    I've seen ads for 99 bucks for a directv/tivo box, and my vcr died so I need something for taping shows. I already have a hdtv directv box, so can I run another directv box on a seperate input? I'd use it for taping and if something decent comes on hd, I can switch over to the hd box.
    I know they're coming out with a hdtv/dvr around the corner but I bet it will be out of my price range.
    Also can the directv/tivo record ota sinals because directv hasn't added local channels in my area until at least 1st quarter '04. Right now I have a terrestial antenna to pull hd/analog locals. I also have a pvr on the pc for recording local shows only, but it would be nice to do it all,(almost), on the tv instead.
