    No patience necessary... ;)

    As much as I like TiVo, I have no intention of getting one of these... though if I ever strike it rich, I might get one and stick it beside an HR34 on my main TV.

    The classic UI doesn't appear to hold any surprises really, so I'm not really excited by the pictures... just checking them out. :D

    Thanks for the picture Stuart. While it has 8 channels on the screen at once in the grid, it still looks sort of dated. I like Virgin Media's Tivo grid guide much better.

    Do they throw random ad's in the grid guide (similar to the DirecTV's software?)

    So far no, but I have a feeling those take a couple days to come.

    Yes, and1080p is indicated differently than a typical HR22 as well. On a DirecTV standard box, the 720p and 1080i lights both illuminate to indicate 1080p content. on the THR22, the 1080i light is now labeled 1080i/p.

    If it was HD, didn't cost an extra $5 a month, I didn't have to get a different box, and whole home DVR worked, then I'd switch.

    I actually like where they've taken the hrxx series.

    Too bad that TIVO didn't come out with a stand-alone, that supported Directv in HD.

    Idling out both tuners so it can record suggestions?

    Sorry, no CW-HD logo... and I do get it in HD here in San Diego:

    (of note, I don't even get a CW-HD logo on my HR24):

    I would like to point out that the HDVR2 (and its almost visually identical cousin the HR10) did not have INTENSELY DRAMATIC BLUE LIGHT RINGS.

    Fixed that for you. This receiver is old technology and fails to support a lot of new features.

    Hey Stuart are you able to post a screen shot of Directv On Demand yet. I was wondering if it is any different looking than the HR one. Also how is changing channel speed. From what I heard the new HD gui does not improve channel changing speed. Maybe on the Tivo it is better.

    I think Stu's at work, but I can help. The channel changing, according to my completely unscientific tests is about 2.5 seconds from pressing "enter", compared to 3 seconds on my HR24 with the HD GUI.

    Channel changing speed is about the same as a stock HR22. When I got it fired up I got only one channel of on demand, the main one, and it looked the same as it does on the HR22 except with the Tivo font (Franklin Gothic Condensed) used instead of the DIRECTV DVR font (Trade Gothic Condensed.) There were also color button instructions at the bottom.

    It does support OTA through the AM21 or AM21N module.
