    Hi guys,

    I'm tinkering around with a buddy's HR20 before my install next Monday and had a few questions..

    1) If the Hr20 is off, will it turn itself back on to record a scheduled recording?

    2) When you are recording something, and switch to another channel, is there a shortcut to just go back to the program recording, (like the down circle on TiVO)?

    3) Is there a way to set up a series link without having to go in your saved program menu? What is the easiest way to set up a series link?

    Thanks in advance.

    1) Yes (won't actually turn "on" but it will record just fine.

    2) "Prev" usually works or go to "List" screen and select the recording.

    3) Press on "R" twice in the guide for the program. 1-press for single record, 2-press for series link.

    1) The HR20 is never off unless you pull the power cord. You can put it into standby and it will record in standby. All that does is turn off the lights and the a/v outputs.

    2) No the HR20 does not have dual live buffers. So you can not just flip between tuners like you did on the TiVo.

    3) You can go into the guide find the series that you would like to recod and press the record button twice. The first time you press it you will get a R and it will record only that one episode. If you press it a 2nd time you will get a R)) and it will be set to record the series.

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    What about if I'm watching a show and want to make it a series link?

    Is there any hope that Dual Live Buffers will be added?

    Maryland,...
    If you want to set up an SL for a show you're watching (but not currently recording), two presses of the R button (as described above) will do it.

    Just bring up the guide and hit the record button twice.

    Maybe but DIRECTV has not said and they are not working on it right now at all.
