    Same here... I was a little surprised, but typically we only return the box anyway. Nice to have a couple of extra cables in case one goes bad, but not this time I guess.

    Excellent job... However, I wasn't able to view the photos :confused:. Probably something on my end... I check again later.

    So we shouldn't worry about putting anything else in the box (power cord, etc)?

    nope, it's not on your end for not seeing the photo's. i believe Stuart left them blank for he is still waiting on Tom & Doug to produce them.

    Just curious, I have mine already packed up ready for pick up. I did include the original power cord. Is there any reason I should hang onto that, or just go ahead since it's already packed and send it on.

    I've never had fedex do a pickup so I'm just supposed to call them up and say "I got somethin' for you to pick up" and they take care of the rest?

    i think that how it work. when you call tell them you already have a pre-paid shipping lable that needs to be picked up and shipped. they will probably give you a time they will be there.

    for me i'm just going to drop it off to a FedX store and get a shipment receit.

    just make sure on what ever way you wish to do. get a tracking number in case it is needed.

    Ok, thanks. I wasn't sure about the cord, when I sent back an HR 20-700 they asked for the cord back so figured I'd better err on the side of caution this time. It is tempting to have it as a back up but the box is all sealed now and ready to go.

    I know, I keep everything and now I've got more cables than I know what to do with :D

    But I was actually noting this in case the First Look needed updating as far as the "What's in the box" section.

    Here's a revised version. I'd say it's very close to final once I get the last of the photos.

    Very nice... Beautiful layout..

    I would also like to add that since the production version of the HR23-700 was delivered in the past couple of weeks, I have noticed the remote control response to be much better. My HR20-700 remote would sometimes send 2 signals from one keypress (papa bear). The original test HR23-700 remote would sometimes not respond at all to a keypress (mama bear). However, the production HR23-700 and remote control seems to work just right (baby bear).

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Actually I have the same response I have always had with Harmony 880... it takes careful aiming as always.

    I like the format and layout. It looks really clean.

    Nice work.

    Do you use Acrobat or do you "print" to a pdf file?

    Guess I'm against the norm here. I made sure only to take out the new receiver. I left all the "goodies" in the box as I had already received them and shipped them back. :)

    Adobe InDesign has the same AGM engine as Acrobat. It can import and export PDFs natively.
