Welcome to the forums! :welcome_s (and glad we could help.)St8kout said:Hi guys.
I've spent the afternoon reading this forum and gleaning a wealth of info about the HR20. I now know something about BBC, FTM, MDU, AT-9 and Slimline dish, UNOFFICIAL HR-20 Tips and Tricks, HR-20 Installation Tips, HR20 Flaws and Workarounds, and on and on.
But, more importantly, I've learned that I should stay the h*ll away from the HR20 and be content with my H10 until Directv fumigates the bugs out of it, as I don't really care to be their beta-tester. There was a time when I had no problem being part of the first end-user crowd for new products, but not anymore. The real deal-breaker for me was reading about the lack of OTA integration. I really enjoy that feature with my H10 and don't want to do without while waiting for an update.
Anyway, I enjoyed reading the forum and short of Directv giving me a free HR20 for Christmas, (yeah, like that's going to happen), I'll do without, thank you very much
I stayed away from the HR20 until I got a great deal from D*. Now my HR20s are in a lab i've setup and my HR10-250's are still doing the bulk of the work. Once the unit is stable and OTA enabled, I'll consider moving things around again.
So, I suggest calling D* every other week or so until you get a CSR or customer retention person to give you the HR20 for free. Hopefully before it can arrive, we'll all have the upgrade that will take us out of beta testing mode...
