DirecTivo R10 user wondering how to upgrade
I've had DirecTV and DirecTivo R10 DVRs for about seven years. I've been very happy with them, and I've been resisting the move to HD TV, but recent events have forced me to upgrade the main TV to HD. The bedroom TV is still a CRT.
Though I pay DirecTV for content, I'me really more of a Tivo customer. I don't think I've ever used the DirecTV web site, and I've never paid DirecTV a pay-per-view fee.
I like the DirecTivo user interface and I use season pass routinely.
When I got the HDTV, I also bought a Blu-ray player, and I've been enjoying the HD Netflix. My old DirecTivo units still work fine, and they've been upgraded with big hard drives, but watching SD on an HD set is unsatisfying.
I've read that the new HD Tivo for DTV is quite limited. I've also accumulated a dozen or so Tivo remotes over the years, and being unable to use them would be a minor inconvenience.
The cable provider in my area is Comcast. There's no FIOS in my area.
It would be nice if I could find a solution with about the same monthly cash outlay as my current DTV bill.
What do you think I should do?
