Ok, my current setup is one HR44 in the living room and a HR22 in the bedroom.  My problem is the HR22 is getting really slow.  I have the protection plan from DTV, but when I called last night they basically said the stalling I'm having is within range of normal.  I'm averaging about 5 seconds between channel changes, and it hasn't always been that slow. Should I call again and try my luck with a different rep?  Second question is, what will they replace the HR22 with, a HR24 or a genie Mini, and which would be faster?

 

Thanks

LOL well that sucks, what are the odds of getting a HR24 from the installer.  IE when he calls ask him what receiver he is bringing, then cancelling if I don't like what I hear?

That's one approach.  You could also purchase an HR24 from a dealer like Solid Signal and request that DirecTV credit back the cost.  


HD DVRs: HR34-700; HR24-500; (2) HR20-700 + WD eSATA 1TB drive/Antec MX1 case; HR21-700; HR21-200 w/AM21
Receivers: H25-500 HD Receiver; H21-100 HD Receiver

Depends how they determined yours is replaced.  If it is dropped ship, your most likely will get an HR22, if is a truck roll, most likely an HR24

Receivers gets replaced with the same class of receivers, so in your case an HDDVR will be replaced with an HDDVR, not a mini
