    I went to Best Buy this morning and the sales person did not know anything about the HR20 DTV HD/DVR reciever.

    1. Can you record HD Local channels (MPEG4) format?

    2. Does it have a season pass option?

    3. is it slow channel surfing?

    4. what dish do I need with it, and can I also keep my SD tivo in another room using the same dish?

    5. Anyother differences from Tivo would be appreciated.

    You'll get more info about the HR20 in the DBS Talk Forum.

    1). It's the only HD DVR than can record MPEG4 DirecTV delivered local channels.
    It can also record your OTA HD stations.
    2). There's something like SPS, just called different and may not be as user friendly.
    3). Don't know.
    4). AT9 for DirecTV deleivered HD Locals and Yes.
    5). See the other forum.
