    If I sign up for DirecTv, will my ancient Philips HDR212 work with whatever box DirecTv brings (I am not signing up for any HDTV packages)?

    Would I have to do anything special to connect things?

    Yes it will, Right now I have my Philips series 1 TiVo hooked up to a RCA receiver via the slow data cable. Make sure if you can get a receiver that either has a serial port or a slow data port (looks like the telephone plug, but narrower). If all else, you can use a ir cable to control from the front panel.

    Dish -> Receiver -> TiVo -> TV

    The Philips HDR212 will work with any Standard Directv Receiver.
