And what setting on the TV itself? It's not an HD TV but it has settings for widescreen and regular. And also has 16:9 and 4:3 ratios.

The reason I ask, is that I need a new DVR box, my R15-500 blew out (lost a bunch of recorded shows - sigh). If I need a new receiver thought I might as well get an HD DVR and maybe I can afford a new HD TV later this year.

I believe the specs for their current HD DVR unit also shows S-Video out.

And no, I do not currently have HD programming. I figure to get an HD DVR *NOW* and get the actual HD television sometime later.

If you do that you will still have to subscribe to HD service and pay the $10/month fee. You can get the fee credited back if you decide to use AutoPay to pay your bill.

But, what if his local channels are in MPG 4? Then he would need a HD DVR to have any DVR service.
