    I haven't been here in a long time. Is there anyway at all to transfer shows from one box to another? I've been waiting 3 years for it to come out but not having whole house hook-up is a deal breaker for us.

    Everyone complaining about features not included on the THR22, think way back to the series 1's and 2's, they didnt have MRV or tivoweb or half the bells and whistles until the tivo community added them. Just sit and wait, i am confident the features will come

    I have one box, a SD-DVR80. If I replace it with this new box, am I going to be charged both a DVR fee and Tivo fee?

    Does anyone in the available markets have an HR22. I just had two very old HDVR2 tivo receievers replaced with Dtvs r16s and I really do not like them. I loved the others features, especially the ability to bounce back 30 min. on either reciever with just a single push of a button. Wondering if it will be worth the money and eliminate some of my frustration to buy the HR22s

    Do you mean THR22? HR22 is a different experience.

    Actually, I had one of the first 14-hour TiVo's and with a choice (as I best recall) of $9.95 per month, $99 per year or $199 for Lifetime service. BUT as TiVo continued to download new software, all of a sudden, it could no longer control my 'separate' DTV receiver.

    Philips was coming out with their two-channel record Combo DTV - TiVo box in April of that year, (but pending the second record channel software available in September.)

    I bought into that, but when I mentioned the 'Lifetime' license, it was "Oh No - that goes with the old box!" I say "You've messed with the software and now it doesn't work, and I should pay another 'Lifetime?' As a result, they Grandfathered me in, with the new Phililps.

    Prior to DTV, Tivo was collecting the fee, but after DTV took over, they started charging only $5 bucks per month. Grandfathered in, I STILL don't pay DTV for the $5 TiVo fee. (Just a little Early TiVo History!

    I'll say! AN THR22-100 is also different experience, all together! Has anyone else had this problem with a THR22-100? They installed mine on the 19th of December 2011. I've been awaiting this for so long!

    But I spent one hour with a DTV "TiVo" tech (special category tech, now!) with this problem. I have a fairly recent Sony Receiver with 4 HDMI inputs, currently serving two HR10-250s, a TiVo Premiere XL standalone and the new THR22-100 DTiVo.

    With the THR22-100 using an HDMI input, I've found when playing Local broadcasts (ONLY) that while the 'sounds' in a recorded or live show are Normal, the 'speech' of the actors and the 'live people' are way down in the dirt, and unintelligible.

    I'd love to have an answer to this one! If no one else is having the same problem (using the HDMI output) maybe I have a bad THR22?:confused:

    That sounds like your Sony Receiver is trying to extract center channel information for 5.1 from what the THR22 is outputing and having trouble doing so. Some receivers have a mode that tries to construct 5.1 sound out of a stereo source by (for example) examining the stereo input to find embedded sounds that are of roughly the same volume in the left and right channels and separating that to output to the center channel and subtracting it from the left & right front channels. Some things to check:

    1. Do you have a 5.1 speaker setup? If not, make sure your receiver isn't trying to convert to 5.1.

    2. Try turning off the 5.1 processing modes in your receiver and tell it to just output stereo. See if the sound improves.

    3. Make sure your left & right speakers are properly in phase. Double check your speaker cables to make sure you didn't accidentally swap polarity on one of them.

    4. Check the audio on the broadcast source. I don't know if the software on the THR-22 has the audio information in the "info" banner, but if it does, see if the program is broadcast in stereo or 5.1 digital. If you can select a different audio track on the TiVo, see if that changes for the better.
