I am thinking of getting an HR-20 box. Besides DirecTV, I also subscribe to Surewest Digital TV (DTV). I am wondering it is possible to hook DTV to HR-20 box and control channels, recording time, etc.

Thank you in advance for your help.

I just noticed that Surewest offers its own Tivo PVR as seen at personal.surewest.com/digital_tv/tivo/

I hope HR-20 can also handle this.

Welcome. No. The HR20 can only receive ATSC(SD and HD) OTA stations. There are not any other inputs other than the sat inputs
