I'm thinking seriously about setting up for DirecTV I stayed with a friend for a couple months he had DirecTV with an HR20 DVR it was great except for it took quite a while for menus to come up and forever to reboot. From what I'm seeing on the website the HR34 is the latest DVR correct? What advantages does it have over the HR20? Is there a review of the HR34 anywhere? Can you record more than two programs at a time on any of the DVRs? Another nice thing I liked about the HR20 as you can connect a antenna to it and pick up off air channels, this came in really handy during storms when we lost satellite plus picked up a few local channels that weren't on direcTV. On their commercials it shows that you can watch shows on the DVR in any room your have a receiver, how does not work? Any other advice you have for a newbie getting ready to sign up is appreciated!
