First and foremost: Does anyone know of any special offers from DirecTV offering a discount on upgrading to the HD DVR? I'm not looking for a free upgrade but something in the $150-$200 range would be nice (excluding rebates).
Second - I only want HD in my living room (as it is my only HDTV). The TV in my bedroom is a few years old and standard definition. Will I still be able to use my current R15-500 with the 5LNB dish? I have no desire to upgrade that set to an HD display for at least another year or two.
Third - While browsing DirecTV's programming packages on their website, there seems to be a lack of information about what exactly is included for the $9.99 HD fee. Are there HD package tiers or just one all-inclusive option. Also, I am currently a "Total Choice Premier" subscriber, are HBO and Showtime the only premium channels available in HD on DirectTV? Furthermore, would those be included in my HD package?
