    ATSC tuner works well, much better than HR20-100 OTA, just need signal strength capability.

    Media share works though I am trouble shooting a problem with Windows Home Server where it times out or has authorization issues.

    Noticed the substantial slowdown in system menus and guide.

    I had one instance where I lost the video on satellite and OTA, audio was still working and I could change channels but had a blank television. Powered the H21 off and on, didn't make any difference so I did a RBR which cleared the problem.

    Waiting for MRV to see the power of a HR20/21 DVR and H21.

    I had an issue while checking signal strength where the first 8 or so TP's on 99c showed zero's and then the remainder jumped back up to the high 80's, low 90's. Refreshing the signal strength readings appears to have resolved the issue. I haven't had an tuning issues that I've noticed as of yet.

    ATSC Tuner Sensitivity appears to be on par with the performance I'm seeing from my HR21-700/AM21 combo and better than my HR20-700.

    As you probably know, I'm still back on NR after my HDMI blew up on the new code, so I haven't been able to do anythign but troubleshoot that until I get another CE for it.

    I really enjoy the new software for the H21. Making it constant with the HR series is a move in the right direction. As others have posted the new software is slower when it comes to guide navigation. I am a big fan of Music Pic & More and it has been up and running on my H21 sense the push download. The AM21 integrates smoothly with the H21 and the new software.

    Plus for new software:
    Constant with the HR series
    Music Pic & More
    AM21 support
    Ability to send reports to DTV

    Negatives for new software:
    Slower guide navigation
    No Signal meters that work

    Just to note that I'll be out of pocket most of the weekend due to both my Fantasy football drafts and all the drinking that surrounds them. :) And actually I'll be gone Labor Day weekend as well so probably no new CE for me for at least 3 weeks. Sorry about that.
