I previously had a old, big box type tv so obviously I also had the regular hd cable box with directv. For Christmas I received a new 40" HDTV, but am still stuck with the old cable box. Is there a way to get HD picture on my new tv without getting a new hd cable box, or am I stuck with the old type picture?

You can probably connect the TV with component (red, green, blue video and red/white for audio) cable.
What model is the HRDVR behind the access card door.

What is the model of this receiver ?

That receiver is not HD. Call DirecTV to see if you qualify for a free upgrade. You most likely need a new dish as well
