    Excellent job as usual, gentlemen. Re: the claim at First Look: "Makes Superman look slow". Wow, that is really optimistic. Sorry, but as far as I'm concerned, the jury is still out on that till I get my hands on one and crank it up.

    Great Job Folks!! The Video is great, the First Look Document is terrific!!

    Does anyone know if the 50 series recording limit has been increased to match the great 500 gig hard drive? I'm sick of using key work recording in order to get about 75 shows set up on my HR21. I know, I know, I should do more with my life than trying to watch 75 TV Shows. Any info would be great, it would mean either just buying one HR24 or two.

    The jury won't be out too long. This thing is so fast, it is ridiculous. The timed statistics don't even do it justice.

    Nice work for all involved, very professional! DIRECTV should use that 1st look as a sales brochure. It looks very, very nice.

    Good Job. :allthumbs

    Great job, guys! When I first started with D* back in 2006, their HDDVR's were $299. Sometime after that they dropped to $199. Do we know yet whether the HR24 will be $199?

    According to the last page, it scrolls through 20 pages in the Guide in 7.4 seconds, or .37s/page. A third of a second per page. Sounds pretty quick to me. :D

    When you are a CE tester do you get a 24 now or have to send it back and wait for the release date?

    Couple of questions:
    1. Does the new remote do RF?
    2. I have a 5LNB dish - will that work with the HR24?
    3. Will it support my current ESATA drive I'm using on my HR20?
    4. Will we be able to install it ourselves (I don't need a tech to install it, and it's MUCH easier for me to just order it, install it, and send my HR20 back)
    5. Timeframe?

    Thanks for the great info!!

    The HR24 DOES have an optical/TOSLINK audio output on it, it's the H24 that doesn't.

    Great job to everyone involved. Thanks for all of the hard work that you all put into these First Looks.

    I am looking forward to hooking one of these up in my Living Room as soon as I can get my paws on one.

    1. Yes.
    2. Yes. I still have an AT-9.
    3. I don't know. Of course, assuming it works, all your recordings will be unplayable on the new box.

    I looked at the pics and didn't see it the first time I glanced. If so I am very happy and can't wait to get one in my hands! Be fair, I just woke up this morning when I looked the PDF.

    I had an idea when reading about the built in DECA and ethernet. Would it be possible to have the DECA work as a replacement for Wireless / Powerline networking and hook the Ethernet to another Internet enabled device like game console or blu-ray or evan a switch? Something like this:

    Internet -> DECA -> HR24 -> Blu-Ray

    This way people could essentially have wired ethernet connections all over their house without needing to run ethernet cables or using wireless?

    Any ideas if this would be possible? What happens to ethernet port if DECA port is active, disabled or dual or pass through?

    Does the HR24-500 have a true 30 second skip feature?
