Hey everyone...I've been out of the loop for awhile and need some advice. My current home setup is 4 DVRs: (1) HR34 and (3) HR24's all hooked up together so that the DVR'd shows can be viewed on all TVS. I'm not really sure of the connections, etc. I'd like to keep a similar setup with being able to record on each DVR. By the way, I own all of the equipment. One of my HR24's died this morning with a temperature issue. Another HR24 is exhibiting video "slurs" and "hiccups" during live broadcasts. I need to replace both of them inexpensively and I see I can get replacement HR24's for about $40 a piece but it almost looks like HR34's are a similar price. I assume they are plug and play HR24 for HR34? I know they need different remotes. I still don't like the new DVR interface of the HR34 but I can grow to like I guess. I've also read of newer HR (DVR) receivers...are there any other options that I need to look at for a similar price? Or should I stick with the HR24 or HR34? Do I need to look at revision levels? I'm honestly happy with the HR24's except they have slowed down over time even after factory resets...maybe its time for a bit more speed. I was just going to buy them over ebay but will DirecTV replace them since I've been a customer for a long time. I don't want to get into any contract though. Is ebay (3rd party) my best option?
