Product Shot 1 The Pros:User interface is fast and responsive. Remote control has RF mode, no need for line-of-sight. Separate ON and OFF buttons on universal remote.

The Cons:Receiver will not pick up antenna broadcast "freeview" content. Runs hot, shouldn't have anything placed on top of it.

The HR24 is a high-end DirecTV HD satellite receiver and DVR, to be released in early 2010 as the successor to the HR23. Among the changes are at least one additional tuner and MoCA technology, which allows the receiver to act as a server for multiple HD streams, meaning one unit could work simultaneously with several TVs in different rooms.
