    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...
