    An HR21 has arrived. My two-year-old is unpacking it as I type this.

    Here's a little info: The Mfg date on the unit I received is 10/6/2007. Talk about fresh from the oven.
    It's black, it's shiny and appears smaller and lighter than an HR20-700.

    I bet he went to your house first and has a lot of stops before getting to Leander. Fedex never gets out here until 3:00pm or later.

    Looks pretty almost identical to the 700. At first glance I can't tell any difference. Can anyone else?

    Can with 18A software, tried to do an upgrade to see if anything newer was out there, just kept looking for software so did a RBR to get it to boot up back up. Doesn't have the Hide SD channel option, looked for that right away.

    Looks like no DoD in this release. I tried the IWANTMYVOD search, nothing, do the IAMANEDGECUTTER got those menus (playlist sort) tried VOD again and still nothing.
