"Speed to get program list from channel tab." is listed as an improvement for 0x120. It was the only thing that I actually had to wait on my HR20 to do. Now, even that is super fast! :) I think "improvement" is an understatement.

"Speed to get program list from channel tab."
I don't exactly understand what that means, someone care to explain?

You can get a complete listing of the shows for a channel for the next two weeks. When in the guide or in the "single line" guide (Blue button), move to the left to highlight the channel. Hit Info. That will bring up the listing and used to take forever to gather all the data before presenting the screen. Now it brings up the first group of items very quickly! Very nice.

Cheers,
Tom

Woo hoo! Fast channel listings! All we had to sacrifice was the ability to record or playback shows.

I'm underwhelmed.

I did some detailed testing of the improvements in speed and compared them to 6-year-old technology in this post:

As an aside, if you have not yet taken the HR20 Site Survey - Finding the Cures, please take it today. We need as many people as possible to tell us about their setup, installation, usage, and problems.
