I just purchased a new TV (Samsung UN55B8000) and plan to upgrade my DirecTV service to HD to take advantage of it. I also have a smaller 24 inch LCD in my bedroom currently hooked up to my old R10 - I was planning to just keep the R10 (I love my Tivo!) and switch the living room box over to an HR22, however the customer service rep I spoke to mentioned I could save some money by simply purchasing an HD receiver (not the HD DVR). He says by doing this, DirecTV will simply "upgrade" my existing R22 into an HD capable receiver. To me, this sounds pretty bogus; I cannot find anything to back this claim up. Has anyone had this done to their receiver before? Based on what I've read through this forum, the R22 is essentially an HR22 with HD disabled, so I guess it's not a far stretch. The HR22 and R22 even look identical as far as I can tell. Anyone have an answer for this?
