Thanks for nothing then DIRECTV
Most likely an error.
You mean Tivo.
Oops, forgot they were separate You're correct.
Do you think "D" would consider adding Whole Home at some point? I would like to try a new Tivo BUT I love my Deca Whole Home and we use it extensivey on every receiver. Unless the D-Tivo can join my Deca cloud family, it wont be showing up in my home but I can always wish.
I have a few questions.
Can the new Tivo output both HDMI and Component at the same time? I know the older HR10-250 couldn't do that. Not looking for it to output different pictures, just want my Slingbox to work.
Does the channel selection actually work? On the old Tivos, if you told it that you didn't get a channel, it wouldn't try to record from that channel. IOW, a wishlist for a local baseball team wouldn't try to record from other regional sports networks. Sure, Game Search helps with this on the current DTV boxes, but it's not perfect.
In line with the above comment, what about the old problem that Tivo had where every week the Sunday Ticket channels would get added back into the channels you received, basically breaking sports wish lists.
What he was talking about is different.
At the beginning DIRECTV sold the TiVo for life and then realised that it would include every dvr fee, non TiVo's, so they stopped.
Then later on there was a national offer for customers to get free dvr service, no longer selling TiVo, for life.
Two different promotions.
Again the lifetime TiVo service did not require someone to keep a TiVo active.
What's the $7 mirroring charge? Is that the standard "extra receiver" charge?
Previously, Tivo service was (and still is) included in the Premier package. Do you know if this is still the case?
Question: I have never had TIVO nor do I know a whole lot about it other than from these very helpful forums BUT does the TIVO need to be connected to the phone line constantly? or connected to the internet constantly?
And second question: I can connect this myself? switch my hr22 for the TIVO?
Yes, that's the mirroring fee.
No, no dvr service is included in premier anymore, hasn't been for a while.
Looks like the DirecTV cinema that TiVo can't do is the pushed movies via sat. Bt if those movies are also available via on demand, then it doesn't matter, so this is really only an issue if you aren't going to hook it up to the Internet.
I came to DTV after being a Tivo Stand-alone (w) Comcast subscriber - does the program guide use the data from Tivo or DTV. Specifically I'm looking for the episode number info. Maybe you could post a screen shot of the episode info screens.
How does FF look? Is it smooth, like the old DirecTivo with MPEG2, or is it choppy like the HRxx receivers, which many have blamed on the MPEG4 encoding?
The stand alone TiVos allow the guide to overlay a recording during playback. That is something the HR10 could not do. Can The THR22 display the guide over a recording?
One other question. Is an SWM required or will it work with the older multi-switches.
The guide data comes from DIRECTV. I'll be sure to include an episode info screen in the first look.
Looked about the same as an HR21 to me, not smooth like MPEG2. I'll play some more and try.
Another one for me to try tonight.
I am pretty sure it will work with a legacy setup.
great no glow in dark, thanks for nothing DirecTV - and posting multiple times about facts is not spamming, stop willfully lying and erasing cold hard facts about who decided what for this reciever.
What do you mean? If you're referring to the ring LEDs, I can assure you they're quite bright and on constantly.
