TechRadar's verdict

"The 7020 represents excellent value for a hi-def receiver. PVR upgradability, blind search (albeit software-implemented, and thus slow), a pay-TV upgrade path and largely undocumented multimedia playback give you lots to get your teeth into. It's a pity that some silly bugs compromise what's otherwise an excellent product. We hope there's a firmware update before too long– the most recent one was December 2008"
For
  • Decent AV quality
  • PVR-upgradable
  • Undocumented multimedia playback
Against

  • Some functions could be user-friendlier
