the S has 2 hdmi inputs while the R only has 1 hdmi (you might not need it now, but you'll be crying for both of them in the future)

the s has a different color wheel thats suppose to make the picture smoother....but i like the smoothness of the R better.

s is A LOT BRIGHTER. r is not.

service menu on both is (with tv off) Mute 182 Power
