DirecTV Inc Informative - Hi-Def DVR - Satellite service
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA -- If you order DirectTv with a High-Def DVR, BEWARE.
DirectTv will not tell you this, but you will not be able to receive your local stations in Hi-Def, only standard def. You can get Hi-Def locals only if you do not get the DVR reciever box.
There is an off-air antenna that may allow you to get Hi Def local stations with the Hi-Def DVR, but the service is spotty and not guaranteed by Direct Tv. We get most stations, but not NBC, and Direct Tv has thrown in the towel as to making it work. Looking into Comcast.
