I just convereted from Dish Network to DirecTV. I'm paying about a $40/month premium to switch. So i expected that I would get something as good if not better than what I was getting from Dish. Let me also say I am converting from a 722k to a HR34 and two HD receivers. So some of the cost is the two extra boxes ($12) and the better service, HD, etc etc. so I realize that I'm getting more already. Here are my gripes - and I'm hoping there are some people who know what I'm getting at and have solutions (maybe). #1 - DVR recording, my HR34 is located in the basement - nobody really goes there except for 3 hours on Sunday during football games. When I go to record a series, I only want New Episodes. That was easy to set up on the 722k, but with my current setup I'm unable to do so from one of the HD STBs. Can this be accomplished on the HR34 directly? One of the other STB's? #2 - HMC - Included on the HR34 but not accessible via the other STBs? This is a HUGE dissapointment! #3 - Can't pause live TV etc with the STB's (I assume you can on the HR34). Somewhat of a dissapointment #4 - Android Tablet App wont let me watch HBO/Starz/Cinemax etc. I can watch the trailers, but not the shows. #5 - Relating back to #1. The 722k would tell you original air dates and if the upisode was airing for the first time. I don't really see that on the STB's. I think some of these issues can be resolved by relocating the HR34 to my living room. But some of them are more systemic. I'm interested to hear everyone's thoughts and comments.
