:backtotop Trying to get back on topic.. It's apples and oranges. The HR34 and the Hopper target 2 very different markets. IMHO it is like comparing a Porsche 911 and a Porsche Cayene. Both are really nice cars, but do I want 30 cubic feet of cargo space in my 911? If I did, I'd buy the Cayene. Both the HR34 and the Hopper are valid, but very different, DVRs designed to solve different problems.
