So I thought it would be useful for a followup....


And as Paul Harvey said, "and now for the rest of the story"


I stared at the boxes that Directv delivered the HR34 and two C31s in (three total boxes) for way too long.  I never truly was at peace with a decision to open or send back the devices.  So after much hemming and hawing I opened the boxes and installed the new equipment.  


Obviously I am jaded as anyone using a HR23 which was slow as Christmas.  The HR34 by comparison is a much better device than I had in the HR23.  Speed is a huge improvement in the new box, it really just doesn't compare.  I know by comparison the HR44 is faster but from what I was using the HR34 is a breath of fresh air.  

So you all can rest assured that I have happily taken one for the team and there is one less HR34 in the warehouse.

They both play a 60 minute program in 60 minutes(no skipping). . . the time in the menu, guide or playlist that you spend will not be reduced by the 44 as much as you've improved that time over the 23.


Enjoy your new 34 and minis!!
