Sorry for the confusion....I meant to say that the Program Guide on the HR20 is faster than the one on the H20 - D*s MPEG 4 compatible receiver (no DVR). With the H20 I gave up on the slow Program Guide and used the single-line quick guide to find programs. The HR20 improves upon this greatly.
After a second night using this new DVR, I can only report positive results with what I have watched and recorded. I set up "Reno 911" to record as a Series Link recording and it did it. We watched the Emmy's "live" at 8:00 PM PDT, gave up at 9:30, hit the record button and it started recording it - from 8:00 PM! We then watched the recording of "Reno 911" I scheduled earlier. We will watch the second half of the Emmy's tonight. I have also set up Series Links for "The Dog Whisperer" - found about 8 episodes - and scheduled them, "Vanished" and "Stargate Atlantis" but this series may be ending/over soon? So far, so good.
For someone who has never had a DVR before, I find the interface rather easy to use. I haven't had a single recording, audio, or video issue with the HR20 since installation. But I'm not recording off any of the local MPEG 4 stations (at least not yet) and that is where some of the issues crop up that others have described on another board.
I plan on giving a more definitive "first-users" report to the Forum later on after I have had a few more days using the machine. So far, it's been a lot of fun, and I can see how this thing is going to change how we watch T.V. forever.
