D* for over 20 years. Installed my own . Moved and went to cable for a short time then back to D* Rnd dish 1 lbn. Purcased Phase III trip LNB and installed myself to get local chnls. Works great. What is so great about H20 and HD? From what I see in the stores and the programs available I question the extra cost . Where am I wrong.?:confused:

DirecTV hasn't been around 20 years :)

Personally I find the HDTV video quality much improved over standard definition, a difference that becomes especially visible on a large screen HDTV. If you want DirecTV's HiDef channels, then you'll need an H20 Receiver or HR10-250 DVR or HR20-700 DVR. If you don't find the difference important to you, then save the money.
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
Mobile Devices: Nomad
