Should I upgrade HR44-500?
I am a very long time DirecTV user and have had the same HR44-500 receiver for many years. It works fine -- my only complaint is that it's slow to use -- user interface does not respond quickly. My question is whether there is an advantage to upgrading the equipment. Parameters:
- I have just one TV (a plasma, so not 4K) and just one receiver; might add second TV in a few months
- No plans right now to change the TV. No 4K for me for a while.
But I suspect newer receivers must have some advantages -- but maybe not for me?
Thanks in advance!!
(By the way, I tried to get an answer from ATT/DirecTV support and omg what a runaround. After 25 minutes and talking to three people, getting some amazingly stupid questions and answers (I mean, amazingly), the third person finally told me the technical team is "unavailable" because they are doing a "system upgrade.")
