    You'll need to get a regular DirecTV receiver to use as a source for the TiVo. However, if you do go with DirecTV you should consider their DVR. You may still be able to get a TiVo based version instead of their new NDS based DVR.

    AFAIK, a SA TIVO will only record the SD channels. To record D* HD channels, you'll need the HR10-250 HD DirecTIVO. At least until their new NDS HD DVR (non-TIVO) unit is released...

    SD - Standard Definitions
    HD - High Definition

    Yes it will record all the SD channels.
