I'd use the H20, though its not MRV compatible. The H10 is a Tivo, no MPEG4 support, and if your system is SWM, I don't believe it would work at all. But what H20 is it? One was recalled, the -600 I believe.

No, the HR10-250 is a Tivo, but the H10 is an older HD Receiver. It can receive off-air HD channels but can no longer receive any DirecTV satellite HD channels. And both the HR10-250 and H10 are not SWM compatible.
HD DVRs: HR34-700; HR24-500; (2) HR20-700 + WD eSATA 1TB drive/Antec MX1 case; HR21-700; HR21-200 w/AM21
Receivers: H25-500 HD Receiver; H21-100 HD Receiver

It's an H20-100. Thanks for the replies.
