    I'll make a note of it and add it to the next version. I want to try sending out updates every quarter or major change if possible.

    Tony, on the HR21 for Sumultaneous Recordings it should be the same as the HR20, 2+1 for DoD. Also don't know if you want to add remote scheduleing via internet? Thanks for keeping it up to date.

    Doh! I changed it in my Excel sheet, I want to see if the DISH ones can do that before I post 14f. Nice catch!

    Remote scheduling for the ViP622 began testing, but the test was aborted and nothing has been said since.

    Tony,

    GREAT thread - exactly what I was looking for since DirecTV is starting to call me non-stop to offer me upgrades for my HR10-250s.

    I noticed one thing that you may want to update. With the recent software upgrade to version 6.4 on the HR10-250, remote scheduling via the internet is now available. Maybe you could mark that down with a "Yes" and have a footnote that you need 6.4. Also, I'm not sure what "Single Overlap Recording" means in your list, but version 6.4 comes with a new overlap protection feature.

    Thanks,
    Jay

    Thanks, Jay. I'm currently in update mode with that and a couple of other things on the DISH side. I'm holding off for a little bit but should probably be ready for an update in the next couple of weeks.

    Tony,
    Great job on all this.
    What about adding Autotune to the Dish ViP series, in the Features list?
    I travel alot, and use the Autotune for a lot of shows. Otherwise I would come home and have 60hrs of shows I didn't want recorded. Autotune is also on the HR2x wishlist too.

    Perhaps you could offer an explanation of why autotune versus recording directly? Consider that most outboard DVR systems can handle the channel changing themselves.

    I'm not sure about adding the autotune because while it is cool, like harsh mentioned, most DVRs can handle the channel changing already.

    Please add new Dish ViP722k to the charts.

    [Be ready for new ViP922 ;)]

    Umm, another remark - Dish DVRs had another additional simultanious 'channel 'for DishONLINE thru Internet.
    There are more:
    - EHD cost is $39.99
    - EHD size raised to 1 TB officially, but ppl using 1.5 TB/2TB disks
    - 1080p only for 24 fps

    I would add new line: Internal Disk size: 622: 320 Gb, 722:500GB, 922:1 TB.

    Forget new Dish model ;): 211/411 can be converted to full fuctioning one sat + one OTA tuner DVR; price is the same $39.99 and disk size [official] 50Gb to 1 TB.

    Heck of a job Tony!

    May I suggest a couple of additions?

    The Dish Receivers can do IR and RF remotes at the same time. The HR2X series cannot.

    Maybe a relative speed index of some sort? Things like speed moving through guide/recorded events lists and changing channels? You'd think it wouldn't be a big deal but I can tell you the HR22 is so damn slow it makes it difficult to use. People just going through the lists won't know there is such a huge difference in speed between these guys...

    Thanks for the great work Tony.

    I second that! The HR22 is excruciatingly slow. The unit is so slow to respond to even simple things like channel inputs. It shouldn't take me 3 tries to punch in 2-0-6 to flip to ESPN. I miss my HR10-250!

    I dunno if this thread is still alive but i noticed the live buffer may need some looking at on your chart, when you do double play i belive the live buffer goes to 4 hours. could be wrong though.
