Just got my two HR20's installed yesterday.
I think that the picture overall is sharper and better than the H10-250..
Only 2 slight problems/weirdness..
1.) Scheduled a recording on a channel I didn't realize I didn't get (Sprout).... when I went to play it, the rec gave me a message that my card was no longer autorized and it was searching for authorization... screen colors inverted, was slow to respond, but then was able to get out by pushing exit and erasing the programs... weird one...
2.) More pressing issue... when I turn my tv off and back on later, I get no picture on the set unless I toggle resolutions on the box... HDMI connection.
Hope they change the guide button to directly take you to the guide (having to push it twice is pretty stupid IMO)... and I miss the Tivo style guide, but I am so much happier with the speed of the box... I hope they will consider dual buffers...
But so far, a much better box, picture and speed wise, than the Tivo...
PS.. a note to those OTA doubters.. there is a sticker, obviously added later, on the box that say "Coming Later 2006 OTA functionality".. I am paraphrasing, but thats the gist.
