    Ok hopefully somebody can help me out here.

    I currently have DirectTV with the UltimateTV (UTV) add-on. I use UTV A LOT and I think it's one of my best investments. But now the problem is that I want to get a High Definition receiver so I can view shows in HD as well. I don't care if I'm not able to record those shows in HD format. That's fine with me. I just want to have the ability to use UTV functions as well as view in HD format (not necessarily at the same time). Hopefully I'm making sense.

    Anyhow, Is there a receiver out there which has both HD and UTV capabilities built in to it? If not, would I need to have 2 different receivers (1 HD and 1 UTV)? And how would I connect those? Would I only be able to have 1 on at a time? Or would I connect them together like I normally would a VCR for example?

    Thanks a lot for the help!

    How about the PVR section?
