That assumes they actually can. I have serious doubts as to the overall skill level of their development team.

Looks like E! HD is set to launch next on Directv.

Ok my Hr24 is sooo damn slow it kills me. Sometimes you have to press channel up 5-6-7 times for it to register. I have reset it and it helps for a day or so then goes back. Is there anything I can do or should I just call DTV and get them to do something about it?

YES: my HR22-100 is exactly the same. My 7 month old Grandson has NO patience when I am trying to change the channel or play a previously recorded episode of SID THE SCIENCE KID!!!

CALL DirecTV and post your results...

My boxes including an HR34 are also slowing down. The worst are two HR20's that sometimes are fine and other times, particularly in the morning, take forever to change channels or forward, etc. There must be a reason that this is happening more often than in the past. My wife and daughter also have no patience.

I think it is the hr24 mine is the one with the touch screen front on it. I have had it about a year. Whatever model it is, it is unbearable I am going to contact them.

I have a HR-23 and an HR-24, they are both changing channels very slow !

Can we complain via the internet, I do not feel like waiting on the phone and having the computer operator treat me like I do not know what words to properly say.

I have 2 DVRs. An HR20, and an HR24 wired with SWM and "whole home" service. So I have one of the oldest and one of the newer DVRs. The HR24 has always been faster, especially while scrolling through the guide. I've not noticed a slowdown on either DVR. The only time it seems slower is when using trick play on a show recorded on the other DVR, but I expected that.

Both of my receivers HR-22 are very slow. Of course they were fine before the new interface and guide!
post #12702 of 14740
I'm usually not one to complain about this, but I'll agree; my HR24 has become increasingly unresponsive to multiple button presses as of late. Sometimes it takes 4-5 presses for something to happen. I've gone through and checked everything I can think of. Of course, my HR21 is as slow as ever. Like, painfully throw it out the window slow.

It looks like D* will be adding E! HD later this month.

But the GUI looks nice!!!!!!!!!!

I had a 21 for a short time before it was replaced with the 24, and yes, it was gawd awful slow. The speed difference from the 24 to the 21 is night and day, but the 24 is still slow. I really don't care to have lightning fast when I finally make it inside the guide, I want it to be fast all around.

exactly; I would complain a hundred times a day if it can be done on the internet, but no way am I going to sit on hold on the phone for a clueless rep that is just going to tell me to reset the receiver....

When I get a computer that wants me to talk to it, I do one of three things:

- I talk gibberish at it until it gives up.

- I say nothing and it eventually gives up.

- I just keep punching buttons until it connects me to a person. That also works for those "press 1 to be annoyed, press 2 to waste your time with options that don't solve your problem" type systems.

I have zero tolerance for voice mail and even less for being expected to talk to it like it's a person.

Usually just doing nothing on the phone will get you to a operator. Don't follow the prompts and you'll get to talk to a person relatively quick.

E! ... coming in HD?

Good.



DirecTV -- bring in even more basic channels in HD!
post #12710 of 14740
oktoberrust11,

I don't have even that a high a series, and my HD DVR is ridiculous. Bring it up to customer service rep, and I was told it would be a good thing to shut it all down - even unplug the system - for brief period; then start it all back up again.

Millions have service from DirecTV. It would be damn stupid of the people at the company if they were not aware they have a problem.

There is a code that u can enter via the search option on the remote that speeds up the response.I cant remember the code(sorry) but it was posted a cpl of times.I know it works as i tried it a couple of seperate times.Been awhile though.Maybe a search will dig it up. Also if your set in "native" it also slows things as well.

Same here as well.

I wonder how many people only tune into E! for The Soup? lol

I would have preferred BBCA or IFC, but I'll gladly take E!.

TiVo has a page at their site that allows you to see what recordings you have made and what recordings are scheduled, does DIRECTV have a similar option at their site?
post #12717 of 14740
No

Usually just hitting "0" gets to an op.

Not with every system. Some will say "I'm sorry, I don't understand that response" a few times before they take you there. I think some systems disable that option to keep people from doing that.

There are two versions of ST this year per Satellite Direct magazine. ST and ST Max.
