Satellite is digital. Digital can be SD or HD. I would guess you have SD. If so you need to have everything replaced along with a lot of new equipment. You can do it your self getting every thing you need from ebay, amazon and so-forth.
That is a lot of work and if you aren't tech savvy I would not try it on your own. You will need new tuners or DVR's and DirecTV does not sell them, there is a leasing fee that some take as a purchase price, there are a lot of them on ebay so buyer beware. You are going to be a lot better of having DirecTV take care of you. It is going to cost some money but in the long run it's could be a lot cheaper. Also if you have been with them for a few years they may do the job for free.
