Just noticed this last night on my HR20-100S. Every time the unit is rebooted it comes back up on channel 201 instead of the channel you were last watching.

Is this happening for everyone else with a -100?

The few times I have reset it has done the same thing to me.

Just as a reference, this behavior DOES NOT occur on the HR20-700.

Both of my HR20-100s come up on the same channel they were on before the reset.

Several times I've turned my HR20 on in the morning and it is on channel 201. Weird! I guess mine was rebooted by D* in the middle of the night and it went to channel 201. I thought it was just me. ;-)
