Is it true that there is no manual sent with the HR24? I just received one and no manual. I called Solid Signal and they said they were no longer included and I'd have to download it. I knew the BBC's weren't included.

Thanks for the reply. It surprised me because my HR23 had a manual. Fortunately I've kept that manual.
Main reason I'm asking is that the HR24 box had been opened.
It looks like a new receiver because the protective film was still on it.
I haven't activated it yet because I'm still waiting for the BBC's.

Other than speed and the BBC//DECA, there really are no differences between the HR23 and 24 in use.

A 23 doesn't require BBC's, neither should a 24

The 24 does when not in a SWM environment. It has the DECA built in, not the BBC.

It's a non-SWM installation.
The HR23 went up in smoke, so that's why I'm replacing it. It had run continously for 3 1/2 years on an APC battery backup, so can't complain.

My HR24-500s came with the "DVR Combo Guide Version 3.4-110210" manual.

Mine's an HR24-100. I'm still wondering why the box it was in was opened.
I thought the manual might have been taken out and that's why I called Solid Signal.
