I just picked up a new HR20 at BestBuy and it was nice to find an HDMI cable in the box. There was also a component cable set, an Svideo cable, and Composite cable with RCA audio. There was also an optical and a phone cable. It's clear they are packaging them so the installer won't have to fetch any cables to get them installed.

As for the new one being any better than my old one? Doesn't look like it. It had the same original software on it, and within a few minutes of being on did download the latest.

I think it is great that they sent you a new unit. Many have gotten referbs.
