The install was done on Friday and returned TimeWarner Cable's equipment on Saturday. Things are working pretty well so far.

I decided to keep my original plan and put the H25 in the bedroom. I can record live shows on the living room HR34 from the bedroom and pause if I want. I works pretty good except I can't add additional time to a recording (ex: baseball game) like I can when I'm doing it on the living room DVR machine.

I still don't have internet apps on the H25. I guess I need to wait longer? Will the HR34 eventually get the same software as on H25?

Great choice! Just found this thread, and I would have endorsed your original plan. I have an H25 in my BR, and flatout love it. I've learned to hit R if it's something of interest, and to record the following show if it's sports.

TV apps have been very spotty recently, and may be reworked entirely.

In general, the move is towards all receivers having the same look and feel, same features.

I realize this thread is pretty much over but just FYI, a NEW customer cannot open an account with used equipment unless several conditions are met.

FYI, to play devil's advocate, Dish does have an option to do a leased promo without a commitment (Digital Home Advantage, no -24). Credit scoring is stricter than the commitment option, but it's out there.
