    I just got a H20-100 from Directv yesterday and it doesn't have an ethernet port like the HR20. What's the deal with that?

    The HR20 is the more advanced product - the H20 is just for basic HD program viewing.

    So I guess no VOD on the H20.

    That would be correct.

    VOD schemes from DBS providers, whether satellite or broadband delivered, require mass storage to buffer the program.
