    In my opinion the TiVo UI is for kids, very childish, and the DirecTV UI is for adults.

    Just watched the latest DIRECTV field tech "Must See" December training video. Host Ray Edwards says the THR22 will launch this month and confirms no MRV.

    And in addition in case anyone's interested, no 3D capability.
    No TV apps
    No iPAD access.

    Kinda interesting though, is he said the TIVO and DIRECTV remotes will be interchangeable between both types of receivers.

    EDIT: Sorry, forgot to add that nomad will not work with the THR22 either.

    If the TiVo box will respond to the remote control in a prompt manner, I'll get 4. I get so frustrated trying to change channel to have the existing UI software on the HR boxes sometimes take a minute to acknowledge a button press. And then it has queued up like 12 button presses in a row, so i've lost my "previous" channel or i get caught on the "customer information" channel.

    I'll bite just for fun... My responses in bold...

    Really, its just better because its faster (in terms of key presses to do important things), more versatile, and not so limiting. You have to go through an entire setup process every time you set up a recording. With Directv hit record twice and move on. Being able to surf the guide or playlist while watching tv is important to me. Being able to change what channel list is up, or even better, adding or subtracting channels to a favorites lists right on the info banner. Having the mini guide is great too. Tivo just treats you like your a child and like every time you are doing something its the first time your are doing it. That's not acceptably to me from a deign standpoint, much less a usability standpoint.

    With all that said, I am glad they are finally releasing it for those that prefer it. There is nothing wrong with choice, in fact I prefer it!

    So the people who have lifetime DVR service, which originally was called lifetime TiVo service, will still have to pay the $5 per month TiVo service fee?
