Default Tivo and Directv question

I have an HR-20 and am thinking of picking up a Tivo HD on Ebay. Do these still work with Directv? Can I pull HD programing from the Tivo? What I am looking to do is save the movies on a separate HDD and stream them to my 360.

Any help would be great.

The HR10 Tivo's will not carry the new MPEG4 signals, so with those receivers you will only get about 7 HD channels... DirecTV is in the process of having all of their HD channels in MPEG4, and soon all of those older receivers will have to be traded up for the 20/21 models...

If you have Costco's in your area they have the 20/21 models for $169 each...

I know eSATA hard drives also work with the HR20. You could just get an external hard drive (or internal, but that would void the warranty).

Yeah I have a HR20. I like it but wish I could do something with the data. I also have an esata added.

With DTV going to MPEG-4, I don't think I will get a Tivo.
