I have been a DirecTV user for years (late 94 - early95), However my last DirecTV DVR was a HR10-250 DirecTivo. Since that time I have been using Windows Media Center with 2 H20-100s feeding Svideo into the media center and 2 ATSC tuners. Given the dropping of the HDPC-20 for the forseeable future I am ready to switcht the house to HR23s... My questions are: 1. Does the AM21 work with the newest IRDs that have been released? 2. Does the AM21 allow you to record from them at the same time you record 2 shows from DirecTV (so you would in fact be recording 3 or 4 shows at the same time)? 3. Assuming Question 2 is a NO (I have read conflicting things on the net)... If I have 2 HR2X units can I record 2 shows on Box A and watch something via MRV from Box B? Its hard to plan the logistics... what do you all do? There are times where I record 2 OTA and 2 DirecTV at the same time... just seems a nightmare to get it all laid out in my head. Thats one thing I would really miss about my Media Center.
