How to buy Directv receivers

I'm sure this has been answered before, but I've just spent an hour searching here and didn't find what I need. So, sorry if it's a redundant question. I'm a Directv subscriber; using the standard Philips receiver and original dish antenna. I'd like to upgrade to TiVO, etc. Can this be done as DYI. From Directv's point of view, it appears I need to pay them $200-$300 for a new dish antenna and a new receiver and installation. Can I buy a 'DIRECTV Plus HD DVR' on ebay? Do I need a new antenna? If the answer is yes to both questions, what does one do after hooking up the new equipment? I could really use dumb-downed step by step. Thanks!
