    I am getting sick of my cable company and I am looking for an alternative. Will the HD Tivos work with DirectTV or do I need to use their DVR?

    The Series 3 and TiVo HD will work only with cable and OTA (dozens of posts on that subject).

    Any other provider essentially needs their DVR for HD, including DirecTV.

    You could buy a used HR10-250 HD DirecTV/Tivo DVR, but those can't record DirecTV's new MPEG4 HD channels.
