    It looks like your DVR is defective. Call DirecTV to request a replacement Receiver/DVR. It's free if you have their Equipment Protection Plan, or within 90-days of installation. Otherwise ~$20 for shipping. Or ~$50 to have a tech come replace it for you.

    Since you state that your TV has HDMI connections it should be an HD TV.
    Why not call and see what they will do for you for an upgrade to HD service.
    You will probably be surprised at how little they will charge you to come out and change your dish and your receiver to HD.

    If you do not want to do that I would call them for a replacement receiver. The replacement would probably be an R-16.

    You couldnt pay me to use an SD device with any decent HDTV...2 year commitment or not. It ruins the whole viewing experience.

    I do not have any channels in my favorite list that is not HD. It took about 2 days to cut the SD channels out. Your eyes will thank you for switching.
