    I am surprised no one else is having audio issues with Pandora: Here is what I previously wrote somewhere else:
    Audio via coax digital

    This is an extremely significant problem: When playing Pandora, the HR20-100 "resets" the sound stream between each song. This causes a loud screech/pop/static between each song. But more important: It causes the sound system to reset, this causes the loss of the selected sound mode, requiring a manual selection of the sound mode between each song! In other words, it's doing what you would normally expect when switching between a 2 channel and 5.1 program. But it's doing it between each song. Also, though most people may not experience this problem: In our case this constant switching causes the first 1-2 seconds of audio to be lost. This does not happen when listening to Sonic channels and certainly should not happen when listening to Pandora.

    Once in Pandora, the sound should NOT reset between each track since there is no difference in audio format between songs. This not only happens during songs but we noticed it happens when doing anything on the Pandora screens. We just connected to Pandora and it's great but not practical to use with this bug.

    What he said ^^^^. Or get a remote with macros. There's very affordable ones out there.

    Love Pandora, like how fast the screen saver comes up and how quick the song information changes, if we could only get that on the Sonic Tap channels now.

    One thing I noticed is that the buffer goes away if you go into Pandora?

    Yes see below.

    On the new remotes the pause and play buttons are the same physical button.

    It's not an assumption at all. The pause and play buttons are the same physical button, that's a fact.

    Yeah, but that's your TV. You don't save any power on your DVR.

    The PIG still functions, aka it still acts as a Picture In Guide and shows you video. If they removed that function we'd no longer have PIG at all.

    Seemed like you were saying those new remotes were going to be used for all receivers in your other post which is an assumption at this point. That's what I was referring to.
    Currently they are only used for RVU client tvs and that's it last I noticed.

    Yes, but play and pause are the same physical button on the new remotes. You can't pause the PIG anymore so you can be able to play a recording from your list.

    And then what would you use to turn up/down the volume? Let's be serious... Volume up/down is key'd to your TV/AVR, not the DVR.
