I'd recommend a PVR, but if you aren't interested, there are differences between the standard receivers of RCA, Samsung, Hughes, etc. You need to determine what your requirements are. Do you want component video? Do you want Dolby Digital output? Make sure your receiver has everything you want when you first get it. They are much more expensive once you are a subscriber.
I have had good luck with RCA, but others prefer Hughes.

I like the hughes standard remote because of simplicity, especially for older customers. And the extended warranty on the G series is a plus.
I priced a new hughes DVR at circuit city today at 249. Your local dealer may not want to sell it that low unless you're a new customer.
Good luck .

If a PVR isn't your cup of tea, then Hughes recv GAEBOA (Make sure it has an 'A" on the end. 'A' means advanced program guide which translates into three days worth of guide data and a picture in guide that stays on the channel you are watching while you check out other shows. The GAEBO is a nice recv too, but only carries about 2-4 hours of guide data and won't keep the picture in guide when you check out future shows.
