I want stop receiving cable and satellite. I plan to put up an antenna. What DVR or equipment do I need to receive analog transmission now, and digital transmission on Feb 19 so that I can record programming when not home?
I am very confused from reading online and don't want to buy unnecessary items or wrong items.
I have two flat screens: one is 1080p Sony with HD, the other is 1080 (I think) but no HD that we bought last year.
Rammitinski, Echostar is a Satellite provider. Are you saying their DVR will work without subscribing to satellite programming?
Actually Echostar is the parent company of Dish Network - who is a satellite provider. The TR-50 which Rammitinski mentioned will, in fact, be an OTA-only affair. Unfortunately it's still a bit unclear about when it's going to arrive - I think the current working theory is late November/early December timeframe, but that's still just a reasonably educated guess. Something could still go sideways, leaving you waiting for the TR-50 even longer - there's currently no way to know for sure.
