Installed easily and works great.

We were not notified our contract would be extended if we upgraded our equiptment, until we called to inquire about why there was a "leased receiver" fee on our bill.

By the time we figured this out (we thought it was us, not wanting to believe that we had been duped) they refused to correct THEIR mistake.

I bought the HR 23 Receiver, I thought, as it said shipped and SOLD by Hidef, turns out to be a LEASE, I wish somebody WOULD MAKE THIS CLEAR it their copy... The minute you are a Directv customer this is their property basically, and they want it back or a hefty fee if you cancel your service with them. I found this whole transaction deceptive ... WE NEED FULL DISCLOSURE, TRANSPARENCY PEOPLE ...

The HD Box works fine. Plug it in, activate it through Direct TV... and it works. My disappointment is in the shady business practices of Direct TV. You are not BUYING this receiver, although the product description would imply that you are. According to the customer service agent I just spoke with, you are not able to BUY any receiver through any retail outlet - they are all sold as "leased products." As noted in the fine print (supposably), Direct TV only leases their boxes. As soon as you activate the box through Direct TV, it's theirs. You will be charged a $5 monthly "leased receiver" fee, despite the fact that you "purchased" the box from a retail outlet. If you do not return the box, to them, when you're done with their service, they will charge you a hefty fee for keeping the box. (The box you paid for through a different retail store.) Also, you are required to extend your contract, with Direct TV, for two years when you add or upgrade equiptment. If you cancel before the 2 years is up, you're hit with another hefty "early termination" fee. Even if you are to "borrow" a receiver from someone else, you must pay for a new access card (so it can be linked to your account) and they will still charge you a $5 monthly fee, although they call the fee a programming access fee, rather than a leased receiver fee. Rediculous! Buyer, beware!

We were upgrading our equiptment to receive HD programming. We were not notified there would be a $5 lease fee, up front. We were not notified our contract would be extended if we upgraded our equiptment, until we called to inquire about why there was a "leased receiver" fee on our bill. I am really disappointed in the manipulative business practices of Direct TV, at this point. I guarantee I will never "renew my contract" with this company, again.

The increased storage capacity allows for recording of up to 100 hours of MPEG-4 HD or up to 400 hours of SD programming.

The front panel lights are much more subdued then the previous HR2x's from DirecTV. It's also quieter then previous models.

Its quiet operation and subdued lights even make it friendly for use in the bedroom.

From the most sophisticated home theater to the living room television, the HR23-700 will be a fine addition to the any home.

However, contrary to the description IT DOES NOT HAVE BUILT IN B-BAND CONVERTERS. IT HAS WIDE-BAND TUNERS SO THE BBCs ARE NO LONGER NEEDED.

Everyone seems to think they need to purchase receivers from outside retailers. I call DirecTV each time a new or better receiver comes out and ask them to upgrade it. They will send you their latest technology (including Sattelite Dishes, if needed) at NO COST. They do their equipment upgrades complimentary and usually ship them Free next day air. There will always be a $5 lease fee to have an extra box, but it should only be if you have more than one box. Your first box does not have a lease fee. If you get your receiver free from DirecTV then they do own the box and would want it back. If you do for some reason purchase it from a retailer than you do not have to surrender it to them upon cancellation of your service. Their sales people are a little direct and aggressive, but if you ask to speak with their supervisor right away, they will handle everything the way you want it. Especially if you have been with DirecTV for a while. I've been a customer for over 9 years and they have always surpassed by expectations with complimentary upgrades and they are one of the few companies I know that will allow you to switch your rate plan to one of their current specials. You don't have to be a "New Customer" which is great to know you are getting the best current deal possible.
The Tail doesn't wag the dog. You pay DirecTV, they will do what you want to keep you as a customer, you just have to insist on it. ALSO, if you do get a sales person who says you can't have what you want, all you have to do is say "I want to speak to someone about cancelling my account". That's when you can speak with their "negotiator". That's when you get the best deals- you will not only get what you want, but they will usually throw in Free HBO or Showtime for 6 months in addition. Once you establish yourself as getting what you want, they do make notes on your account. Who cares if their internal notes say I am a Jerk. They next time I call, they don't bother arguing with me.

Verified Purchase
I bought this HD DVR (HR23-700) a few days ago to replace a HR21-200 receiver and I also have a HR21-700. This receiver has twice the HD storage capacity than the H21-700. Works like a charm. I can't wait to put it through it's paces. The picture quality is OUTSTANDING in HD and can receive 1080p Directv programming. My display is a Sony KDS-60A3000. Shipping was very fast and the price is the lowest out there. When I was on the phone with Directv activating the receiver, I asked the agent to check the receiver ID to see if the receiver was in fact "Brand New" or reconditioned/refurbished. The agent assured me it was "NEW". Remember, you are getting a Leased Receiver. Directv reduces the price in half if you lease. The only problem they won't sell you one as "OWNED". That is why they charge a hefty fee if a leased receiver is not returned. If you could buy an "OWNED" receiver it would cost easily twice as much as a leased one. It came with remote, access card and a not to shabby HDMI cable. I was expecting a piece of junk/low quality HDMI cable but the one that came with the receiver was of pretty good quality. The rest of the cables are inferior, in my opinion. Remember, you are only as good as your weakest link. The VOD (Video On Demand) feature is great also. You can even download in HD. Many, many choices but anything recent there is a charge. No Cons, but Directv should look into keeping up with the times by having a DVR that can record 4 different programs and also being able to view your programming in another room from the DVR. I will never go back to cable TV!!!
