    Will this release only be for the 700 models and not the 100 models?

    Correct, there has been no word yet on when the next update will be available for the HR20-100.

    New HR20 owner/user here.... what is the reason they both don't get the same updates? Different hardware? Does individual software have to be written for each? I'm very interested in a couple of the new features listed in the Release Notes. How long does the 100 release typically follow the 700?

    Finally, and sort of off-topic, I have the 100. Should I be glad or sad?

    Thanks!

    Glanced at the new version, didn't see any problem right off. Delete is indeed there, both on menu and by red button.

    Was again reminded of a flaw not yet fixed: "Search" lists channels I don't subscribe to and there is no way for me to exclude those. I tested the new delete function with a recording made of PBS 384, which apparently I don't get but can record from the search.

    Ultimatelly... yes.. the HR20-100 will get it. And probably fairly soon.
    Internally, yes there is different hardware (just look at the pictures of the inside).

    So yes, another version has to be compiled for the different manufacturer.

    So far in the past, it has only lagged by a couple weeks at worse.

    Thanks, Earl. I appreciate it.

    If you don't want to commit to which is better, could you answer which is the latest (newest)? I think it's the 100 if I'm not mistaken?

    So this is exactly the same as the CE correct? So my box won't need to download this?

    If you have already downloaded the CE version of 0x18a your HR20 will not re-download it.

    Right....your box won't even try to get it, if it is the same. If you are a CE person (as I am), you will go through this every so often...you'll have the latest CE and a new NR (national release) is pushed....and you don't get it...because you already have it)

    Can you elaborate on Improved handling of ATSC tranmissions errors to improve OTA/ATSC compatibility?

    The HR20 was updated to handle inconsistancies in some ATSC/OTA broadcasts, better handling of non-comforming or bad information in the OTA stream.

    I must have got the update last night. The TV in my bedroom turned on by itself and the HR20 blazing blue light circle turned on (previously turned off). This is kind of an annoying "feature" for an update.

    The TV turned on? the HR20 doesn't have any ability to turn on a TV... (except via Remote control)

    Some TV's have one or two inputs that will automatically turn the TV on when they sense an input. I would assume in the process of the reboot, the signal went away, and came back. So, the TV "sensed" a new signal and turned on. Typically, this feature can be enabled/disabled.

    The 100 is the newer manufactured model.

    Is there any way to make the blue light status persist across reboots? If not, can we make this a wishlist item?
