Edit: Horray for Google! xD

There are too many variables for this list to be used as a standard. Command response time differs between the different model receivers. Example: Command response time is faster with a HR24-500 than with a HR22-100. Native mode setting dictates response time for channel changes. Wiring between the receiver and TV (Direct wiring from the receiver to the TV vs wiring to a A/V receiver then on to the TV). You're giving Google too much credit. ;)
