Default Tivo for DTV

Do existing HD DVR owners will get a replacement Tivo HD DVR (free of cost or minimal cost) or they have to buy/lease one. i want to get tivo but don't to pay again since i paid for two HD DVRs. are there any numbers out what it might cost?

My guess is it'll be a pay the upfront lease cost just like it is now.

I will also guess DIRECTV isn't going to just swap out every DIRECTV HD DVR for a TiVo/DIRECTV HD DVR when it's released.

Why would any DTV customer even want TIVO now? With the latest update of two 90 minutes buffers and a much lower price it makes no sense to buy tivo.

I was thinking the same thing. The biggest gripe for people has been the dual buffers. I like the DirecTV DVR Interface a lot better then the old Tivo one. There really is no reason to switch to a Tivo unit now.

On another forum someone was saying the DIRECTV DVR fee would be more expensive when the customer has the new DIRECTV/TiVo HD DVR when it'e released some day. I'm don't believe it, but if that's true, screw that, I don't want a TiVo type DVR again.

The only nice thing is on TIVO you can connect to another TIVO and transfer recordings.. Will that ever be a feature on DIRECT TV DVR'S

no-one really knows what the pricing on the new DirecTV TiVo will be, but you can certainly expect to pay at least as much up front as for DirecTV's own DVR, and we know from the few press releases and TiVo statements there will be a higher monthly DVR fee. I doubt that there will be any sort of reduced pricing for people who want to exchange their DVRs.

dtv existing DVR are very good too, i have been using them almost for three years with no problems, i was very close to moving to cable but DVR was the main factor i did not move. Tivo with DTV will be killer combination.

They are supposedly testing the MRV(multi-room-viewing) option for the DIRECTV DVRs and DIRECTV receivers now. It's suppose to be coming soon, but soon could mean 6 months from now depending on whom you talk to.

My wife far prefers the Program Guide in the Tivo hr10-250 and refuses to use our HR-21. Thus we watch virtually everything in SD on our HDTV.

So I'm really looking forward to the new Tivo DirecTV DVR so I can finally watch some HD programming.

Well the tech shouldn't have taken it because that was not leased by DirecTV. It sounds like the Tech wanted the unit for parts or something but either way it was owned by them and should have stayed with them.

I can't believe your wife refuses to use the HR-21.
The user interface is different than the TiVo software, but not that much different.

I also can't believe you watch virtually everything in SD on your HDTV just because your wife is stubborn.
