I'm right there with you.
The delays in changing channels for me
I can't stand.
I have a mini 4K unit in my bedroom
And I'm constantly thinking about putting the
HR54 back in my room. Not sure why we can't
Have 4K on their best machine?
Direc needs to address this.

If this was just DirecTV they would have released a new client by now, but since AT&T bought them out Its really hard to think they would invest in new and improved hardware.
They could technically try to use the same technology that UVerse wireless receivers used, I heard the UVerse clients worked really well, especially the wireless ones.
The way my condo is designed the main receiver is upstairs and the wireless client is downstairs, it would be very ugly if they ran wires to the living room.

Either way both clients need huge improvements, sometimes because of the lag I type too many digits when changing channels.
This is really unacceptable.
Also fast forwarding or rewinding is dreadful because the slow response when you input a command through your remote.

I have Uverse as well.
Better receivers across the board.
Yes, Uverse wireless boxes are much better
Than the minis. Much more stable. That said
The entire Dvr set top units are better than Direc's.
a hybrid unit might not be a bad idea.
If I were Direct I would seriously revamp their current Dvr lineup.
Clunky and antiquated comes to mind.
