I pay for the local package? It looks like you need at least one HDTV, but the info is not clear to me. Thank You.

In the past, they've not demonstrated an interest in accommodating what you propose. This may change substantially after the analog shut-off if they're opposed to it now.

Can I use this DVR with 2 non HDTV's, but still get the digital locals & (sub-channels), if I pay for the local package?
Using two non-HD TVs wouldn't be a problem. There is the mentioned $7 fee if you don't subscribe to the HD Programming package ($10 for Essentials).
Digital locals and sub-channels could be an issue, independent of having an HDTV. To get all sub-channels, you would need to get them via an OTA antenna. HD Locals via sat would vary based on your market area (hard to identify), but USUALLY only has ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC, and a single channel for those. Paying for locals will get you Guide info for the OTA channels, and subchannels, but that also varies with market area.
