I know it's been said before but in case anyone is listening.......... My HR23 passed on Monday after nearly 4 years; power supply I guess. Called and had another sent; an HR22 unfortunately. It's all good though, even the lost recordings are tolerable and no big deal really. But the loss of some 2 dozen series links is a real pain to deal with as many of them are shows not being aired now, but they will be back in their new seasons. What in the world would it hurt to provide a backup path for series links only to a usb flash drive, or something on the sata port, or somewhere on the network for those with whole home or via Directv2pc??? Come on DTV, step it up; this from a 12 year customer (who is satisfied even though you would not offer me a Genie at less than full price)!
