I am thinking about upgrading my DISH equipment. Currently I have 2 2700 receivers, and DISH 500, dish. What incentives is E* running now? I'd like to move on up to a PVR type, and would if necessary give up one of the receivers I have. If the DISH PVRs are out of my price range, I'd get a Tivo. I was under the impression that a standalone Tivo would work but wouldn't have all the bells and whistles. That is, if I pressed record it'd record what ever was being fed to it, but wouldn't be able to change the channel of the receiver, but I saw a post here tonite that sort of contradicted that. So I ask, if I hook a Tivo up to a DISH 2700, would I be able to set it to record shows, as opposed to doing it manually?
