i don't know why that hasn't been my experience with the HR20 :/ the moment the HR34 is available to me, that hr20 is going into the dumpster. i own it so i'm going to destroy it. pass the hr24 into the bedroom and the HR34 will have its new home in the family roomH25 is a very small receiver
as for DVR's HR24 is the newest but with the HD GUI coming out most of the DVR's have the same speed now. My R22 is blazingly fast
yes you can but unlike the other receivers that can just have BBC connectors slapped on to get HD the H25 can ONLY use SWM....
and in the above case you need 4 lines from the dish to the switch. So unless you have some older receiver it isnt practical. Because if you have the older LNB setup and more than 2 DVR's or 4 receivers you need a 6x8 switch and 2 lines to each DVR. So you'd swap the 6x8 for that but then you'd have the splitter right by it too....kinda overkill again unless you have some old receivers
I was a little concerned when I looked at the back of the H25 and didn't see any component connnections, because two of my tv's are a little older and don't have HDMI connections. The installer said not to worry, he would get a couple of "serial" cables. Went out to his truck and came back with two cables which certainly look neater than three component cables and two audio.H24 has a bunch of connections (hdmi, component, a/v)
H25 is HDMI only unless you get the component "cable" that attaches to it
Nice cable. About the thickness of an HDMI cable and then at the end breaks into the leads for the component and audio connections. Makes things look much neater than what I had previously.Ya. The H25 has an "A/V out" connection. The serial connection you speak of is a mini din 10 connection. I can't find any online. Might call directv and ask for a spare. Always good to have a spare.
