Youre probably going to get a better Experience with a HTPC. From my experience all the so called Smart apps on your TV/PVR is **** and laggy.

Agreed, I mainly use an HTPC and my PS3 for any type of media playback, just so much better than my PVR.

Not to mention most PVRs have pretty crappy GUIs. I mean, they're usable, but definitely not anything beautiful to behold :P

The new HD DVR's (HR22-100) are a little slow (probably gimped by lack of ram) to respond compared to the old SD R15-500 we had. It does have some neat features. Like on Live broadcasts like the UFC 155 prelims, it thinks it might run over, it asked to add 30mins (which is the default setting) to it. Also seems to pick up the first few/last few minutes of shows like the Simpsons (which the old one would just cut into/run into the next one).

As far as the Smart features, yeah any one smarter than their TV/DVR should have a HTPC with a actual keyboard (wireless preferred) and far more flexibility to do as they wish.

I don't think it's just the RAM... the CPU isn't also designed for graphically intense apps.

I think it picks up a first few and last few Minutes of other Shows because of the Network programming and not really your DVR.

The old SD DVR would just cut into it or chop off the end and you had to add time to it. The new HD one seems to do it on it's own without having to add extra time.

Go to the Show in the To Do list select it and Record Settings (or something like that) You can have it start early or add extra time to just that one episode or the whole series. Of course you have to do it either before it starts or before it ends.

I always added 1.5 hours to the F1 races because of weather or other issues causing it ro run over.
