HD TIVO HR10-250 questions directed at someone with answers
To cut to the chase, I have a HD TIVO coming later this week, and would like some questions answered by anyone who can answer them.
1. Is the 30 hour amount on best, or worse, or does it even matter when it is HD?
2. Is the picture better ( on a 100 inch projector) with the TIVO turned off, and if so, is there a bypass on the unit?
3. Currently I have a first generation RCA HD receiver, and an SA TIVO. The RCA can have the HD part turned on or off (when on the TIVO won't work accept on antenna). Can the HD TIVO have the HD turned off, and allow some RCA jacks to go to the SA TIVO, so I can still use it for my season passes that are already on there, as well as other things. If so, is there a direct connection to do channel changing on the SA TIVO, or what would be the best way to handle this?
4. Although I love every new electronic thing that comes along, it is not where my talents lie. Can I set it up by myself by simply transfering the same connections from my old receiver, or will there be more to it than that?
5. Finally, I am currently still a Pegasus customer in the process of changing over, and that could happen any time between today and the end of August. I had read that only actual Directv customers can use this HD TIVO, is that true?
Thanks to anyone with answers to any of my questions. I think that the HR10-250, at 999.99, is pretty much a bargain. 2 HD receivers, HD TIVO, antenna connection, and only five dollars a month more on your directv bill for all the TIVO services. If bought separate 2 decent HD receivers would be1200, and an SA TIVO 400, if you could get one. I only mention this because some people think that in a few months you could get this machine for 300-400 dollars.
