My question concerning HR10-250’s is I’m currently using a dual LNB round dish with an SD DirecTV/Tivo PVR with a 120 MB hard drive. I’ve just ordered a Plasma HD 46” TV. What I think I want to do is buy a used DR10-250 and a new SL 5PIG-Z dish until DirecTV comes out with the new TiVo box at the end of 2009. My thinking is that since my current box only has S-Video, by going to the HR10-250 I will gain HDMI to the TV. This should, in my thinking make the SD picture better and integrate Off Air HD signals from the locals. I am aware of the lack of MPG4 reception of the unit and will probably not pay the extra for Direct’s HD service and will just receive SD via the satellite like I do now. So what do you guys think? Is this worth doing? I’ve tried DirecTV box without TiVo and do not think I want to go that route. I live in a rural area and satellite is my only option.
