My father is in a nursing home which has some kind of a custom DirecTV channel selection feed to it's rooms. All the channel numbers are different than mine and there only about 40 of them. From my understanding there are a few "receivers" which feed all the rooms in the facility. I question whether HD is an option. The rooms are fed with coax and they're connected to resident's TVs with that simple connection. They don't have receivers in each room. My father just got an HDTV and someone connected the coax to the antenna port for DirecTV. From his description, it doesn't sound like HD. Can he get a 3rd party or even a DirecTV receiver or DVR which could transmit HD? I wonder whether HD channels are even transmitted to the facility at all. Thanks in advance for the feedback.
