    Not really sure, 70" Sharp Aquios(spelling?), had a real nice picture.

    Not as good as my Sony or Panasonic of course, They dont auto rename their HDMI inputs though.

    It's a press and hold for the TV input and the format is now part of the banner drop downs.
    New remote "sucks" :lol:

    I figgured the info banner part out for format. When I got home I checked my HR 24 and see it there too.

    So press and hold enter will get me TV input?

    Thanks. Your Da Man.

    This might really suck there are a lot of folks that dont have the remotes for their TV's. The TV's dont have an input button on the front panel. I have to program the remote just to get a picture. I guess it is what it is.

    RC65 in the back pocket.

    Some like the new remote, but the missing buttons make it a pain if you're used to the older remote. "Where's my stop button?" :(

    You can still go list & play, but you now have to exit to stop and then go back to the list and find the recording for deleting.
    List-play-stop had you right back to the recording ready for deleting.

    Or just FF to the end, then select "yes, delete". ;)

    You have to hold it down for a few seconds.

    Not if you save recordings. :)

    The stop button is a pretty important button, at least for myself and others around here.

    Then select "No, don't delete". ;)

    But I agree, the stop button should have been kept, along with the color buttons, and an added PIP button

    Less buttons on the remote equals to more button presses.

    A play button without a stop button is like having an on button without an off button.

    On the new remote you have to use either "exit" or "back". Pause and play are now the same button, another thing I don't like about the new remote.

    It was short task: using EHD to discover HW parts of HR34:
    - pace_board_info_init: HMC30 version 14 (DTV HW 2.4), BCM7400E0, 512MiB RAM
    - CPU frequency 405 MHz
    - ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
    - Vendor: ATA Model: ST1000VM002-9ZL1 Rev: SC12
    - StbConfig:createStbConfig Num ATSC = 2. Num AMC = 6. Num Sat = 6. Total = 8 (tuner's count; AMC is sat tuner)
