    Yes. The 100S that I received has an antenna in the box and selection on the menu. I was hoping they would both work at the same time so I can use the stock remote in another room and a universal remote in the living room, but I don't think it will do both simultaneously.

    When I compared my HR20-700 (x14f) with my HR20-100 I noticed that the Sat. signal strength on the HR20-100 was 2-3 points higher for all sats. then my HR20-700. Is there something internally different in the two boxes that might account for this or is 2-3 points not considered "statistically significant"?

    Just got the upgrade 0x146 for my black HR20-100 and the below guide trick does work and I'm getting over the air channels including 2-1 . Not sure what the vhf 2 and 3 issue alluded to elsewhere relates to.

    :welcome_s to the forum.

    Some [most] channel "2 or 3" HD are remapped from an actual UHF channel. There are a few that actually broadcast on low band VHF [like the "old" channels 2-6]. Before this software release, the HR-20 couldn't receive [tune to] these channels from OTA.

    I walked into bestbuy yesterday and asked if they sold those hdtv calibration dvds. They looked at me like I had just asked to purchase an 8-track player. "That disc is from the 90's only places like circuit city sell that stuff"....They then told me they do "professional calibration for 299.99.

    My 20-700 operates perfectly but now that the 20-100 has received its firmwhere upgrade I felt it prudent to again ask if there are enough bonafide reasons to switch from the 700 to 100?

    I have both & I wouldn't recommend the switch; the 100 still has problems with ota & with some local channels; the 700 gives more consistent recording results

    As far as consistency, my 100 has been flawless with it's recording over the last week. The only problem I've noted is the KXTV MP4 channel. And that just seems to affect us in the Sacramento market. Which isn't really that bad as I've set all my season passes for the KXTV OTA HD channel.

    Does anyone know how to get the volume control to default over to the receiver instead of the t.v. when in "D" mode? I have connected the hr20 to my DD receiver directly using digital coax but I have to switch the lever on the top to "av1" mode to change the vol on the receiver. This is a huge pain in the keester and any help would be much appreciated.

    I saw this in another thread, it might work:
    1) Program the TV codes while the slider is on TV.
    2) Program the stereo codes while the slider is on AV1.
    3) While the slider is on AV1, hold down the select and mute buttons until the light blinks twice and enter 9-9-3. Then press SELECT.

    To take advantage of a feature my plasma HDMI connection has I need to output from the HR20-100 a RGB signal. Is there any way to do this?

    Thanks All

    That's not what I meant VOS. I need to change the color space signal to RGB in the HR20-100. Is this posible?
