    Well, you are wrong. My folks never miss recordings. They do NOT have the burp issue on anything they record. And they record constantly. During the regular tv season, they record probably 6 to 12 hours of programing a day, and during the summer they record probably 8 series a week, and then also record as many movies as they think they might watch. They also have ARSLs set up for the Dodgers and Angels.

    The units are on NR, and are lightning fast in comparison to the tivos they used to use, and about the same as the replaytvs and ultimate tvs they used to have.

    They do manly use HR20-700's (3 of them).... And a few ce's back, their one HR21-700 was every slow, and I did hear about that almost daily.. Haven;t heard a peep out of them on it since the last NR. Thats not to say it can;t be faster and better, but they are completely satisfied right now with what they have. SO your assessment is nothing more than your opinion of your personal experience and expectations.

    I personally would rate it a B on my hr20-700s and a F if I had a HR21-100 still on NR... based on it needing to be faster. SO do not think I am biased, because I am not...

    Thanks for your words Mike, even if they are off-topic.

    I just voted A. (I have one HR20-700 on NR)

    I personally don't think an A vote means they don't think things can get better.. But that they are happy with what they have now, and anything else will be icing on the cake and of course welcome with open arms.. Per my last post, different people have different expectations and requirements for something to be considered an A machine, and even if they did use a Dish DVR, they may not find it better or worse, just different..

    2. I agree the CIG is an issue, but not one I have to deal with at this time, because I have permanent ARSLs that created a workaround for it, and I never have to worry about it except for that one time I created the ARSLs... I'd like to have it working though SO I don't have to create workarounds at all, but its arbitrary at this point for me...

    6. What do you mean by inconsistent? I am curious what is inconsistent on your search results, because mine are and always have been consistent. I would like to see if I can duplicate your issue on that.

    7. Unfortunately, this really does have nothing to do with DIrectv, and they can not change it in any way. I don;t see how any of the responsibility can be put on them for something that is out of their control.

    10. I still have faith we will see this lifted or removed someday... :D

    11. :D

    12. I doubt we will see this feature... :( But it wouldn't make me vote a grade lower by itself...

    Are we off topic?

    __________________
    I didn't mean to restart the old thread here.... I just had an honest question about what people are comparing their HR2X to get the 'A' grade.

    I guess it's hard to get real info from these polls - people at both ends are always going to be there!

    The poll is to rate a person's experience with their NR DVR(s), simple as that.

    No where does it state anything about a comparison.

    Apparently I am blessed with the complete inability to communicate. Please disregard my posts.:eek2:

    Can I change my vote to 'A' please?:D

    Well for #6 Future Weapons and Mythbusters sometimes I get correct results sometimes not, and sometimes I get results for channels I don’t get. Back to #2
    And for #7, I really got to disagree with you on this one. I think they buy their guide data from Tribune. If the guide data is not acceptable than it is up to D* to make sure they’re getting what they pay for or switch suppliers.
    A few years ago Ford was putting Firestone tires on the Explorer. In sharp turns the tires would fail and the Explorer would roll. Does Ford not have any responsibility for the roll-overs?

    My HR21 is painfully slow. I think it is now slower to respond to the remote than it has ever been (I am in about month 15 with this unit. A prize to anyone who can tell me how many software "upgrades" we have seen during that time).

    I had hoped to have a decent DVR by football season. One that has DLB, is responsive to the remote and has slow-mo that actually works for sports. Hopefully we will see the new Tivo box soon.

    This is as good a place to ask as any… Is the brriiip issue only experienced on the HD DVR units?

    It actually doesn't bother me, but I thought I'd ask. That and CIG issue are like so far down on the list they're not even complaints, lol.

    The 'brriiip' issue is more of a station problem than a sat service issue from what I can see. I've seen it on both D* and E* HDDVRs and at a friend's cable system.

    Very seriously. You've been offered help. The idea of three HRs doing the same thing and blaming that on the HRs borders on the ridiculous. The odds on the HRs being at fault has got to be astronomically high.

    Different issue, I wasn't refering to my specific stuttering through the menus troubles, just the general lack of speed of the HR2X series and people giving it an 'A' grade.

    Ditto for my HR22. Extremely slow. I am comparing to my previous HR20 with older software.

    I do get the occasional briips, but I don't think that factors into how they function. I have no missed recordings and mine are all fast enough for me. As fast as my SD TiVos were.

    About the missed recordings: No one could possibly call our HR usage "minimal". Mine record programs everyday and we watch a lot of TV. And we don't watch one HR, we spread the usage out. All I've got to compare it to are VCRs, Ultimate TV DVRs, and TiVos. And none of them were faster than my HRs.

    You guys and your 'slow' comments are going to be in trouble if you don't join the flock and admit you don't really have any performance problems!:D

    So true... :)

    Last night I checked the HR21-700 I have. I'm down to 10% of the time used on the HD, 6 series links, no network connection and I even sacrificed a chicken on the grill last night while saying some incantations.

    No help, still seems slow as molasses. :(
