Advertisements I have DirecTV and am unable to get a DirecTV DVR (it's complicated). I miss being able to record TV shows. I'm hoping someone can answer a few questions for me: 1. I have an older TiVo, but I was told that it would not work with DirecTV. Is that true? 2. Is it possible to record some other way? For example, could I buy a standalone DVR and hook it up to the TV or would it cause problems with the DirecTV box? 3. Will I lose the ability to record in HD if I hook up a standalone DVR? I have very basic knowledge of electronics, so I would appreciate if you could answer in layman's terms (in other words, talk to me as if I am a child!). Thanks!
