Need some advice - have had dtv since 2000 - big fan.
have had Hitachi hd w/ internal hd tuner since 2002.
My HD has been OTA and recorded through JVC DVHS.
I am now considering DTV HDPVR - especially to record 2 HD programs at once or at least watch one while recording another.
While I am still not convinced DTV has enough HD content I am ready to move to HD if it makes sense - my question: am I better off waiting 6 to 12 months for the next version of an DTV HDPVR? any insights would be welcome.

Check some of the other forums, HDTV, etc. Lots of HD supposed to be coming via Directv when new satellites fire up in early '05.

Thanks Iaen I have wandered over there especially to the DTV forum at HDVD.
I have mostly been waiting for more or better HD programming. But now I see that 4 of the 6 shows I watch all week are going to be opposite one another - Las Vegas v 24 & alias v West Wing. Since I much prefer to watch them in HD and my JVC- DVHS won't allow me to record one HD program while watching another it looks like a HDPVR is the answer.

So I was trolling to see if anyone had heard whether the DTV - Hughes HD-10-250 HD PVR was due for an upgrade in 05. Since it goes for around $1K I want to be careful. Maybe the smart thing is to wait until the january 05 Consumer Electronics event and see if they make any announcements - but the above shows start early next month or at least 24 and alias do.
