I've often wondered just how large Mike's fingers are.... :lol:

Ha! Luckily my HR24s don't seem to have the problem of not being able to enter channel numbers. I know what a pain it is because it was a constant thing my HR22s.

Stop it! You're crushing my hopes and dreams of having 'fast' receivers from DirecTV someday!:D

I'm trying to lose any "fanboy" status. :lol:

Mike, stick with the DVRs. Please. Unless you can put up with having a 34 or 44 with multiple non-DVR clients and the 34 or 44 fails. Then you'd have nothing until the 34/44 was replaced and you'd still lose ALL your recordings.

Sounds like I’ll have to stick with the DVRs just to keep what speed I have. I did hope to be able to use an HR44 and 3 clients understanding that if the HR44 dies – I’m done. But I’m not willing to go back to the speed of the HR22s or maybe even slower from what VOS says. Just couldn’t and wouldn’t do that!

Maybe someday they’ll allow multiple HR44s per account and maybe (talking crazy here!) a centralized schedule so the HR44s can decide where recordings happen…. I know, I know – I’m a dreamer!

Finally got a chance to see an HR34 w/ clients in person. And I thought HR22 to HR22 MRV was slow :lol: All joking aside, it's not an implementation I could see using in its current state. This word gets used a lot, but maybe the HR44 w/ client will work better.

Yep. At this stage I'm disapointed to still see threads on this topic around here. I don't really think it's important to quantify the "slowness" of a receiver/client any longer. I've used a Dish receiver, and I think if one were to put the two brands side by side "slow" would be understood. It's been argued as to whether "slow" is a big deal, and it's likely not. But it's my belief that "response time after button push" threads shouldn't even be around today. Except, of course, for my HR22 :lol:

How folks put up with any 21 series HR is beyond me.

The financial tribute required to be guaranteed of getting anything better is relatively high.

And yet, all 12 of my HRs are as fast as I need them to be and NONE are 21 series HRs. Only 20-700s and 24s.
