DirecTV is downplaying the HR10-250, because if you buy their new box instead, more money every month goes to them (with none going to Tivo). But you can still buy the HR10, if you like. If you have a clean shot to South Mountain, you can and will be able to get all local nets + PBS in HD OTA.

The advantage of the DTV box is the big 4 nets from sat rather than OTA (no UPN, no WB, no PBS for now) and whatever CONUS HD channels they add later, being recordable on it. Determine your OTA situation, and what your viewing patterns are, and balance that against which PVR makes sense to you.

I am in Chandler at 12.1 miles, and I get perfect reception with a FM dipole taped to a window (plus an amp). Unless there is something reflective near you, or lots of trees, you should be OK with a Silver Sensor or equivalent, but an amp can help if not using a high-gain antenna like a 4228.
