The only way I think you'd be able to record 2 HD networks from DISH would be to record the CBS feed of the bird and the others off the air. See the info below for O&O markets and feed availability. I seem to recall that you're in the Houston market. Dish wouldn't seem to offer you much. You might consider getting an OTA HD-PVR as a short term solution. A quick google indicates that Houston is #11 DMA in the market. That probably means that LiL HD will be available from DirecTV shortly.

QUALIFICATION METHOD #1
You must live in one of the 17 market areas served by stations owned and operated by the CBS corporation. Owned and operated stations are commonly referred to as O&O stations. (O&O stations serve only 35% of the country. Hence, most areas in the country are served by stations which carry CBS programming, but are owned by independent companies. These are known as affiliates.)

The 17 markets served by CBS O&O stations are: Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, Marquette, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and Green Bay.
