I was told that if my DLP TV had a built in HD tuner, that I dont need a HD receiver or HD DVR to watch HD programming on the DLP. Is this correct? If the signal coming in from the satellite is in HD, can I still watch it in HD with say, an R15 DVR?

Thanks
Bill

If you ONLY want HD from an OTA antenna you will need an HD tuner built-in the TV or a HD set-top box; not both.

If you want HD from DirecTV you will need their HD receiver; which comes with an HD OTA tuner.

If you are in an area that has MPEG4 HD then you will need the current H20; which also comes with an HD OTA tuner.

If you plan on a set-top box or DBS receiver, you can get more display for the money IMHO without the HD tuner being built-in; I actually prefer my HD display NOT to have it built-in. or you can get the same size cheaper.

I hope this makes since and helps out.

Does the HD DVR come with an HD OTA tuner? Will this allow me to get DTV HD channels and my local HD proframming all on the DVR?
