I was wondering if it's possible to record on a DVR unit from an existing sat reciever? I already have a DirectTv/Tivo setup in one room which is great and I'd like to use my old sat reciver in another room. Can I just go out and buy a DVR unit, hook it up to the old sat reciever?

Thank You

Have a Replay 5040 connected to both a sd hughes D* and a jvc 6023(6000u) E* can only record downrezzed hd but yes... you can, or buy a standalone tivo for it. Another consideration if you do not want a guide is a DVD recorder such as a panasonic with a hard drive in it.
Keep it in the family. Get a standalone tivo. Works great with sat receiver.
You would be better off buying another D*Tivo combo unit to replace your extra standard receiver. If you add an SATivo it will cost you $149 or more plus you will have to pay either an additional $12.95/mo or $299 lifetime for full Tivo subscription, if you purchase a D*Tivo combo to replace your current 2nd receiver it will cost you $ 99 or less plus possibly a new multi-switch if needed for about $40 but no additional Tivo subscription needed, just the normal $4.99/mo 2nd receiver mirror fee. Plus the combo units record directly off of the satellite bit stream, which means better pq in most cases then that SA would provide.
