    I wish to modify my answer. I was at a friends house yesterday and he has a HR21-xx and the remote response is unusable. He has it all-keybounce,slow response and the worst of all no response. I had no idea it was "that" bad. My condolences to anyone who has to put up with that. To me that goes to the top of the list. Slow speed is an irritant but a non-functioning remote is intolerable.:nono2: I'm going in right now and giving all three of my HR20-100s a big kiss on the lips.:D

    I see what Drew is saying, I still agree with your 1st post.
    A HD GUI should really be low on the list of things, but to each his own. Granted a HD GUI, with a broken CIG seems wierd.
    Hats off to OP, for starting a Poll that allows people to view the poll without having to Vote on it. Not a D* customer so NO reason for me to vote, but like to see the results.

    I voted other. The thing I want is MRV I can live with the bugs if I get MRV. The only bug I might be willing to put first is the one where the slip 30 jumps to end.

    As posted by others, I voted for Overall Receiver Speed, since this is the most evident problem. Hoping that the speed would resolve all other remote control issues that exist as well.

    Same here - above all else, they need to get the fundamental features of the boxes working much closer to 100% before anything else matters. Last week, 2 of my HR21 Pro's had frozen video - I could still bring up the list of recorded shows, navigate the guide and menus, etc. Several of my recordings from the past day or 2 were also trash - the time slider showed a negative value on the left side and the shows wouldn't play. Before DirecTV adds more features, they need to get the basics working reliably - otherwise the DVR is largely useless. MRV, DLB, and all sorts of other things are great features, but none of it matters if the box isn't reliable.

    If I were forced to choose one of the other choices, it would definitely be "overall receiver speed".

    If you back out the results for speed and remote performance, which are actually controlled by the firmware and will likely be addressed in a future update....there actually is very little in terms of things "new".

    The poll is heavily slanted towards speed...and actually not that many votes to this point.

    Here's hoping they correct the speed for those who feel they need it...:)

    I voted for overall receiver speed, but I'm beginning to think we may have to wait for the next generation HR to get it. Maybe with all the added features the chip just can't handle it.
