I'm hanging onto my HR10-250 tivo/hd dvr because I like how fast it changes the channel and the dual channel buffer. I do have HR21 and it has it's benefits as well.

My question is, I notice the quality of the tv on the HR10-250 is like standard def, even though it's plugged into a 1080i HD 32" LCD tv. Do I need those B band connectors that are hanging off my HR20 unit, as I notice I can't even get some HD channels on the HR10-250 unit.

it's been a long time since I thought about it, but just had the guy come over who replaced my dish and I forgot to ask him.

thanks!

The HR10 250 will not be able to see a majority of the HD channels that have been launched in the last year or 2 or 3 or so the connectors will not make a difference time to put that thing in the museum.

Are there even any channels left in MPEG2? Most (if not all) of the HD programming has moved to MPEG4 which the HR10-250 can't receive.

Sorry to tell you this, but it looks like SD because it is SD. The HR10-250 is no longer a HD DVR, unless you are getting channels via OTA antenna.

HR21
HR22 w/ AM21

I hope you are a very patient person. It may be a while.

You are aware that all the HR2x series DVR now have dual-live buffers (it's called DoublePlay) and the new HR24 is supposedly pretty fast.

The HR24 is very fast, but still lags significantly when changing channels. Everything else about it is blazing, though.
