Maybe it's just me then. I have tried that HR20 remote and I absolutely loathe it. I think I will cling to my HR10 until the last pixel of HD content is disabled on it by DirecTV and then I'll pray to the good lord above that Dish or TW or someone else links up with Tivo, or DirecTV provides an alternative remote to their current one. Woe is me, woe is me!
I wasn't that crazy about the HR20 remote so I bought a Harmony and love it. But I wouldn't let a remote stop you from enjoying the upcoming HD mp4 content. Maybe they have a 12 step program for remotes?
