    I dont see any of those on the list of receivers that use MPG data which has been shut down so they all should still be usable. They will NOT be able to receive HD and you may have issues getting them activated now

    All generations, all models of DirecTV TiVos are digital, not analog. I'd assume you were going for "standard definition", but then you list the HDVR2.

    One additional note, all MPEG2 DirecTV receivers which is all SD receivers and the early HD receivers that are now SD only will be obsolete sometime in 2019 when DirecTV shuts down MPEG2 broadcasts. With that in mind I would probably just recycle your receivers as they have a remaining life of less than a year

    Heh, yeah, that’s a bit confusing; but the “H,” in this case. represented “Hughes” ... and it is a SD-only model.

    Ah yeah, I was thinking of the HR10-250. I actually have both... long since retired.
