    For 50 feet of phone cable you're not going to pay much at all, certainly not an arm and a leg. For a wireless phone jack, expect to pay around $40 - 50 I would guess (I have one but I bought it years ago).

    USB wireless adapters will NOT work with the HR20. If you want to go wireless you'll need a wireless bridge which will plug into the ethernet port on the HR20. Something like this should work fine:

    Correct. You can always order PPV via DTV's web site. That way, the movie becomes viewable on ALL your receivers and not the one on which you used your remote to order the movie.

    Personally I have the phone connection up on both of my HR20s. I enjoy the Caller ID feature.

    As a fine spy ones said while holding his thumb and forefinger about an inch apart - "missed it by that much." :lol:
