    If you compare HR20 problems to Tivo problems, it is a bit misleading because there are many more models of Tivos. I went to http://www.googlefight.com/ and created a googlefight with HR20 Problems vs. HR10 Problems. A bit more representative of real results I believe:

    HR20 is still better :D

    That's kinda funny! I don't actually think that this data represents anything meaningful. This was my subtle attempt at sarcasm as I was pointing out a fallacy in the OP's argument.

    Mine too, Doug. All it really proves is that it depends on your point of view. (and of course that you can manipulate statistics to prove anything!) :biggthump

    You didn't say it right:

    "TiVocommunity Mod's are so clearly superior."

    ;)

    [FishMan trusts that the Mod's here will recognize this as the sarcastic lampooning of this thread's OP as was intended.]

    You all are welcome to your opinions, especially those that agree with mine: DBSTalk.com moderators are the best and our sister sites have very, very good moderators too. :)

    But I'm not going to enter into an HR20 or TiVo is best. And to show my work I feel they both are incomplete. TiVo no MPEG4, HR20 no DLB. But they have their strengths.

    I will say the HR20 is moving forward. The HR10 hadn't for quite a long time...

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Why should I just quietly accept it when I have such wonderful understanding and support from fine folks like you?

    BTW have y'all noticed how much better Tivo units are compared to the HR-20?

    You have my support for your right to opine here. One of the things I greatly like about DBSTalk.com is we are allowed to disagree with ANYONE about their thoughts about satellites and that we generally do so politely.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    They had THE golden goose: Information. They couldn't make money. Most sad.

    Don't feel too bad, mganga. MY HR20 DID record the season finale of Lost ( 2 hours! ) but navigating past all the commercials with the stinking barely-functional FastForward drove me out of my alledged mind! Just got this HR20-100s last week and the FF is every bit as bad as they say it is.

    Aside from recording, FF is the single most critical function of a DVR. Get it right or dagnabbit get outta Dodge. This machine is generating a crapload of bad press for DirecTV. I can say that can't I? Crapload?

    Crapload. Crapload. Crapload.

    It was only about 6 months after the DirecTiVo release before the software was updated to enable the second tuner. The day they enabled the second tuner they had dual live buffers.

    I have had one since about 2 months after they were first released and the DirecTiVo was/is a very stable platform. What problems are you refering too?
