I've done some searching, but haven't found the exact answer I'm looking for, and frankly I don't completely trust what the D* CSR's tell me. Here's my situation -- I'm a 6-year + D* subscriber who won't leave because of Sunday Ticket, no matter what cable offers me. I'm going to be an HD set sometime this year. Since I'm completely addicted to TiVo, I'd always been planning on buying an HR10-250. Because I'm in the New York area, it's my understanding I can get my locals (well at least ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox) over satellite, as long as I have a triple-LNB dish, and that's unlikely to be affected by the MPEG-4 upgrade. My question is this -- D* CSRs tell me they'll be adding lots more HD programming in the future. But won't all those new national networks be in MPEG-4? If so, it seems silly to buy an HR10-250 now. Should I wait until the D* HD PVR comes out at some point this year? Your input is much appreciated. Thanks!
