I currently have a HR10-250 that is running over length compent cables to my front projector. I tried to go to Verizon FIOS, but could not due to the lack of output signal strength of their Reciever/DVR at the time. I am now thinking of upgrading to the HR20, but am concerned that the output will not be strong enough to drive the projector. I know that I could go to HDMI over twisted pair, but at $500, I am not crazy about that idea. Does anyone know about the signal strength of the HR20, with respect to how it compares with the HR10-250??

What length cable are you using to your projector? My brother is using a 30' to his with no trouble & also switched from the HR10-250 to the HR20.

Not 100% sure, but my guess would be between 50' and 60'.

Farrar, go to www.monoprice.com. I'm using a 35 ft HDMI that I paid about $50 for. It works flawlessly. Digital is digital. Either the signal will get there or it won't. With their prices so reasobale, make sure you go with a heavy gauge cable.
