    I am so glad to hear this. I've gone through like 8 hard drives in my T60s so far.

    Finally.
    Where'd Tivostuff.com go anyway?

    Well, only if you live in the "select areas" where it is being rolled out now. Otherwise it's still waiting time. However, the announced specs are quite underwhelming.

    Well said. DBStalk also has some pics of the GUI, I feel like I'm back in time on my HR10-250
    Two DSR7000s both at 6.4a/101 from slices; both originally sleepered version 3, then 4.01b, 6.2, 6.2a.
    TWP 2.1, Superpatched, 300GB Seagate in one, 750GB in the other, USB 2 w/ Jamie's backport drivers
    One HR10-250 at 6.4a, networked, Superpatched, stock 250GB drive
    One HR23
    Patiently waiting for a new DirecTV/Tivo
    One AM21 hooked to the HR23

    Nevertheless, it is what many people want - an HR10 with current HD capability. They got that. My wife would probably find that just fine.

    True. Until she discovers that for the same money she could have gotten something that has many more features AND is significantly faster. The new DirecTiVo HD-DVR is based on the HR21/HR22 (same hardware, different size hard drives), the slowest of the DirecTV HD-DVRs. The HR24 is much faster.

    Yes, the UI is different, but a child can learn the DirecTV UI. As a matter of fact, my 6 year old grandson is currently teaching our 74 year old house guest the DirecTV UI.

    My wife doesn't care. We have an HR21 - she hates the UI (even the new HD one.) I think it's largely because she has preferred to stay on the HR10, but she says she "doesn't care about HD". It's just stubbornness, I am sure, but it's not something worth arguing over. I will probably replace the HR10 with the THR22 when it is available nationally.
