    Ok, well I've been a HT nut for a while but I am an amature when it comes to DirectTV.

    Here's what I am basically looking for. Right now I have an HDTV set, but I want to wait for some of the new Samsung, Zenith and Panasonic HDTV boxes to come out before I get one of those, so I am just looking for a basic system for two TV's. I do have a ReplayTV, so I would like a system with a low speed data port for that. What models would you guys recommend and what/where is the best deal right now.

    Secondly, may be you can tell me if this exists. When I do get the HDTV DirecTV box, I need it to have:
    1. Native display of 480p, 720p and 1080i
    2. Have a low speed data port for ReplayTV
    3. OTA capabilites for local HDTV
    Does such a box exist, or will I need to have two boxes for the mainTV, one with DirectTV HDTV and another non-HDTV box connected to the replay?

    Hope that all makes sense. Thanks so much.

    Your best bet is to see what the specs are on the new boxes. You also might want to check where the specialists hang out.
