I finally saw Lot8's yesterday on the weather channel. Looks like the HR24-200 generates SD overlay graphics up until the last slide when they show the new HD format of the west coast animated radar. I'm not sure if non DVR's generate Lot8's or not. I didn't even know DirecTV did this, never saw it before. I thought they showed the national feed like Comcast shows on the HD version of weather channel.

They've been doing it since 2008 in addition to things like a severe weather alert and tone:

At first it was only available on the SD feed, but eventually the HD feed got it too. It's available on every D, R, H and HR series receiver.
