I have been a D* subscriber almost continuously for the past 10+ years. Here in Arizona, I own a condo and I have my dish mounted on the roof per HOA guidelines.

I am moving to South Florida later this month, and the condo I am renting there has HOA-provided D* service through a company called TCI. I have a couple of questions that maybe some of you can help me out with:

1. I am an annual NFLST subscriber. Will I still be able to subscribe using the HOA-provided flavor of D*?

2. I currently have the Whole Home DVR setup with an HR-24 half full of unwatched shows in the living room and an H24 in the bedroom. Will I be able to keep my current receivers using the new condo's system, and will I be able to maintain the Whole-Home setup?

I apologize if these are newbie questions, I have just not had any experience with D* outside of the traditional "one dish for one house" kind of setup.

Thanks in advance,

it they use IP based distribution you will not get same setup, albeit most likely could preserve your programming...
I would call TCI and get all the answers from them directly or you will get bunch guesses here :)
