Advertisements We are switching to Directv in our house, which was fine with me a few months ago as I am a huge tivo fan and wanted HD on my dvr. when I found out they stopped using tivo as a dvr, I was very upset. I have had TiVo for over 4 years and after using regular DVRs at friends, I could never be without it. I called today and asked if I were to purchase a Directv hd tivo box from ebay or online, could I use that when they installed our new service. They said yes...I then asked how long the TiVo boxes would be supported for and the man from Directv told me they will not discontinue the use of Directv Tivo boxes. Is this true. Should I spend the money on ebay for the Directv HD TiVo or just let it go and live with Directv's dvr?
