    hr20 submodel

    Is there any difference between the hr20-100 and the hr20-700 series? DTV just installed a 100 for me and if there is a benefit of the 700 then I'll call and complain but if not then I'll let it go.

    Differences are only aesthetic. One's black and one's white. Number of usb ports, position of satellite in connections, and interior vs. external rf antenna are about the only ones I can think of.

    The -xxx after the model number on DirecTV receivers is a reference to the manufacturer. The HR20-100 is actually the latest model, and is made by Thomson or RCA. It comes as either a HR20-100S, which is silver like the HR20-700, or as a HR20-100B, which is black. From what I have read, the black units are very limited distribution, and when they are gone, all future units will be silver.

    Along those same lines, how do you tell how big the internal HD is on the HR-20?

    [Edit: It appears from the DTV forums that the -100 submodel has a 320GB and the -700 submodel has a 300GB drive.
    Here is where I found some info: http://forums.directv.com/pe/action/...stID=10273602]

    All about the HR20-100. Well, almost all. I don't see that it mentions that the -100 has a coaxial audio output in addition to the optical.
