Newbie here:

What are the major differences between the two and is it better to go with the 700 and spend the extra money.

Thanks in advance

Both units are priced the same. If you need a rf remote, then the 700 is the way to go because the 100's rf does not work as well as the 700's. No problem if IR is all you need on the 100.

The 100 has BOTH coax & optical digital audio outs, while the 700 ONLY has optical.

Correct me if i'm wrong. I know for a fact that the -100 has dual network inputs. (Not that many people can take advantage of even 1 yet). Does the 700 as well?

Extra money? If you negotiate, either one could be free. Both of mine were.

They are both listed for $299, but deals may be available.

Differences:
-100 runs cooler.
RF remote works better on -700 (internal antenna) than on -100 (external antenna).
-100 had both optical and coaxial digital audio.
-100 has second network port (I don't know if it is functional).
-100 may have a slightly larger hard drive (I haven't verified this).
-700 has newer software if you participate in CE program.
-100 made by Thomson (RCA); -700 made by Pace.

Chances are if you'reordering a HR20 fromDirecTv, you won't have a choice in what model you'll get. I know I didn't.
