Don't forget to hook those DVR's up to your home network so you can use DirecTV on Demand, DirecTV2PC and Media Share, along with any other new features that D* might have coming down the road.

And don't forget if you want ATSC OTA support to go to the D* web site and order the AM21 for $50 to add two ATSC tuners to your HR22.

Welcome to the D*, enjoy.

What does that mean?

Glad to hear you like Direct, I just switched from comcast about 2 months ago, and I will NEVER go back :)

What's the best way to do this without having to buy D* expensive wireless card?

the powerline adapters are a bit cheaper, the cheapest way would be if you can run an ethernet cable from your router if its close enough to the receiver

I made the switch today as well and LOVE IT!!! As aurora said, the powerlines are a great option, although, Direct offers them for $25 if your router is far away from your receiver. This is much cheaper than the $80+ they charge at circuit city or best buy.

Dont count on it, the fact that the R22 looks like your Hr22 is only so old 2nd dish markets can get their locals via HD feeds w/o using 2 dishes. D* will still want you to get a HRxx or Hxx if you want a 2nd HD box.
