Direct TV - which DVR?

Right now I'm using a regular Direct TV decoder with a Winegard Trav'lr in my travel trailer. It's an H24-200. This is off my home Direct TV account. Works pretty well. I had to get a b-band converter to get all my channels, but other than that no issues. The Travlr is on a tripod mount, if you can believe it!

My new 5th wheel is coming pre-installed with a Travlr antenna mounted on the roof. I'd like to put my existing decoder on the bedroom TV and get a DVR for the living room TV.

Which DVR should I get? I'd like to know before I talk to the Direct TV folks. I have one at home, but it controls all the other boxes so you can share the recordings. I'd like something not dependent on my home setup, that I can use either in the house, or in my RV. I assume I'll need another b converter too. Anything else I'll need?

I have the "HR23-700" - not a lot of bells & whistles, just the basic HD DVR. It works well for me. Don't recall if I am using a b converter?? You will need two lines coming in from the dish to record and watch TV at the same time. I had to have this additional line add in my 5th wheel.
