This is my First post and I just wanted to say what a great site this is! So much enjoyable Info..

Heres my Question.
I want to buy a Tivo or a DirecTivo. If i were to go to the store and pick one, would it be compatible with My "Emulated H Card"?

If I chose to get just a Tivo will it work with My Current Sattelite Feed, Record and all the the other features??

What are some of the Models to look for that fit my need?
Any other info would be very Helpful as I am new to all this Tivo..

Thanks for the Help

I think that you would be better off with a stand alone TiVO. That way you can reboot IRD aggressively if necessary (don't want to do that to TiVO...) and avoid the phone connect etc. that the DirectTivo has (OK to call TiVO, not OK to call DTV, of course you can avoid phone line altogether with net connect but that a whole other complication). Just my 2 cents, I'm new here and impressed by the depth of knowledge here so perhaps someone can give you more complete advice.
