    Sooooon is a real word for me after about 18 yrs with this provider.
    AND The Websters definition of "soon" not the D definition or these puppets here.
    (some Just Might be placed puppets fyi.. There is history of this here. Many now get checks from D* But started right here as a poster/ moderator.
    shhhh they dont want you to know that though ;). lol)

    Which is based on nothing. There are certain posters, with very long track records, seen across multiple threads where they bend over backwards, repeatedly posting over and over to defend D*, no matter the issue.

    I simply ignore them.

    It's no secret. Interesting you know so much about the past here being you're a supposed "new" member. More proof for my assertion that you're a previously banned Alabama poster.

    Eh, the insinuation at times is that we are either over-exaggerating or making up the problem, imo. No, I don't mean everyone here as MOST if not all are incredibly nice at dealing with our issues.

    But, I must admit I am surprised at 1) The amount of people having the issues of slowness that I am having and 2) The amount of people that come off as angry that we are having these issues.

    Oh, how you overestimate the public. How many users just accept the issues as is? Because they are ignorant to the issues and do not call to complain, does not mean there is not a problem. My mom hates how slow the hr20 is, but would she ever call up and complain? Nope! She just accepts this as the way it was supposed to work...frustrated as she is, it would never dawn on her that the units are not working how they should until I mentioned it.

    They are not angry that people are having issues; they are angry that people are posting about the issues and blaming DirecTV.

    I have to admit that I had no idea what you were talking about in most of your posts. This was the only post made sense, until I got to the ect's. I wondered what that meant. After googling it, I figured out that you may be using shock therapy to correct the issues with your HR's? Or possibly, you are treating severe depression, caused by the issues with your HR's.

    Many times I have to attempt to input a channel number on the remote 5 or 6 times to get all the numbers to translate to the receiver (HR-23). It's not that the remote needs batteries. It just will not respond fast enough to change the channel efficiently. It is very aggravating. I, like many, have just accepted this as the way it is with DTV receivers. I was hoping the new, faster, slicker upgrade recently would have helped, but it actually seems even slower now. This is really just unacceptable not to be able to do a very basic function without these kinds of issues. It is hard to believe that they can't fix this. I have always wondered if using an A/V receiver (hooking the sat box to the receiver then out to the TV) is part of the problem with my equipment...the HDMI handshake issue. I suppose it does contribute to problem. But that is no excuse for DTV not to be able to fix these issues, as many people use AVR's in their setups these days.

    I am 95% sure that I will be jumping to DISH in the next few weeks. The Hopper/Joey setup sounds pretty good. Although I would probably have to do a 2 Hopper/2 Joey setup to get the additional tuners at the extra cost. But from what I am hearing DISH equipment operates so much better.

    I had no idea others were having this issue. I have an HR-24 and the box will just go unresponsive at times for up to six or seven minutes. Then all the commands that I had tried to execute from the remote will run at once. A reboot of the box seems to fix it for a while. I did try to clear out a lot of recordings. I have 45% free, but still ran into the issue yesterday.

    Another Blueman again i see.
    I saw you guys jump on a installer who does both systems considering Facts of rain fade and Ka vs Ku in this forum one time too.:rolleyes: and how funny.

    FYI "ect" refers to the below and not the fathom shock that precious D has an ounce of fault.

    Et cetera (in English, /ɛtˈsɛtərə/ or /ɛtˈsɛdərə/; Latin pronunciation: [ɛt ˈkeːtɛra]) (rare: etceteros) is a Latin expression that means "and other things", or "and so forth". It is taken directly from the Latin expression which literally means "and the rest (of such things)" and is a loan-translation of the Greek "καὶ τὰ ἕτερα" (kai ta hetera; "and the other things". The more usual Greek form is "καὶ τὰ λοιπά" kai ta loipa: "and the remainder"). Et means "and"; cētera means "the rest".


    Btw
    Truth and facts are from Reality,
    and Not of blue hued blind faith. :rolleyes:

    My HR-23 just shut itself down again and is rebooting. No TV for the next 15 minutes...thanks DTV! This is happening every day now, sometimes several times a day. Nice to pay nearly $100 a month for sluggish receivers that shut themselves off everyday. Dish is looking better and better. I better hop to it.

    You obviously haven't read many of my posts, I'm only half blueman. I praise DIRECTV when they deserve it and tell it like it is, when I don't agree with something. I guess I'll just agree with your post below, that you don't use spell check. The abbreviation for Et cetera is etc, not ect.
    On the subject about sluggishness, my HR22 was worse when it was on the SD GUI. And I have been traveling on business a lot since my HR34 went on HD GUI. So I can't really comment on speed. Its been responding fine, when I access it via my Slingbox though.
