Oh, what to do! I've been on the fence about replacing my HR21 with a THR22, and it comes Saturday if I don't call and delay it in the next two days. Basic question: do people who have the THR22 love it? Secondary question: were you used to 30-second _skip_, and if so, have you adapted to life without it? More detail: I owned the early SD DirecTivo, then the HR10 until MPEG-4 came along I have never had a DVR without 30-second skip, and I consider it essential to the DVR experience I have found many things about the DirecTV DVRs lacking. I am not encouraging people to debate my perceptions (as I've posted them in the past and people have challenged my perceptions) I don't care about MRV, Apps, and many of the more modern features DVRs have added in the past few years, though that could change in the next five years. The thing I will miss most is the iPhone app that allows me to tell my DVR to record something when I'm not at home.
