    Does someone have a link to what benefit there is to networking the HR20? (Besides Viiv)

    The D* CSR told me that they will eventually have "live voting" on TV (like American Idol) which the network connection will use. Also there is a Game Zone of some sort which sounded like it needed the internet.

    Anyone have a link to what is currently available if I connect to the internet? I have to go the wireless route, but not sure if it's worth it for me at the moment.

    Thanks!

    Right now the HR20 doesn't really do anything for you over the internet. It can share photo and music files with your PC on your home network.

    Eventually features like Video On Demand (VOD) and remote recording setup will require an internet connection.
