    I greatly perfer the speed and true 30 sec. skip of the 722, but there is one feature in particular that makes the HR20 series a must-have for me. Maybe I don't know the correct terminology, but I don't see it listed.

    When both tuners are in use, and you have back-to-back recordings, the HR's maintain all their record paddings (start early / end late). The 722's can't do this. With shows ending late (especially ABC), the end of all those shows get cut off when using a 722 no matter how much end padding you set up for your recordings. It is a huge problem if you do a lot of recording and need both tuners simultaneously.

    The HR2X's have a 30 second skip, you just need to enable it. Using the smart search do a search for 30skip and select all for the category, it won't find anything but it will enable 30sec skip, to go back to the default do the search for 30slip.

    It's still 90 minutes per tuner. :)

    All of those models are pretty much obsolete now. What's your question?

    In another 50+ days it will be eight years old (perhaps more than a lifetime in CE equipment terms). The OP was posted on August 18, 2007 and a great deal has changed since then.
