"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"
- Decent AV quality
- Undocumented multimedia playback
- Software-based blind search slow and won't find DVB-S2 channels
- Some functions could be user-friendlier
- Simultaneous SD and HD output not possible
