Sorry if this has been covered before. I tried searching for a while, but could find the answer.

I'm looking into either Direct TV or Dish. If you have their HD-DVR receiver, can you record HD pay-per-view movies, or other content on them? Is it the same for both Direct TV and Dish?

Thanks.

I ordered "War of the Worlds" on PPV last month on my HR10-250 (DirecTV) and it's still there.

Got it. Was it in HD? And I'm guessing that its taking up almost 10% of your hard drive space? (Assuming 25 hours of HD content space on th HR10-250, and the movie is over 2 hours long...).

I still have PPV-HD of EuroTrip sitting on my system...

It is going to stay there until I get a good price on the DVD...

You just missed it then... Best Buy had it last week as part of their 2 for $15 selection.
