Advertisements So, not sure what happened last night (and don't really care at this point), but I had been happily anticipating the return of my favorite Thursday night comedies (Earl, 30 Rock, Office) and as my DirecTV brand HD DVR switched over to NBC to start recording at 8 pm, we get a splash screen saying something to the effect "don't call us, it's not our fault, but there's no signal". This is **exactly** why I was annoyed to get "upgraded" to the D* HD DVR that doesn't have the OTA feed. If that was my only option, I would have missed the entire nights worth of shows - not sure when signal came back - I didn't care ;-) But wait, there's my trusty old, "obsolete* HR10-250 in the other room hooked up to a nice 47" flat screen Samsung (our backup setup) that is getting beautiful OTA feed. We just went in there to watch. This is why I keep my HR10-250. Having just upgraded my antenna feed to a rooftop, I can guarantee nice HD feeds for the majors. So, don't let anyone try to tell me it's obsolete or of no value. It certainly saved the day last night!
