As well you should! The Tailgater doesn't even work with DirecTV at all, and even if you were on Dish, while you can add a hard-drive to the receiver to make it think it's a DVR, it can only record and watch on a single channel (eg, there is only one tuner). Finally, unless you were to buy two Tailgaters, you couldn't have receivers in both the LR & BR. Ok...sorry for that diversion.
You need to buy a DirecTV dish and tripod. Make sure the dish LNBs are SWM technology (assuming your current DVRs are). (What model are they by the way?)
You need to be mindful that you need different equipment for Hi-Def vs SD TV.
