    i just bought a pioneer elite pro-520HD tv and need an HD reciever. I was thinking about the hughes e86 but read somewhere that when i am recording to a vcr i can have the reciever in HD mode because it can only output one signal at a time. meaning it can output 1080i but not 1080i and 480i at the same time. Is there a reciever that can do this. Also it say that it converts all signal to 1080i hows the converted picture and would i be better off using the line-doubler on my elite.

    thanks

    You are correct that the E86 outputs either HD or SD but not both at the same time. I think the Samsung OTA only receiver will. There's a lot of info on HD receivers at AVS Forum.
    I use my E86 for watching live TV and anything I record goes to the DirecTivo.
