Advertisements I've had Tivo for 7 years now. I love the HR20 and plan to replace my remaining Tivo's with more of them. Frankly I could care less what software runs my DVRs. The DVR+ platform is the current one from DirecTV so that's what you get. Personally I really, really like the HR20 from interface to extras. There is only one thing I miss from Tivo: a working channels I receive list. Once that is fixed on the HR20 there isn't a single thing I would miss. And honestly there are only 2 other missing features for most people: Dual buffers and "advanced" wishlists. I used neither and thus don't care a bit about either one. The saved searches on the HR20 are plenty good enough for my needs. See, I went into the HR20 with an open mind and an attitude to try new things and for something new and fresh. Took me all of 10 minutes to get used to the HR20 interface and get comfortable. If you go in kicking and screaming you might as well just go to cable instead of torturing yourself.
