    I would have bought yours if it was available at the time I bought mine [I went for the "cheapest" 46" 1080p LCD from Sony].

    Thanks, that worked. I can leave it on HDMI now.

    Well it's probably a moot point now since Directv won't replace my Hr10 with an Hr20 for less than $299+$20 shipping even though they promised that they would when I paid $200 for my Hr10 1.5 years ago. Glad to see we have a company that keeps its word to its loyal cutomers. Basically they said they have given me too many credits because they gave me $200 off when I bought my Hr20 back in December and then they missed 2 appointments so they gave me credits for those. So because their installers are too incompetent to keep appointments Directv won't keep their word to their customers.

    I might still switch the DVRs on the different TVs. I'm not sure yet.

    I agree with NYHeel. SD channels will not look nearly as good as 480p DVDs. On my JVC rp set, I found a big difference with native on vs. native off. The HD picture especially was much better with native on, leaving the processing up to the television.

    The Samsungs have some DNIE [sic] and other processing that can seriously detract from the picture you see. Turn off all of the extra processing. It may already be off for your DVD input, but on for your HR-20 input. Check it.

    If you still don't get the results you want, go to avsforum for your particular tv and ask the same question there.

    Mooch

    Please excuse my DUH, as the bit rate between DVD & SD channels are worlds apart. Send the same DVD through and cable or SAT feed & you'll see the same degradation in PQ. The same would be true with HD & HD/bluray DVD. :)

    I have to give Directv some credit. I waited a month and spoke to them again and now they gave me the Hr20 to replace the Hr10 for $19.95 only. If I knock them, I have to give them credit when it's due.

    I've got a similar Samsung LCD TV and I also have similar problems. After this latest update I think it's been fixed though. I'm still trying it out.

    Just to clarify. It seems like many of the posts have it backwards (at least according to the manual). Native On means the HR20 is adjusting the resolution based on what is being broadcast. With Native Off the TV adjusts the resolution. I found with my set (JVC 37" LCD) that Native On with all resolutions checked looks the best.
