    So pressing and holding the left part of the ring and pressing the right part of the ring 4 times has no effect here? Being on any non-active channel and doing this allows the blue ring to be turned off.

    Pressing the green button once will turn on TiVo and TV, but pressing a second time will only turn off TV, not TiVo.

    Nope, 'fraid not. That's a feature in the DirecTV Firmware that apparently didn't make the transfer to TiVo's firmware.

    Is there any mention of whole home anytime in the future with this series of boxes?

    Those screens remind me of my old HR10-250.

    At least on the retail TiVos, and I swear the old SD DirecTiVos under settings there was a LED option. I believe it is Settings...Display...Displays on front of the DVR. It gave you option for LED On or OFF. I know in my bedroom I always turned them off.

    There's Bright, Normal, and Dim; but no way to turn it completely off.

    Can we get a picture of the entire front of the box? Not just a portion of it.

    Also, you said the UI is SD, does it look crappy? It's hard to tell from the pictures because it actually looks pretty good. Are the normal Tivos SD too?

    The UI is not shabby by any means, but there is obvious pixelation in the line of the SD UI from DirecTV. It is the same UI from the Series 3 TiVo and TiVo HD. The currently-selling TiVo Premiere, XL, and Elite have a different, high-definition interface.

    As far as pictures, I think this may satisfy your needs. All photos are high-resolution on the click-through, taken this morning with my DSLR.:

    I should note this interesting thing: The record light is actually RED (like the HR23) unlike the standard HR22s which have more of an orange light.

    Also, the second Ethernet port does not pass-through like the HR22. Both function as inputs though, just no output.

    Cool, thanks dirtyblueshirt.

    I'm wondering why they went with an HR22ish design? It's not bad looking though.

    Well, the manufacturing and R&D would be cheaper to use an existing unit and focus solely on the firmware. Plus DirecTV wouldn't need to pay Thompson extra to create new molds for manufacturing, as they can re-use the existing equipment to create the THR22-100.

    CW dumped any of their decent shows, so you're not missing much :)

    Off-topic, but I like six hours of their programming a week... that's more than I can say for NBC... and if you were to disregard the fact that "The X-Factor" comes on twice a week, the same could be said for FOX.

    As it is, I watch one show in SD on the CW and catch up on the rest via other sources. Sucks... :mad:


    We now return to your regularly scheduled TiVo picture discussions. :D

    First the boot process. It takes the THR22-100 about 6 minutes to boot from a cold start. However, you will be able to access the TiVo Central screen before all of the satellite data is received; about another 2 minutes.

    As always, click through for high-resolution images.

    And of course, here's some closeups showing the fonts, smoothing effects in places, and lack thereof in others:

    The only really great advantage to the THR22 as it stands:
