I was kind of hoping for Coax because I still have internal PVR-150 and
a PVR-250. 

The new H24's I have say they can do 1080P. I'm not sure if it really
is. I think I'm going to have to bit the bullet and get the HD-PVRs. I
was kind of hoping someone had a solution where I didnt have to have
more External STB's. My UPS is out of power outlets for me to put
things one! Guess it's time to get another one or put use a power
