    Got a question. I just swapped out my HR10-250 for a HR23-700 and was wondering about the HD feed on HDNEt and HBO. I got these in the 70s on my Tivo, now I see they are mirrored at various places. Are the feeds at 501, and 3xx MPEG 4? Just wondering if I can save space by recording from these vs. the channels in the 70s.

    yes, they are MPEG-4. And the ones in the 70s will be going away very soon anyway, so you need to record from the others particularly if you have any series links, they need to be changed..
