Direct TV HD receivers take the signal from your satellite dish, decodes the signal and sends the signal to your HD TV. The HD receivers come in two varieties, A standard HD receiver and a HD DVR.
The DVR allows you to record an entire season of your favorite movies or TV series by setting it up just one time. When you place an order, be sure to get the HD DVR. There's an addition monthly charge for the DVR service, but it provides TV on your schedule, when you're ready to sit down and enjoy it!
The DVR version of the Direct TV HD Receiver allows you to get up to 1080p resolution, which is the highest HD quality available. Record 400 hours of standard definition programming, or 100 hours of high definition programming. Record programs up to 14 days in advance, then when the program is recorded, it shows up automatically in your on-screen program list for you to enjoy. You need the HD Access package (which is an additional monthly cost) to get HD programming.
The HD receiver gives you up to 1080i high definition quality! It doesn't give you the 1080p resolution like the HD DVR, but if you don't intend to record your favorite programs or want to use this in conjunction with a HD DVR in another room, it's a great way to go.
I compare the picture quality of HD to looking out your kitchen window. It's very clear and vivid. Think of It like having your own mini movie theater right in your living room! You need the HD access package to get a HD picture.

Allows you to get your local off-air HD channels if not available through your satellite dish. Your local channels are integrated into your on-screen program guide of the Direct TV HD Receiver.

Direct TV is the first content provider to even offer 3D programming!
You need either a standard HD or HD DVR receiver, a 3D HDTV and the HD Access package to get 3D content.
Who Makes 3D TVs?
