what's a "botto line"?
A longtime TIVO fan and DirecTV customer here--speaking from first hand experience, I would bet money on the fact that you folks will not like the new unit. There is so much that is NOT on this box that is on the current DirecTV HD DVRs. It's pretty much a DirecTV unit with the TIVO name, and that's about it. It's really nothing like the old DirecTV/TIVO Series 1 & Series 2 units.
They won't when they see this box and ask, "Is that it???"
It's basically for people who just have to have something with the word "TIVO" on it.
Why would someone who feels that way even bother to visit this forum?
It's that nagging feeling that, even though you're right, your mind is made up, you've committed, you may have made a mistake. So you sneak a look back over your shoulder every time you hear a noise. And keep saying, to anyone who will listen, "I was right, I was right."
I admit, with some embarrassment, I've been there.
In Jesse11's case, apparently to post in multiple threads exact wording lifted from previous posts by others.
I suspect the end aim is some sort of spam or fraud.
I think we all know why.
I don't know how you people are getting away with this. In my day you would be put on a short vacation for this kind of talk.
In any case I am trying to believe the best of my fellow man and that there is no such motivation here.
Because people like to follow new technologies even if they don't plan to utilize them?
And, people have been waiting for a long time for the new DirecTiVo and even though they've given up, their still curious how it's going to turn out?
And, because people are TiVo fans and wish this device was all it should've been?
What part of "Jesse11 was cutting and pasting from earlier posts by real TCF members" are y'all not understanding?
/rofl we are talking about the same company aren't we.
Sorry the hardware was not "outdated" when the agreement was entered into. How many of theose "seven different cable companies" shipped on schedule? Comcast anyone?
You are getting a HR10-250 with Mpeg4, not worth it anymore, wasn't worth it 3 years ago.
Yes i still have a hr10-250 active, it is in the garage hooked up to a 19 inch crt tv for when I am working on restoring the Norton 750, it works - to a point
I would gladly take an HR10-250 with Mpeg4.
That's all most of us wanted at the time when Murdoch pulled the plug. With incremental improvements since then it would likely have been quite a machine by now. Better OTA tuners, a little faster processing, "official" MRV and Tivo-to-go as opposed to the easy hack. Still, even now I'd be happy if we could just get back to where we were.
Unfortunately we're not even going to be getting an HR10-250, looks like.
It looks like its functionality will basically be that of an MPEG-4 HR10-250. What is it missing?
Easy hackability to activate MRV and Tivo-to-go.
Indeed. It won't be hackable like the traditional TIVOs.
Ah.... I never did that with mine.
Eureka!!! An Announcement! It is finally here (delete the spaces below):

Cross-posted from the "It's Here" thread:
Just ordered my THR-22 from D*.
The installer will be here on the 13th.
Sense it was a new equipment order, had to commit to another 24 months of service which it no big deal as I'm not going anywhere.
I have lifetime DVR service so the THR-22 is covered under that. Just had to pay for the additional receiver which was $6.
Will post again with some details about it after it arrives.
Still in shock over no kidzone, it's the number one feature I miss about TiVo.
I'd be sure to get that in writing from DirecTV, because according to them, there is a $5/month TIVO fee for this receiver, regardless of whether you pay any other monthly fees or have "lifetime" DVR service.
They have stated that there is a monthly DVR fee and a monthly TIVO fee, the latter applying to this receiver alone and in addition to any other fees.
