I just picked up a free DirectTV receiver/HD DVR with over-the-air receiver function as well.

I have no interest in activating any satellite service. Not DirecTV or anything else. But I do want to use this thing as a broadcast HD receiver and be able to use the HD-DVR function.

Does anyone here know if this is possible, or is this going to REQUIRE me to get service from DirecTV if I want to use those features?

Please email your response directly to me at as I don't come around to AVS very much anymore.
