Hi all, I just called Directv on another matter and asked about buying an HD Tivo. The rep on the phone in their retention department (who sounded knowledgeable and put me on hold several times) claims that as of tomorrow, they will be shutting off MPEG2 broadcasts of local channels in Los Angeles and therefore local channel would not work on the HD Tivo. Does anyone else have knowledge of this or if this is beign read tomorrow, can you confirm this has happened? Every time I call DIrectv I get someone else who has a different story. Just last week when I was going to purchase the HD Tivo at Best Buy they assured me that in Los Angeles they would be broadcasting in MPEG2 locally for years to come. If this is true, would you say I am better off getting an OTA antenna (I am 35 miles from most stations this way) or better to get an MPEG4 REceiver only and hook it up to my garden variety DTV Tivo (and yes I know I could not record in HD). Just wondering igf I am forced to go this route if the OTA antenna works seemlessly with DirectTV HD Tivo. THanks for any and all help. These guys at Directv really know how to aggravate their customers to no end.
