    Trying to figure out how I can get an HR24...

    1) DirecTV refuses to guarantee the model of receiver/DVR they ship. Despite begging, they just sent me a refurbed HR21-100. :(
    2) DirecTV discontinued all retail sales of their receivers/DVRs.
    2) I've read that if you buy a receiver online, if it is used, you could end up S.O.L. because there could be large payments pending against the former account that the receiver was leased to. Where do the online stores get the receivers?

    So, where/how can I get a new HR24 ??

    Advice?

    You're going to have to get used to it.

    That is until/if we get a new GUI.

    My wife and I both hate it also. Nobody cares about art work that you can barely see! The clock just looks stupid over there especially since it is still in the original place on other screens.

    Who does DTV hire for their graphic design? Preschoolers? Geez..

    Have to agree. Those blurry SD images look like cr@p. Plus it has slowed the time it take to browse the guide. Definitely noticing a slight hesitation while the image loads. Maybe when (or if) they decide to make the guide HD, then a thumbnail would make sense. But right now it is just fail.

    I live in an MPEG 4 locals market. The only locals D* delivers here are HD, (used to be SD on 72.5) so D* had to upgrade everyone in my market to HD equipment so they could stop using 72.5.

    I am locked on the hide HD channels, my locals are the only exception because those are the only ones D* delivers here.

    I always love it when someone tell me that I will get used to something I don't like. :rolleyes:

    So don't worry about people telling you that you are wrong, you will get used to it fast.

    I am seeing (hearing) the same thing. If I were to take a guess, the programmers in their quest to cure the audio dropouts, have loosened the muting parameters. Previously, we didn't hear the garbage sound, now we do. They have attempted to "fix" the dropouts at the dvr stage. But, to solve the problem, you must fix the source of the issue, not try to cure the symptom of the issue. I am extremely disappointed Directv has been unable to fix the audio dropout issue.

    Ok, so I got the latest FW up-date for my H24-100 & my HR22-100.....both are working great except I have all of the "box/graphics art" showing up on my HR22-100 and nothing on my H24-100. I received the up-date for my H24-100 over a week ago. Should I press the reset button? Or is my H24-100 not suppose to show the box art?


    Thanks

    No, the receivers don't have a hard drive to store the graphics. That feature is only available on the DVRs.

    This release changed the on demand queuing setup.

    I used to have the option to pause a download after going into the "Queue" menu from the "Manage Recordings" menu. Now I cannot find an option to pause the downloads.

    Any help?

    I'm hoping that the next software release has a way to shut off the graphic photos in the guide and info. I think this "feature" does nothing to enhance the DVR's performance. It seems to me to slow it down with no real value.

    What exactly is the point of the graphics anyway? There are other features that they have added that I don't use but I can at least see that they are a use-able feature for others.

    Me too. My HR21 slows waaay down when I'm paging through a list of search results. And the images are too small (even on my 50" screen) and fuzzy.

    The graphics act like a lobby poster you see in theaters. They're designed to draw your attention. Unfortunately they are too small to be seen correctly even on today's sets.
