    The HR20's ability to record a series link from the guide without interrupting the program you are watching is great. The ability to look at the guide while you are watching a recorded show rocks too.

    I love the potential that the HR20 has to offer. It's just not ready for prime time yet.

    However, there are quite a few problems with the HR20 and the final straw was when it didn't record 2 days worth of shows while I was gone. The record light was on and the unit was locked up.

    I'm still a D* customer and have 2 HR10 with the new software and love them.

    I really love the S3, but it's a bit pricey and I hate TWC's customer service, but I get HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and Starz in HD, and more HD channels then D* offers at the moment.

    I really wanted to love the HR20, but right now I can't stand it. The HR20 makes a lot of noise that I don't experience on my other DVR's and this is my second unit.

    So, I'll leave the beta testing to the experts. I just want to be entertained.

    The S3 is very entertaining and looks great. I love the network features. Playing podcasts and my MP3's through my S3 are my favorites.

    As i have just logged back in, i moved the thread to that area by mistake by clicking the wrong destination forum. I too thought it would be better suited in the TiVo forum. Thanks to Clint for clarifying it and whoever moved it back here. No problem on my end, since i gladly admit to the mistake. Maybe i should get an "infraction" for my mistake. :rolleyes:
