    The only thing I want from Directv DVR's is transferable EHD's instead of EHD married to one DVR, I know is off topic but it would make changing DVR's a lot smoother with recordings intact, As far as adding apps that other non-Directv's TiVo's have is not gonna happen since that's competition to pay tv service.

    Just to clarify, there was one update not long after the release....01B5. This fixed some bugs and added back one back door SPS code (30 sec skip) after DirecTV mandated all of them be stripped. Even the clock in lower right hand corner was removed per DirecTV for whatever reason.

    TiVo was well aware of the HR34 Genie while fine tuning the software on the THR22 and developing the Roamio, but DirecTV was never going to authorize more than a 2-tuner HD DirecTiVo compete with their own branded DVR, plus it was not in the contract from years ago.

    I support both companies, and my 70+ year old parents love the THR22 I gave them last month after using series 2 DirecTiVo's for the last 8 years. I have no TiVo's left on my DirecTV account. Since DirecTV has the final say on software updates, I would not hold my breath on another update for the THR22, unless someone changes the daylight savings schedule in the future like in recent history. :)
