    Just a few quick questions on Directv. Is there any special features I should look for when buying a box? Do they have boxes that support DD5.1? If so, will everything be broadcast in 5.1 or just a few special movies (like say HDTV). Is there anything I should look for when buying a system....any special brand or features that stand out over others? Finally, where is the best deal on a complete system? It seems like I've always seen them really cheap, but now that I'm looking, its like a minimum of $150 for the dish and reciever. Are there any better deals than this? Point me in the right direction if you don't mind. Thanks guys.

    Is it possible to get a DirecTV box that will allow you to have both HDTV and Tivo, or do you have to choose one or the other?

    DirecTivo with HDTV capability would be wonderful, but it isn't available. Anyway, DirecTivo is definitely something you should look at in buying a system.
