I believe the only HD capable receiver not capable of MPEG-4 is the DSR530 as the DSR500 was already rendered obsolete when the HD channels transitioned from QPSK and 8PSK modulation.
The DSR505 supports 8PSK and is still operational with MPEG2 HD channels. I have one and it's still chugging along. I believe the DSR505 replaced the DSR500 solely for it's 8PSK support.
