    Astronomically high odds against that happening. Just getting one that works properly would be against the odds.

    I tried it and it worked almost immediately. I know it is a dtv feature they just added, but how does a regular joe know about this stuff. Most users don't look at this forum, so it is supposed to appear magically? The notification process on lots of D* stuff is weeks and months behind implementation. Doesn't say much about corporate management does it?

    Then again, perhaps that gives them more time to shake out any bugs before the larger majority of their users know about the feature. Maybe management does know what they are doing.

    Joe doesn't know about 30 SKIP or other features that you can only find out about on sites like this either.

    Point taken - so would they send me a more updated model?

    The only HRs better than a 20-700 are the 24s. Well, the 24s are faster, whether they hold up as well is still unknown.

    You might get a Refurbished HR20-700 or some other comparable refurbished model. Depends upon what is in stock.

    That would be fine as long as it works, is an HD DVR with the same amount of disc space, connects to the internet and has OTA......

    The HR20's are the only DVR's that have OTA built-in. I believe the HR22 and HR23 have slightly larger hard disks and the HR24 has a much larger hard disk.

    "as long as it works" is a key point here...:D

    However I believe they will send you an AM21 Free if they can't send you an HR20 as you will need to get OTA.

    My hr20-700 seems to be having more audio glitches lately. Wonder if it's 0x456?

    Hr 21s got Youtube today. SW is 0452 but they did get reset over night. Did not need to use the code, it just came on by itself.

    Haven't been on this forum in a long time. I've got the WH DVR setup with a H24-100 and 2 H21-200.
    The H21-200 in master bedroom has had to be unplugged a couple times to get it to turn on but last
    night that didn't work. Unplugged overnight and also hit reset button but no luck.

    Any ideas?

    If I have to replace the unit I think I'll just get another H24 so I can see the on demand menu in that room.
    Are there any issues with doing that?

    Well I swapped out the dead receiver with one from another room and at least have TV in the master bedroom again.
    I noticed the dead one is cool to touch while the other boxes are warm. I'm guessing a dead power supply.

    Now to see if I can get another H24 DVR for a replacement.

    Is UTube now working? If so, how do you use it?

    The RAIDON|GR3630-2S-SB2+ box didn't work for me with HR24/500 and 0x452 firmware. A WD15EVDS drive that works fine in a single drive Vantec enclosure doesn't work when put into this RAIDON box either alone or in a pair with WD15EURS. The box successfully duplicated the WD15EVDS to WD15EURS though. So, when I put the EURS drive into the Vantec enclosure, it worked! Looks like 0x452 indeed killed the ability for HR24 to work with this box too.:(

    3 HR20s and 2 HR21s and YouTube is working on all of them. The HR20s got a SW upgrade and I needed to type in the Keyword search to activate it. The HR21s just reset a few days ago and it worked.
