I have never used a DVR before, but am ready to get into it now, just gone on for too long without one.

However, my setup gets a little complicated (at least I think so). I have both DirecTV and Dish, but I just get 1 international station through Dish for my wife. Currently I run the Dish signal to my HD DirecTV receiver and switch to the video signal when my wife wants to watch the Dish station. I want to be able to DVR any of my channels, especially the Dish network as my wife often misses shows that she wants to watch.

My only DVR option is the DirecTV HD DVR (I can't remember the model and I don't feel like looking it up).

Is it possible to retain my current setup and run the Dish's video signal to the DVR, and then be able to record the signal from the Dish reciever by selecting the source when seting up the record options? Can I record both DirectTV and Dish with one piece pf equipment?

Thanks guys, you always have the answers
