I actually just switched back to the R10, still have a standard television in that particular room and while I was going to switch to high def, after using the THR22 for a day I will wait longer as I found it to be a step lower in quality from the R10. There is an annoying screen saver that kicks in if you have any live television paused for a few minutes and there is no way to shut it off. When you hit the fast forward button there is a delay and awkward stammer start to it, the R10 fast forwards in a completely smooth fashion. Instead of hitting the down button on the remote you have to hit a live tv button to switch tuners, minor issue I know but the new remote is not better than the R10 one. Unless there is an option for this that I missed you can't just hit record in a one touch like fashion from the R10, the THR22 takes you to a separate screen with other options and you must highlight record and press enter. There were a couple of other issues that I can't remember but overall I felt this update was clearly designed on the cheap and it is depressing as I'm not sure how long Directv will support the R10 and I do prefer Directv over other options but I love Tivo. Maybe Tivo will one day allow you to use their own brand receivers with Directv or perhaps design a better Directv/Tivo combination receiver?
