Just make sure it's actually owned by giving the RID to the access card department, though it is possible for someone to give you an RID that is clear, and you actually receive something else.
If you want coax audio, you would need the -100.

Get the RID from the prospective seller and give DirecTV a call. It could be a deactivated and previously leased HR20 that they told the susbscriber not to bother sending back. If that is the case it is entirely possible they will not activate it.
The -100 will require a band stop filter if you are going to install it into a SWM/WHDVR environment. The -700 will not.
I personally am quite happy with my HR20-700. I use OTA extensively so the integrated ATSC tuners are valuable to me and quite honestly it is a bit faster I think than the other DVRs I have (R22, HR21 & HR22) with the add-on AM21. In fact my HR22 may be the slowest of them all.
