HR10-250 networking and new HD channels

I just picked up a HR10-250 and want to (1) enable usb networking to connect to my home network and (2) update the channel guide because its picking up very few HD channels. I've read lots about enabling USB networking (and other features) by installing a new hard drive, but what about updating the channel guide to get the new HD lineup? Has anyone had success with this.

There is no reason to have

There is no reason to have the channel guide on the HR10-250 show any of the new DirecTV HD channels, since the HR10-250 can't tune to them.

All the new HD channels on DirecTV are MPEG4 encoded and the HR10-250 only has the capability to decode MPEG2 channels.
