All native mode does is change the format that the HR20 outputs to the "native" resolution of that channel. You won't experience any loss of quality turning it off unless you use the switch the output format to one that is less than the "native" resolution of that channel (ie. watching a 720p program in 480i).
That is not necessarly accurate, it depends on the scaler and deinterlacer in your display systems, I have seen deinterlacing artifacts that I did not like in the 480i content when turned native off in the hr20 and set it to 720p. My display deinterlacers and scalers appear to be better that what the hr20 has, but that is going to depend on your systems if the HR20 has better scalers than your display you may want turn off native mode. Additionally one of my displays has a dynamic scaler that automatically adjusts 480i wide screen content to fit the 16:9 format, if the hr20 is set to a fixed resolution I would have to use the format buttons to zoom or crop.
