I've been following the forum for a while now, and as I approach the time to buy my first RPTV set (hopefully tonight) i'm realizing i haven't spent enough time learning what the difference between the often mentioned receivers are.


It seems as though there are only a handful of receivers to chose from these days. I see mention of a toshiba, sony, the new zenith mostly. Currently i'm a directTV subscriber with ultimateTV service which i like a lot. Since i don't want to lose recording functionality for normal television viewing i plan to keep this receiver for now (sony ultimate tv unit). But i'll need an HD receiver of some kind as well.


Can someone give a somewhat brief overview of what receivers are out there and what their differences are? Do they all receive OTA programming? Do some only receive Dish network programming while others receive DirectTV network programming?


Appreciate any suggestions on what you might do in my situation.. Thanks much,


Gerald
