I'm wondering what of the many issues posted here are related to bad hardware. I can suffer through the software and signal related stuff, but if there is something wrong with my box, I'd rather know that now vs 6 months from now when I've got 6 months worth of video stored and can't transfer it to my new box.

It has been suggested that some of the problems may be hardware related, but for sure several people have complained about bad tuners. From what I hae read that seems to be the biggest hardware complaint. I have aslo seen at least 1 HD complaint. Ohterwise most have been software related.

The "B-Band Converter" modules included with the HR20 seem to have a rather failure/problem rate. They're not needed until early 2007 when the new Ka-band satellites go active, so they can be safely removed for now. They often seem to cause "satellite not found" and other similar reception problems, though.
