Two years ago...DirectTV seemed to cost much more and for what appeared to be not as good hardware. Things seemed to have changed... and we may switch. The whole house DVR thing is very inviting and the programming seems to be a better fit, but I have a few questions. 1) My Dish 722 can record 3 HD streams at once, if I use the built in OTA antenna. If I can get my hands on a HR24, and add a AM21, can I record 4 HD streams at once? 2) Once recorded, I can then share these recordings with the other two HD receivers I plan to purchase? At the same time, I'm watching a recording? I should be trying yo get H24's for these also? 3) If I get a SD receiver for my den, I can share the recording with it also? Any particular SD receiver I should try to get? 4) I assume there is a coaxial output from these receivers I could run to my guest room, and perhaps share a receiver if I have a RF remote? 5) The $25 Internet Connect Fee is a service that is enabled? I'm not just paying someone $25 to connect a cable I could plug in myself? 6) My Dish setup uses the Eastern Arc (61.5, 72.2, 77), because trees to my south blocked the Western Arc (110/119/129). Maybe this should of been question one, am I out of luck. Is Direct's only option in the 99-119 area? 7) With Dish, I paid a one time $39 fee and my two HD receivers would accept an external USB HD and become a DVR. That's not an option with Direct is it?
