    I have had the HR-21/200 HD-DVR for over a year installed as my main DVR. It has worked consistently over the year. I recently got DirecTVtoPC working with help from the board. I am succussfully streaming my videos and pictures through my LAN to the box using TVersity. I plan on upgrading my basement system to a HD DVR for MVR in the future once pricing structure and upgrade path is released. I also am waiting shipment on an external eSATA to increase disk space.

    However, I am concerned that I do not see this particular model DVR mentioned too often. Are there any known issues I should be concerned with? Did DirecTV not manufacture alot of these models and why? Once I upgrade for MVR should I move this to the basement and make the newer model my main DVR?

    Thanks for any help you may have.

    The HR21-200 has a 320 GB drive.
    The HR22-xxx is a HR21 with a 500 GB drive.
    I wouldn't be too worried about the HR21. :)

    It turns out this actually isn't the case - it would be a good feature though. Others in the household had control over the DVR last week, so I didn't get to see for sure. This morning though, I did get to see how it listed our busy Monday night recording schedule and there were two conflicts listed as is normal, with the one conflict being re-aired later in the week and already set to record - hence my conclusion.

    EDIT -
    It looks like with the exception of the HR21-100, HR22-100, and the R22-100 0x0395 is available during the day, and can be forced if you so desire and understand there could be a risk. For the HR21-100 et al, the window seems to typically be 3am until about 7am EST - I would suggest not starting any later then 6:45am.

    I have received the update on one of my two receivers. Is this normal? Should I have expected that both would have received the update at the same time?

    Not necessarily, especially if your receivers have different model numbers.

    My guess is that the one not updated is an HR21-100. They have not all been updated yet.

    I have an HR21-200, which I received as a replacement for an HR21-100 after only a month because it had big problems. Both were new boxes, I think:

    The HR21-100 was made in Mexico on 14 Jun 08 and delivered on 11 Aug 08.
    The HR21-200 was made in Indonesia on 12 Aug 08 and delivered on 25 Sep 08.

    I think you're lucky if your HR21 has worked consistently; I have lots of complaints, including missed recordings, but I have no reason to blame the hardware (except for the sluggishness).

    HR20s are faster (twice the memory bandwidth), and HR22s and HR23s have more disk storage; otherwise, all the models seem to behave pretty much alike (when they work).

    What a bummer....always the last to get anything. My HR21-100 is still without this as well...HR20 has had it awhile now.

    I'm guessing your HR21-100 will be more sluggish after you get the update. That'll be the real bummer.

    Plus, MIKE0616 and I have each reported shows not recorded, and for no apparent reason, with History saying (in my case) This episode was cancelled because of a higher priority task. There was no such task.

    There is even a 22-200, which is a 21-200 with a 500G HDD, according to Doug Brott. I've never seen one or heard of anyone who has one. I do have one 21-200 and it's been working fine for a long time. I think the 200s made by Samsung are more expensive than the 100s made by Audiovox and that's the main reason you don't see many of them.

    Nice to know my sluggish box may have been more expensive to make than someone else's sluggish box. :( (Not really.)

    I've played with my son's 200 a few times, just to make sure it was OK and it's not sluggish at all. I'm not a big Sammy fan, but I gotta say that 21-200 seems to work perfectly. It has the original HDD in it and no external drive.

    I just cleared off programming on a 21-700 and a 20-700 and the 21-700 was more "sluggish" or slow than the 20-700, which was pretty slow at first too. But both have large HDDs that were full. Just backup HRs in case my main four 20-700s have problems. Talk about "sluggish"! Wow!

    As I erased whole series, the 20-700 quickly sped up and the 21-700 took a whole lot longer to reach acceptable (for a 21) speed. I hope you're not experiencing speed as if you have a full external HDD. Nobody could put up with that.

    How do you have the 200 hooked up to the CRT TV? I just looked and it's by HDMI. Have you tried component wires? I couldn't run my 20-700s on a 40" $4000 CRT Sony using HDMI.

    Nobody has it on HR22 yet? No wonder I don't have it. It's not a Dallas market thing then, it's that they haven't sent out the update for the HR22 yet.

    My signature, enlarged: HR21-200 > HDMI > Pio 5020FD plasma, HR10-250 > HDMI > Sony KV30HS420 tube

    As you kin plainly see ;), both setups use HDMI. I'm not using Native mode on the HR21-200 connected to the Kuro plasma, because that slows up channel changing a lot.

    My HR10-250 has no trouble running my 30" $800 Sony CRT via HDMI. I never tried connecting either the old or the new HR21 to the Sony.
