Advertisements Well the much-anticipated TiVo DirecTV THR22 has finally arrived. We have been what DIRECTV terms loyal customers since 1996 and had two DVRs; one DTV HD DVR and the other the old but reliable HR10-250 which was replaced with the new unit. One member of our household simply loves the TiVo interface and really does not care for DTVs version so we waited and waited and waited for this thing to come out. I must say that we really dont care much for most for latest features, multi-room etc (although the IPAD app is kind of cool) we just wanted HD with the TIVO interface. I elected for the self-install and the unit arrived within a few days of my order which honestly surprised me I had expected it to take longer and wasnt even sure these units were really available. The install was fairly simple but when I called to activate the unit it became apparent I needed B-Band Converters to receive HD that unfortunately were not included in my shipment. The folks on DTVs helpdesk obviously had not received any training on this unit and I was sent to specialist who was helpful and agreed to ship me the required converters, which arrived about 3 days later. The system functions as we expected (no IPAD app support) but I found the quality of the unit, particularly the remote to be very poor. The TIVO button has already broken and a new one is on the way. I attempted to get a real TiVo remote directly from TIVO but their units will not work with DTV hardware. The lights on the front of the unit are extremely bright, even when set to the lowest setting and there is no button on the remote to put the receiver to sleep. We have subsequently found out that this can be accomplished by accessing system settings and putting the receiver in stand-by mode, which is a terribly lame way to have to do it. All-in-all the unit provides the basics but is a disappointment and honestly I believe that to be DTVs intention.
