This is an interesting feature but I'm truly not sure how much I'll actually use it. Time will tell.

If this is truly limited to HR24 and not the earlier line of HR20/21/22/23, how will a CSR get us the right HD DVR box?

Very cool indeed. I feel for the first csr who has a customer claim that they were drunk and didn't order the Adult PPV thru a voice command.

You would have to be an amazingly cognizant drunk to order a PPV by mistake, even using voice.

Only the On-TV-Screen display of the results is limited to the HR24 or higher...

The Voice search functionality with results on the mobile device, will be available to all mobile device users.

Or work on jailbroken devices either.

What makes you say that?  All my iOS devices are jailbroken and DirecTV app works with all of them.

In all honesty, I think this is one of those things you show your friends how cool it is, then never really use it in real situations.

 

I agree,  have had the same type of thing with the Kinect as voice goes..... show off your cool new stuff, then it becomes old news.... i appreciate there push to get a step ahead and move forward with the tech, but with all due respect, work on the broken stuff first.... Adding more is great, yet for most who have issues this is just another set of issues on top of an allready long line waiting for things to just work as intended.

I should already know the answer to this one, but would it work for Youtube search results also?

I can not see anything like that happening. I can however see someone asking for a movie like the "Fockers" or "XXX" (with Vin Diesal) and pornographic titles pop up lol

 Yep.  I tried "find meet the fockers" and it returned a LOGO movie and Vivid.  "find triple X" yields "sorry, I can't do that.  I can find you something to watch"
