We are in the (very) early stages of building a new home in, literally, the middle of nowhere--Pahrump, NV. The area we will build in has no cable tv service and we cannot get any HD signals from Las Vegas due to a mountain range which is inconsiderately blocking their path. I currently own an HR10-250 and get all of the HD Las Vegas locals off the air and SD locals from the satellite. When we move, we will be eligible, acccording to D* website, to receive Distant HD, but will continue to receive Las Vegas SD locals off the satellite. When the house is framed in, we are going to try to get the new larger dish installed before the stucco is applied. This is so when all signals are Mpeg4 we won't have to rip off any stucco to attach the support mast. My question (finally) is: When we start receiving distant HD, most likely from L.A., will we still be getting the Mpeg 2 signals that I can record using my HR10-250?
