    Well to go along with my other complaints about the HR20 here is another one... Does anyone notice that the picture quality of HD is worse on the HR20 then on the Tivo? SD stuff looks better but HD looks worse.

    Nope never noticed that. I think the HR20 looks excellent and at least as good as the HR10 picture (remember most HR20 is MPEG4 so perhaps that's making a difference)

    I watched Star Wars Ep 2 on HBO HD this past weekend on my just-installed HR20 and the PQ (as viewed on my Panny 50PX50U) looked pretty good to me; not saying that it looked better than watching it via my HR10 (as I remembered it from watching it in the past) but it definitely held its own, to say the least.

    I find the picture quality on both my 20s to be superior to both of my 10s. Also the OTA tuners are superior.

    I agree with others - PQ on the HR20 (and HR21) is at least as good as the HR10 if not slightly better (for those channels both get.) If you are seeing a difference, try swapping output cables.

    I really dislike the HR20 but I do not see a picture quality difference. My lastest issue with the HR20 is its lack of ability to sort via favorite channels. You should look for other solutions.

    Sort by Favorite Channels?
    Can you explain that a bit?

    I agree with the others. PQ for both HD & SD on the HR20 is as good, if not better than the HR10.

    AKA "Full of crap!" :D

    Sure the HR20 has/had some bugs. As the Hr10-250 does form all the complaints here as well, but PQ? HD looks the same to me via SAT. OTA? I can't ell but the signal strength is higher on the H20. SD, no question the HR20 looks better.

    All this guy wants to do is bash the HR20. No t's not perfect at times, but the HR10 is no either! :mad:

    This guy is a TOOL!

    I am not. It's just a joke now with him and what this board has turned into. Yes I have been a bit upset with this crap going on as well and it's showed lately in my posts. But man it getting to be a joke.

    To go along with other complaints now it completely stopped working. Did record shows but could not get them to play.

    gio1269 - Yes I will open a new thread on this.

    The guy leased an HR20 and is unhappy about it. If he posts his feelings over at DBStalk he'll get lambasted.

    If you don't like "this board" anymore, what's keeping you here? Why get upset over somebodies dislike of the HR20 ...do you have a financial stake in it? Are you related to one of the unit's designers?

    Lighten up.
