I haven't seen the question phrased exactly like this previously or through any searches, but: Is overall operation of any DVR made after the HR20-700 slower (sometimes much slower) than the HR20-700? I added a new HR21-100 to my account last summer, and it was gawd awful slow compared to the HR20-700 I have, especially with more recent software upgrades. I got DIRECTV to replace the HR21-100 and got a refurb HR21-200. While it's quite a bit better than the HR21-100, it's still significantly slower than my original HR20-700. BTW, the original on line order for the replacement DVR said "No commitment", so I was surprised to find out it's standard policy to extend the commitment another 24 months when a receiver is replaced. The on line order has been changed to now show "Commitment". Thanks.
