I haven't been on here for a couple months and am shocked how things have changed. For one thing, I remember talk of the HR20 coming out soon. I have spent hours reading past messages on here and reviews but have a few questions.

First, the HD TIVO won't output standard video on S-Video and RCA out at the same time as outputting HiDef and component and HDMI. Since I run the output of the S-Video to a 3rd TV that isn't hi-def I'm wondering if the HR20 outputs to both at the same time?

Next, I see that the remote for the HR20 is now RF instead of IR. Is there an option of using it IR also. Reason I ask is I have two Hi-DEF TV's. One is where the HR20 would be located, the other on the 2nd floor of the house. I use a IR extender option now and would like to use this. If not though how far away would the RF work? Maybe that will provide enough coverage.

Last, I use harmony remotes for two of my TV's and am very happy with them. Will these work with the HR20? I looked at the harmony web site but find no mention of it but hope I'm overlooking it.

Thanks in advance for any help.

HR20 video/audio outs are ALL LIVE ALL THE TIME

The remote for the HR20 has both RF and IR

The Harmony remotes work beautifully. I use a 628 with no problems

List your device on the web site as HR20-700 and it comes up with the right codes.

Thanks. Glad the remotes do IR and it'll be great to still use my Harmony remotes. The fact that all remotes aren't live all the time was a let down with the HD TIVO. Glad that's not the case anymore. I just found the manual online so am printing that out as well to do some reading.
