I've been cleaning the HR24-500 off daily to make sure it has been somewhat clear. I'll continue to look for this and report back. MRV on the otherhand is working, not perfectly, but tolerable. I just need to get DirecTV2PC working on the HR24, works great with the HR21 and HR20. Of course the major difference between the DVRs is that the HR24 is on DECA and the other two are not.
