    Given that in all the years the DirecTV-Plus DVRs have been out, that use the same method (indeed the THR22 is the HR22 hardware-wise), and nobody to my knowledge has manage to hack them, I'm not holding my breath. I miss the ability to save programs externally, but for me, at least, it isn't a dealbreaker. That's really the only thing I'm missing.

    Well I just talked to directv, I got a reduction on my monthly bill since Ive been a quiet customer, i dont call and threaten to switch and so on, their words not mine, for 12yrs. They will also replace my ailing dsr7000 with a hr24 r a thr22 for free, of course its a 2 month commitment. So Im torn with what to go with, thr22 isnt getting any updates regularly, the tech said that was tivo's issue, or go with hr24 which is directv os.

    Or buy another SD DirecTiVo for $20. (not an option I would do, but it is an option.)

    Its been over 2 years since I started this thread and am happy to report that my 2TB Western Digital WD20EURS upgrade drive in my THR-22 is still working perfectly.

    No glitches what-so-ever.

    My "stock" THR-22 in my master bedroom is a whole nuther matter, started glitching badly the last few months. Looks like its time to upgrade the drive in that machine. Good news is the 2TB Western Digital WD20EURS is still available on New Egg and Amazon. Even better … they now sell for half the price they did 2 years ago.

    Actually, 1/17/12 to 4/9/13 is just over ONE year, not two, but it's still good to hear it's still working.

    Damn Tony your right!

    Must have been all those years waiting to get my hands on the new Tivo that gave me the time warp.

    Here I was thinking I was going to call the retention dept and threaten to quit till they gave me one of the new Genie's.

    Now I have to wait till Nov to make my play.
