    I have 2 HD DVRs (HR20-700 and HR20-100), both with eSata external boxes.

    These receivers are showing their age. I'd like to upgrade. I still have the old-style, 2 cables to each DVR, setup with OTA capability (no SWM or such- just the lnb on the dish with 4 cables , 2 to each TV).

    I'd like to keep OTA, and get 2 new receivers, each with 1 TB minimum of storage. The only thing I feel I'm missing right now is that I run into the limit of recording 2 shows at a time (would like 3 on my main receiver only). I don't need any kind of interface between the 2 receivers.

    What are my my upgrade choices (ones I could be sure of getting from Directv)?

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    hr-34 can records 5 shows at once and has a 1tb hd and is $399 and i and then a new hr21-24 receiver (can't guarantee a model number) plus 2 am-21 off-air tuners that plug into the usb port of the device and you will be upgraded to swm. and you will need an extremal hdd for the 2nd unit if you want 1tb on both as the max hd sideinside is 500 gb.
