    Using HDMI, have a CE release, no slide, no audio coming over the HDMI or the composite cable into a SD tv.

    I suppose nearly everyone else has chipped in, so I might as well.

    Of 3x HR20-700s:
    2x are Component w/ optical out
    1x is HDMI and optical out

    499 was good
    498 is good
    480 and 481 are both good

    Signals for 103b are upper 70's (min) to lower 90's (max). While not perfect, it's enough to have received everything so far.

    I missed being able to test the 9000's, as well. Otherwise, everything has been 100 percent.

    Well, crap, there went my theory.

    I am HR20-700, have video, but occasionally have to do a few flips to get it up, but have NO audio. Not sure why.

    I am using HDMI as well, but not optical audio, just using audio thru the HDMI to the TV with digital coax going to my receiver. Oh well, at least the slide comes up.

    Music with the D* stock HDMI cables on H20-100 and HR20-100

    Just a thought...
    You may want to check your TV's / Pre-Pro / Receiver menu to be sure Dolby Digital (or whatever they are using) is enabled on your equipment.

    Was fine on 498 until sometime yesterday. The only notable difference between then and Friday afternoon was that I'd put in CE 0x19D. I'm still able to get 498, but now it sometimes takes some coercing. Just a little rewind/FF bump seems to be enough to make it catch, but prior to yesterday I hadn't had to do anything like that. I am getting audio, too, since that's been added, but it got quirky before the audio was present ... I'm 99% sure, anyway.

    Using HDMI, native res. Optical audio straight to the amp.

    "confirmed working" on 480 & 481. Black screen on 498.


    My second HR20 was locked up (video and audio ok, but couldn't change channels, menu, etc.) so I power cycled it. After it came back up, I went to 498 and got the "Congratulations" screen with music. I power cycled my 1st HR20 as well, and went to bed.

    Got up this morning to check, and now both HR20s are black screen only with no sound on 498.

    x18a code, HDMI on both

    Thanks! I called DirecTV and someone's coming out Tuesday... no doubt the same guys that put it up it the first place, but whatever. The CSR was surprised I got my HD locals since I'm only getting 35-40% on 103a, too. Anyway, thanks everyone.

    And whats this I keep seeing about D* providing HDMI cables? I had to supply my own with my HR20-700. I feel ripped. :) j/k

    And, yeah, I know DD works fine on mine. Watch several things all the time that uses DD 5.1 and it always works no matter the source.
