H10 replacement?

6 year old DVR, Directv has gone to own dvr but with TIVO software, (I'm told), If I go with DirectV, I am told I must buy HD service also...Question if I go to Best Buy and pay $150 can I use with DirctV and not buy HD fees, ( old TV)

i understand that without some "free hd" promo, dtv charges for hd channels if you have any hd box that has a lease.

you could ask dtv for an sd-dvr, or try to find someone online selling an owned sd/hd dvr, but be careful - a lot of people advertise online that a dvr is owned when they're not.

Most likely the retail stores only have Tivo Premiere or Premiere 4/4XL and these will not work with satellite/DirecTV.
