    anyway hidden tricks to control the hr20, your tv, AND a/v receiver in dtv mode instead of having to slide the control over to av1, av2, etc?

    About the best you can do is this:

    In dtv mode it can control the hr20, the tv input, and power I think, and the volume on your av receiver. I find that more than adequate for my situation. Now my tv and av receiver have so many other functions, that it just doesnt seem even remotely feasible to find an inexpensive remote to be able to control all the functions of any of those components without actually switching the dials. The Harmony remotes work great, but a good one is well over $100, which I dont really consider inexpensive amymore.

    I have the same situation. The HR20 Remote will control the reciever volume and power the tv and HR20 in one press but not the Reciever. I have to slide it over to power the reciever. Would be nice to have it power all three.

    Not really the answer you're looking for, but... I recently bought a Harmony 880 remote. It's amazing. Controls everything -- my TV, AV receiver, HR20, Helios x5000, etc. I haven't touched any other remotes since.

    Really only a macro capable remote will do what you want, and again, any decent are not really what I consider inexpensive. It gets expensive to be lazy!!!

    I was able to get an MX-500 from Amazon for about $60 a couple of years ago. It's usually alot more. Check ebay, also. There are good deals out there.
