Thanks for the prompt reply. The extra room will be nice to have. I will have to assess the speed issue. One of the big benefits of DTV over our local cable provider (Cablevision) is the speed of the menu and guide. If that gets taken away by this "downgrade" in equipment I will not be a very happy client.veryoldschool said:The HR22 has the larger drive [500 vs 300], and the speed wasn't that much slower than my HR20, though it was "slightly" [as in I could notice it and have to slow down my remote pressing]
That is great news. My HR20's have performed well... at least since about 2007. Originally the software sucked... But they now work well. I am just hoping that the HR22 performs as well in the long run.say-what said:I know many complain about the HR22 and because of this I cringed when my parents received an HR22 as a replacement a year ago when one of their hr's died, but that unit has performed well. I have HR24's and while there is a difference in performance vs the HR22, thosedifferences aren't significant enough for me to complain about.
Also, the new GUI does speed up guide and menu performance.
Yes, Native on absolutely slows things down a bit... did that on the HR20 as well. But it still is my choice for best picture quality. Thanks,MysteryMan said:The new HDUI should speed things up when using the guide and menu. Also keep in mind if you use Native ON it will make channel changing slower.
Thank you for the info.veryoldschool said:Actually it isn't a system reboot.
Tune to channel one, wait for it to load with sound.
Press red red, blue blue, yellow, green [quickly] and look in the lower left of the screen for "NVRAM cleared"
I am using a Harmony One so I am not sure this will do much for me. But thanks!beforesixbeers said:Guaranteed fix and how to for system slowness
The remote's model ID sends remote information to receiver with each keystroke, narrowing options for remote-to-receiver programming.
Customers may need to disable Model ID if receiver is slow to respond to remote commands.
Put remote in TV mode
Press and hold Mute and Select until the green light flashes twice.
Enter 9-6-3 on numeric key pad.
The green light on remote should flash twice.
Press the Channel Down key.
The green light on remote should flash twice again.
Yes, I did clear the NVRAM. I was referring to the fix which makes the remote no longer send identifiers...Richierich said:Don't you have the Original Directv Remote? Use it to Enter the code and to clear the NVRAM and then go back to using your Harmony One Remote which I also have.
