    I did a search but didn't find any mention of this, so please let me know if it's old news.

    I just got off the phone with DirecTV Cust Serv (so that's the source and take it for what it's worth). The rep offered me a HR20-700 for $99. I asked when the OTA tuners would be turned on and she said "the software upgrade for that would be released to everyone between now and Dec 3rd". Now technically she didn't say what year, so she's pretty safe.

    Has anyone heard any dates for the tuner's being turned on? The unit is going to be used mainly by my wife for shows rec'd OTA and therefore it doesn't make any sense for me to get it before it can receive those channels.

    They told me "October", so December seems just about right :rolleyes:

    I replied "Adios, MF!" shipped it back and promptly got a third HR10 instead, so I won't have to be holding my breath.
