Need to verify what dish is on the complex, unless it is the 5LNB then it does not matter if they get a HR20 or not, they cannot recieve the new channels
Are there existing channels that are HD that an older dish will receive?
My understanding is that an upgrade is coming, but my search of Directv listings shows many current HD options. Are these widely available, or are they limited to upgraded dishes?
I am locked into the apartment complex and I am not going to fight with anyone to upgrade the dish. But I do need to buy a new tv. If there is a good chance I will receive no HD channels from Qwest, that will help determine my tv options. However if I can a lesser version of HD tv and miss out on some of the newer channels, then I will probably go for an HD tv and enjoy the improvement over my current tv.
Also if I have a good chance of receiving a lesser version of HD for Sunday ticket games, I will probably invest in an HR20. Obviously if none of the content I will receive will be HD then I will probably go for a non-dish dvr.
I do know I will probably have to contact the Qwest people but I want to do my research before I ask questions.
Thanks for all the help so far...
