Upgraded from a SD reciever to the HR24. Very stylish looking compared to the other 2 DVRs I have and a much better response time with onscreen menus.

After upgrading through DirecTV and always receiving outdated refurbished receivers that looked like they had been in a knife fight, I read about Solid Signal. I am very pleased with my purchase. Received the HR24 very quickly and a Solid Signal representative called the day I received to ask if I needed any assistance getting it set up. I would recommend this site to anyone looking to upgrade and tired of the service they receive from DirecTV and I will be using them in the future.
Finally some HD

My old dvr finally quit (9 years). I updated the dish, which I installed my self and the HR24 HD DVR. My old one was a tivo unit which it worked like a champ. The hr24 works even better, it is just a bit slow sometimes when changing channels. Recording a show or shows is much easier than my old dvr. I also added an AM21 unit for some local channels that are not carried by directv, that is so cool that those ota channels show up on the guide and I can record them also.
Finally a non piece of junk!

I am so happy with this DVR.The previous ones I had were pieces of you know what that took forever to respond...when they worked.After several replacements by DTV (with the same model of course) I knew it was time for an upgrade.I also had the Whole Home DVR service installed and its awesome!
BEST Dvr to date!!!

Purchase two new DirecTV DVRs model HR24 from Read good reviews on the HR24 so I decided to upgrade my old HR20 and HR22 to the new HR24. After I received the new HR24 DVRs from and installed I was very satisfied with my decision to upgrade. Well worth the money to upgrade to the new DVRs. The speed of the HR24 is worth every dime I paid.
HR24 is great!

The HR24 HD receiver from DirecTV is very good in my opinion.I have an HR20 and a HR21 and this machine is a lot smaller and quite a bit faster.This receiver does not ship with b band converters however so if you have an older slimline unit and its connected directly or say to a WB68 you will need to purchase the BBC modules OR upgrade to a SWM8 switch OR change out your lnb head in your sliml

Finally A receiver that can change channels quickly. The older models (HR23 and older) are frustratingly slow. The HR24responds as you press the buttons on the remote.

I tried twice to get this DVR from DIRECTV as an upgrade.Both times I was sent a refurbished HR22 and Ive been a DIRECTV customer since 1998.DIRECTV says that they have no idea what is being shipped which is ridiculous and just poor business.They really hacked me off.Only after I threatened to cancel my service did they tell me about the Solid Signal website.Thank you Solid Signal for s

[...] They are functioning exactly as advertised.Unfortunately I purchased too many and needed to return two receivers.[...] I will definitely make future purchases with them.
Great DVR but no DirecTV discounts

I purchased a DirecTV satellite dish the HR24 DVR and the H25 receiver from Solid Signal. However because I did not get the equipment directly from DirecTV I lost the Whole Home $10/month discount. I received a letter from DirecTV stating that purchases from Solid Signal are not eligible for the discount. If I had known that I would have purchased and installed the satellite dish myself then ca

The DIRECTV HR24 High Definition DVR was purchased after we let Dish Network go. First I ordered this unit from DirecTV and they sent me an older model HR21 or something I called and complained and they advised they never knew what they would be sending. I sent it back to DTV and ordered from Solid Siginal. Got the correct product and have never doubted the product for a minute. I love being able
DirecTVs best by far
- North Country, orth Country -
I also have a DirecTV HR 23. This version responds much quicker to remote commands. Dont be afraid of buying from Solid Signal. DirecTV activated the receiver without any problems. If you get an HD DVR from DirecTV you dont know which model you will get and it probably will be refurbished. The price is the same.

Coming from an HR22-100 this was a *huge* upgrade!I knew the remote lag would be less but this really blew me away.It behaves and responds as fast as a non-dvr receiver.All remote functions receive a nearly instant response.There IS the occasional lag but its generally less than a second.I had originally tried CSR roulette with DirecTV and ended up with two replacement HR22s...which
