    New customer (5 months) with recent installation. In Living Room, HR 24-500 and AM21 off air tuner. In bedroom, H25-700. My questions:
    1. on bedroom H25, I cannot pause, rewind live programming, is that to be expected? I can however use those functions when playing back recorded content.
    2. is H25 the latest model for what I'm using it for?
    3. is HR24-500 latest model short of installing genie?
    4. I've seen this answered in earlier threads but just want to make sure...the guide recently eliminated an off-air channel which i know continues to exist (cable carries it). Therefore I cannot access channel via guide. Prior to that happening the guide always was unable to identify content so I had to manually record show. Is that the reason no longer shows because directv does not have programming content?
    5. My former DISH dvr allowed me to rename title of recorded program, does HR24 have this capability? I cannot find any reference to it.
    Thank you for any guidance.

    1. That is correct. On a Genie system, the C31 has this function, but actually uses one of the tuners from the Genie. The H25 has it's own tuner, but cannot "trickplay" live.

    2 and 3. HR24 and H25 are the most current of its class.

    4. I believe this would be correct. The HR24 cannot scan for channels.

    5. This is not possible.

    1. Yes, the H25 has no way to buffer LIVE TV
    2. Yes, it is the latest HD Receiver.
    3. Yes
    4. DirecTV uses Tribune Media for it's guide data. Check with them to see if it's available
    5. You cannot rename recordings

    My H25 wasn't never very hot, but the power brick definitely got pretty warm.

    Same here. If the unit itself is very warm, that's not normal. Power brick, normal unless its hot.
