I helped a friend setup his new *ish HDDVR 2 weeks ago. The interface and speed of his HDDVR made my D* HDDVRs (I've got 2, hr20 and hr22) seem like slow clunky antiquated pieces of crap. Asked him today if he has had any problems with recordings and stuff like that, he is very happy with it. Will D* ever upgrade their interface? If not I'm looking into switching satellite TV providers. Their HDDVRs are that much better.
