markets. Now that it's available nationally I'd just like to see how many have the intention or have ordered 1(or more) already.

I voted no. I prefer my HR24-500 over Tivo's THR22.

Yes. I added a THR22 to my two HR23 DVRs to make my wife happy. She has been waiting on this for a while since her R10 died. The functionality provided in this version is all she cared about (suggestions and wishlists the Tivo way) and makes her happy (therefore, me happy). I still use the HR23s.

This is likely to be a "skewed" poll. Not because of any inherant problems with the poll itself, but because of the audience here.

I now have a THR22 to replace my wife's beloved HR10 which is starting to fail. It arrived yesterday so I don't have a lot of experience with it so far, but it seems pretty good overall. Yeah, I wish it had some of the features my HR21 has, but my wife doesn't care about those.

I have had mine for few days and I love it. I didn't know how much I missed the tivo features until I got them back. I hope Directv adds Mrv in the future but if they don't I can live without it on one unit.

Just got it yesterday, first HD DVR and dish for me. Now my 4 R22's are HD as well. :) Never thought I could get hd signal here in my apartment, although 103 did fail and had to get waiver. Its in 79/80 range.

Anyways I had missed the tivo, I haven't play too much with it yet.

I am surprised by the poll numbers so far I figured the numbers would be farther apart. I figured the lack of whole home would have produced a lot more no votes.

I'm not willing to give up MRV so I voted no.


Since it costs 1.66¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 3.32¢ worth.  That 3.32¢ is my own and not the 3.32¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

You'd probably have to convince Tivo as well. It's their software on the box. DirecTV doesn't handle that.
