You can use them, but they will not receive the new HD channels (only the H20 and HR20 will receive these). The H10 will receive the current national HD channels, but these may get moved to the new satellite (probably not soon, however). The D10 and D11 are only capable of SD reception (I don't know about the SIR-TS160).

Funny thing is, I just called dtv to ask them if the D10 and D11 would get the new HD channels, and the girl I spoke to said yes.

She probably said that because the two new sats are also designated as D10 and D11, and will carry the new hd channels.

Agreed. Plus the fact you really can't trust anything a CSR says.

The receivers D10, D11 and D12 are *SD* receivers. They don't do HD at all.

As mentioned, right now the only receivers that can get the new HD channels are the H20 and HR20 (DVR) as well as the yet unreleased H21 (replacement for the H20).
