It would seem that an integrated Dish PVR like the DirecTV would be OK for HDTV. I know a very large hard disk would be necessary. This would atleast be a closed system and it would seem that this might get around copyright issues somewhat
It is not that different then DirecTIVO which stores original mpeg2.
At the last Charlie Chat, Charlie Ergen, (The CEO for those who don't know E*) said they were working on something for next year. It will be interesting to see how the MPAA reacts to this, but since it is almost certaily going to be a closed system with a proprietary disk operating system and encryption that is already present in the sat bitstream it should be less onerous to them than a HD VCR I would think. Whot wquld be really cool is if they could set it up to record the OTA stuff as well.
