    I live in NJ and am getting all of my locals in HD through D* along with the HD package. I have an HR20. Am I getting them in MPEG 2 or 4?

    If you HD locals are in the 80's they are MPEG2. If they are not in the 80's they are MPEG4.

    In NY, the HD channels on 2,4, 5 and 7 are MPEG4.

    The NY HD MPEG4 locals are 2 WCBS, 4 WNBC, 5 WNYW, 7 WABC.

    If when you view all channels, you see two sets of channels 2, 4, 5 & 7, and the list above is there, then you have MPEG4 HD. The other set would be 2 NY2, 4 NY4, 5 NY5, and 7 NY7, which are SD.

    Also, you'd need the AT9 or AU9 dish to get the 99/103 sats, along with a Ka band receiver.

    Yes, as an example, 2 NY2 is CBS SD with MPEG2, 2 WCBS is CBS HD with MPEG4, and 80 CBSE is CBS HD with MPEG2.

    With HR20, best to use 2 WCBS for HD recordings. It's MPEG4 and uses less space. 2 NY2 for SD recordings.
