    Are the only differences between the HR24 and 34 that one has 5 tuners vs 2, and double the hard drive space?

    I think you pretty well summed it up. What else are you looking for?

    The HR-34 is definitely equipped with better hardware, with the ability to record five shows at once, 100 timers vs. the HR-24's 50, double the harddrive and it has PIP. However, the software for the HR-24 is currently better than the software out for the HR-34. Even the beta or CE software that is out for the HR-34 isn't up to par with the national release software on the HR-24, yet. We are all hopeful that HR-34's national release software will someday have the same features (HD-GUI, Pandora, YouTube, functional TV Apps, and full support for 2TB external harddrives) and stability that the HR-24's currently offers. The good news is that those of us testing the CE software for the HR-34 have seen some improvement and have seen some of these features in the new software that has been coming just about every two weeks. We all hope that someday the software for the HR-34 will be as good as or better than the software for the HR-24.

    The HR34 is a great product. They just got to upgrade the user interface to match the other HD Receivers.

    The HR-34 is an amazing piece of hardware. The software will catch up in time, I only had problems with mine in the first couple of days I had it though. After that it has been very smooth besides an odd timer getting hung up here and there.

    Thanks everyone. I was just looking on the D* website and saw how they were compared to one another and wanted to see from forum users if there was anything that had been left out.

    timers means the series recordings. You can have it set to record all the new episodes of a show (or all episodes). The max amount of series on the HR24 is 50...on the HR34 its 100

    I dont know the actual timer recording maximum (including one time recordings and episodes of a series to be recorded)
