    With the R22's having HD capability now, what would the advantage be of getting an HR-2x?

    This may be a trivial discovery on my part, but have the on-screen progress bar and info panels been translucent all along, or is this a recent enhancement?

    No need to call CS. It's being rolled out slowly to different receivers, in different places, at different times. I'm sure you'll receive it shortly.

    R22s have a 320GB HDD same as HR21,HR22s and HR23s have a 500GB HDD.;)

    Also HR23s have wideband tuners so you don't need any BBCs.

    So I could get BBC's for the R-22 then hook up an external drive to the e-Sata port and in theory save myself $100?

    HR21-700 and HR23-700 are still spooling the older national release today. Some folks would have gotten it overnight last night, but not everyone. Just a little bit longer, but we are on the downhill side now.

    As long as you already have the Slimline Dish.;)

    Think you also need the HD Access before your R22 receives software 034c.

    R22 runs off of the same 0x34c software as the HR21s. You need HD Access and an HD antenna to get HD programming on your R22 (oh, and those ever important BBCs in non-SWM installs).

    Doug can DirecTV turn the R22 into an HR21 after the software upgrade 034c?

    Otherwise if you don't have HD Access before the software upgrade can the R22 be changed later?.Read somewhere there was a problem with this?:confused:
