    I'm scheduled this week for my first HR20/21.
    This will replace one of my HR10-250s.
    Which model should I expect and which is best?
    20/21 - 100,700............

    I'm getting one tomorrow and I'm curious now. My first two were -700's and my most recent one (in June) was a -100.

    I would suspect that you will get an HR20 as the HR21's probably aren't in the local supply chains yet.

    The major difference between the HR20 and HR21 is that the HR21 lacks OTA

    As for the difference between the HR20-700 and HR20-100 - they're functionally identical machines. The -700 has top vents and runs hotter, the -100 has side & bottom vents and runs cooler.

    No OTA? Wow, I definitely hope I get an HR20. Although I only really use it for Smallville at this point, I like knowing that it's there in case of heavy rain or whatever.

    I believe the -100 also has a coaxial digital audio output, in addition to the optical. Correct?

    Yes that is correct the -100 has both and the -700 only has a digital optical.

    .....and there are way more -700s out there than -100s; so the liklihood of CE participation is greater (at the moment) with the -700.

    Correct. I don't have a -100, so I tend to forget this. The HR21 has the extra digital audio output also.
