A DirecTV HD DVR receiver allows DirecTV subscribers to combine high-definition technology with digital video recording capabilities in a single unit. In addition, the DVR operates throughout your home, so you can record in one room, but watch in another.
The receiver allows you to record up to 400 hours of HD television programming.
With the "Plus" service, the HD DVR receiver can access thousands of TV shows and movies at any time.
With this receiver, you can set up program recording remotely using a mobile device, such as an iPhone or iPad. In addition, you can stream the recorded shows to your iPad.
If you forget to set a recording, you can rewind up to 90 minutes on the same channel.
The HD DVR automatically goes into power-saving mode after four hours without activity. It will still record, but won't consume as much energy. In addition, the DVR is efficient, earning the Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star award for excellence.
