I've seen a red (not orange!) record light on the front of the HR20 twice. Once was last night and once was just now. I paused live TV just before 8:00 and took my son up to bed. I just came down and saw the red record light. I did a few things and eventually the light turned from red to orange. I noticed that it wasn't listing anything as recording in the My VOD screen. When I checked the History at 8:30 when the orange light went out, I saw that the half hour recording that was at 8:00 tonight was "Partial." So it looks like a red record light may go with the partial bug under some circumstances.
