Got some side questions.... Does this system have the ability to record 
HDTV? Does this system 'autoskip' commercials? This sounds like a great 
alternative to the $800 dvr/hdtv receivers which seems to now come with 
a $5 per month 'dvr fee'? Where does the $5 go? Why does it exist? Is 
this a way to appease the skipping of commercials or just another way to 
make money for the use of a signal you're already paying for? Anyway, 
I'm feeling like I'm being taken for a ride... HDTV is the future... why 
can they charge more for HDTV service at all? It is a federal 
'standard'. All broadcast some day will be in HDTV. Sorry... an off 
topic rant... but I'm looking for a cure to the dvr issue at the moment.

Thanks for any help.
