    Mine said June 28th, 2007. So I would say that these are very much hot off the press.

    I'm hoping mine is with the afternoon delivery at work, if not, I guess it's going to be left outside at home. Hope they remember to put it by the side door.

    Mine was also 06/29/07. Made in China.

    Spanky, no dog but 3 killer cats. :lol: I always set the alarm before I leave and I have a daughter who works for the county. The deputys can get here quickly. However, let me know if you want to come over and take a look. :D The same goes for anyone else here in Austin.

    One other note. The blue ring is on the dimmest setting and I cannot change it to different brightness settings or off like on the HR20. I will refrain from doing a reset just for that until I have some more important reason.

    They are hot off the press. The H21's that were sent to some of us were only 2-3 weeks old.

    I was scrambling to get back to work but what I did was set it to the static IP of the decommissioned HR20. I also added the MAC to my allowed list. I'll reset to defaults and see what it does when I get home. This is way odd because the "G" light comes on for a bit and then disappears. If I stll have problems tonight I'll take it in to replace my hardwired one and see if it's a wireless issue. I've also rebooted the router.

    Now that I chased the FedEx guy down the street with a butterfly net so he would stop and drop off the box... :lol:

    Mine is here. Hallelujah. :)

    Since others are doing such a fine report job, here is my short report, and alot of photos....

    As you will see, I have included several photos – including the box as it arrived, what came inside the box, and of course, the HR21 itself.

    I’m sure you’ve already noticed that this unit has a black outer case, which many of us anticipated. The form factor on the case is a basic replica of the HR20 unit only sleeker becuase of the finish and some "rounding" of corners.

    The unit comes with a 320GB internal hard drive.

    The photo of the back of the units shows all the connections and ports. As you see, there are 2 Ethernet ports (one with a “plug”), apparently for future use. There are also 2 sat in connections, 1 HDMI port out, Component connections, digital and optical audio output, Front and rear USB ports, as well as an eSata port (hurray!). There is also a neat new Access Card with a sat photo on it.

    The unit feels measurably lighter than my HR20, but I’d have to check further to compare their weights later – the HR21 is about the same physical size as the HR20. Since it doesn’t contain tuners for OTA, the slightly-lighter weight doesn’t come as a real surprise.

    Once I opened up the package, I read through the instructions quickly (yes, I know this is a big no-no, but I wanted to make sure there wasn’t some kind of surprise warning or anything.

    I plan to connect the unit in my Family Room (moving my current receiver to another room). It will be connected to one of the SWM5 ports (probably my FTM port 1 via a splitter just waiting for it.).

    There will be more info and photos coming in my HR21 report part II ASAP, after the install and setup are done.
