What is the difference between a DVR and an HD DVR?


A DVR is a receiver that lets you record, pause and rewind LIVE standard definition programming. An HD DVR is a much more advanced receiver. It allows you to record, pause, and rewind LIVE HD programming, plus it's compatible with the DIRECTV Whole-Home service, DIRECTV on DEMAND, and much more.
