Goodbye, poor Tivo

It looks like my ancient DirecTivo (I bought it from Weaknees way back in 2007) has bit the big one. I phoned DirecTV, and after going through the support routine (is it plugged in, etc) to no results, they're shipping me a new receiver. They didn't say what kind, and I didn't ask, but I doubt it will be a Tivo.

That went well. When I talked to Direct on the phone, it sounded like I'd have to wait until Monday or Tuesday to get the new DVR, but it was sitting on my porch late Saturday morning! As I expected, it was a DirecTV DVR, not a Tivo, and I'm still figuring out how to use the durn thing (naturally, they didn't send a FM to R ). So far, it seems okay.

What model DVR did you get? Look for the label behind the front panel access card door.

You can find manuals at DirecTV's web site under Technical Support.

Don't you just LOVE negative posts!!!

Firstly, the HR44 is not available except for a few markets yet. Secondly, the HR34/44 is NOT a DVR per say, it's a home media hub and only available for multi-TV installations. It will not be sent out as a DVR replacement.

Finally, the HR20 has not been issued for some time now - and I will almost guarantee that it WAS an HR24 or, at the very least, an HR23.

Why bash D* just for the sake of it?

Bad hard drive.. ?.. Power Supply?...

The amount of dust these receivers collect is amazing. A few good puffs from a air compressor can do wonders..
