    It is an upgrade to the software on the HR series receivers. There will be no charge and in fact it will be pushed out to all of the receivers whether they want it or not.

    Which means they'll use it as a new selling point for their current, don't have to share any of the revenue with TiVo, hardware.

    the unit from tivo for directv is limited to the classic hr10-250 style interface, given the history of the posts in the various threads relating to it and that being a major selling point for them, if it had the new HD GUI from directv there would be a lot of screaming about it

    The HR 10-250 interface is such an old clunky display I think it's shame they are using it. The new Hd interface is very quick, quite good looking and incorporates suggestions - as show on the linked page.

    There's no way to know in advance. This rollout is proceeding very slowly, probably because of the magnitude of the user interface changes and concerns about flooding the support centers with calls. Supposedly the rollout should complete during December and January for most of us.

    It's nice but some people are complaining about certain features, nothing new with that...

    It is not even funny anymore. How DirecTV is supose to sell TiVo as a premium DVR if Tivo has nothing to bring to the table that would justify additional fee? If anything, TiVo should be given away as an entry level unit.

    The don't. The TiVo is vastly inferior, even as a huge TiVo fan I can admit that...

    The above link shows this as an upgrade to the *guide*. Is it just that, or is it an upgrade to the whole HD UI?

    It's the whole user interface.

    Any way to accelerate receiving the update? Any kind of list to sign up and get priority?

    Can the HRs deal with more than 50 Series Links yet?
