I hate these ce's!
I always have trouble downloading since, i moved all irds to garage and use cone shaped repeaters at each tv.
Having all irds in garage really cuts down on the heat in all tv rooms. I have to enter 02468 upto 25 times before download annoying as sh*t, but i eventually get them.
I try to enter these codes with directv rc24 remote or my harmony 520, lots of time i goto garage in front of ird and enter codes or do it through cone shape repeater. It just irks me to try and download on 2 machines every week seems to take out 45-75 minutes for a 10 min download! Got 1 so far today gonna try some more before i give up tonight and try again tomorrow night.
0241 on both machines:cool:
UPDATE, Of course after rant 2nd machine downloads on 1st try through cone shaped repeater.
Murphys Law lol!
I feel better now!:D


Why not use RF mode?

I use slingbox so I also use IR repeaters.
I have these, and rarely have problems with any missing button presses, and 90% of time my 02468 works flawlessly.

This 0241 release seems to be a mutt for me and my HR21-700. Accessing Media Share was unbearably slow, and after finally exiting it, remote response went down the crapper. The system wouldn't access the guide, setup, etc. and wouldn't even shut off. I had to do a reboot to get remote functionality back.

I still say I want my TiVo back.

Performance is fine on my HR21-200. Guide performance seems smoother. The Nascar race on Fox displayed very smooth being replayed on the DVR.
