MPEG 4 local only, or will all equipment die?

I was ready to call a local installer to get D* but now that D* will start broadcasting the local channels for Sacramento, CA in high-definition should I hold off until the MPEG-4 compatible receivers are available? This is especially true since I may also get Jadeworld service for my stepfather who's fluent in both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese.

But if you want an MPEG-4 DVR, you will need to wait a few months for the HR20
DIRECTV employee since April 2008.

If you cannot get your locals via antenna, the HR10-250 is probably of limited value to you since in general much of what is in HD that people want is from their local channels/networks.
