You also told us your HR24 was dying.
Which is how you got the Genie!

I did the speed test, and you are right about 3.5 seconds for HR34. But I also played with the HR24s and its about 2 seconds!
Sorry but the HR 24 is a much more responsive receiver across the board then the HR34.
HR24 and H25 are about a dead lock as far as speed.

Setup a speed poll?

Yes, my HR24-500 was failing but it's channel changing speed wasn't effected and remained the same throughout the years I had it. My HR34-700 is still faster than my HR24-500 was.

Ok, from searching around and the discussion here, I think I'm going to opt for a replacement hr2x and hope it will be a hr24 so I can have 2 more recordings and space and add the whole-home option for $3/mo.

And since it looks sweet, I'll order a hr44 from weaknees so I don't get stuck with a hr34 and use that as my primary dvr in the family room. That way I can get rid of both of my old SD recievers and go all HD.


Everyone that commented, thanks for the help!
