Hi! Before the Olympics I moved over to Comcast since I had no access to any OTA HD channels where I live and I wanted to experience HD. I gave up one old D* receiver and got a pretty sweet deal from Comcast that will last me until June (when supposedly now Hartford is going to get local channels). I have one HD ready TV and the other two are non hd tv that are have a Series 1 and Series 2 lifetime Tivo connected. However, the issue with going back to D* depends on 1) locals in HD and 2) being able to record HD and I believe there is still no ETA for the HD DVR. So what are my options? The current HD DVR from D* is MPG 2 and the locals are going to be broadcasted in MPG4 so that will do me no good if I made the switch now and go the HD DVR? Is the only option to watch HD and record non-HD until D* launches the DVR?
