I have an HR22-100 with current firmware that is 'extremely' slow. I'm considering an hdd upgrade to 1 ~ 1.5 TB and am wondering if this larger hdd will improve the speed of the menues. Can someone offer any info on this?

Unfortunately, it will not. Performance is limited by CPU's memory bandwidth and the software. Drive performance is not a factor.


If you want a faster DirecTV DVR, find a HR20. The HR20 uses an older CPU has more memory bandwidth. This translates to better responsiveness.

Thanks bf. I was hoping it would work like a pc; a bigger and better quality hd usually helps the system. After giving Directv $199 for this one, I really don't want to purchase another one. However, if my frustration continues or worsens, I may have to buy one after I rip this one out of the rack and throw it out of the back door, LOL.

Are you using the AM21 OTA add-on? Some people found that removing that improves responsiveness.
