will there be a new reciever released for 1080p content? every hr21 I've seen only has up to 1080i

what im hearing is that if you have a hr21 or a h23 receiver you can get the 1080p broadcasts. it will attomatically switch to the highest format on the screen your receiver is set to a native setup. if anyone has a question on how to do that just email me.

i have been installing it for about 2 months. its looks just like the h21 and it doesn't need a bbc converter. do you have directv. if not i can help you get it installed. also it has a Ethernet port on the back so u can stream you media content and use the on demand service

we've been with directv for over 10 years...problem is directv customer service can NEVER provide the latest hardware...it's a total crap shoot so usually we have to wait for the newest hd dvr to hit retail shelves at circuit city or best buy....or pay retail ++++ through USSatelite or another web based seller...the 1080p hd dvr is $1000+ on the web & is not available VIA direcTV directly
