OK, I had Dish network come out and install DVR HD. Had pixel des torsion viewing everything I recorded. They came out 3 time and replace DVR and check everything 3 time with no improvement. I had them remove everything.
I called Direct tv and they did the same thing. installed there dish and cables and DVR. Same problems. My question is? Is this the nature of this equipment or is there something they are missing.

II just want to ask a question about a TIVO DVR.


You can buy a used DirecTV with Tivo. You probably had a Hughes SD-DVR40 or SD-DVR80 before. The used model needs to be transferable to your account (which means it can't be leased, it has to have no outstanding charges on the previous account, etc). And you have to buy a new DirecTV card.

If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area or in San Jose, write to tivorepair@gmail.com and they should be able to help you out.

Are there different types of cablecards?


They're lying to you, to charge you more.
A cable card is a cable card is a cable card.  If your provider stands by their "special card" BS, switch to a new cable provider.
They're probably trying to scare you into getting their DVR instead of Tivo.  And it's not the same, ever. Tivo is far superior to any other DVR on the market, free or not.

My tivo HD is not broadcasting or recording in HD


As far as I know, you need the cable cards to get HD through the Tivo, because they're what does the HD decoding and output.

No, unfortunately non-HD tivo's cannot be upgraded to HD Tivos. However, a standard defintion Tivo can still be used with an HD television, at lower definition.
