    "As little as possible." If you need an answer I'd say $300 MAX. Any more then that the HR2x will do just fine, thank you. :)

    Is this how much would you like to pay, or what is the most that you would pay. I assume this is on-top of and not inclusive of the DVR fee? Per unit, or total?

    I voted $8, but assumed it's on top of the DVR fee, which is still a good deal IMHO.

    I think $3 per month would be reasonable assuming a decent set of features. I'm not saying I expect the new box to completely function in the same way as, say, a TiVo HD (which I would imagine would cost another $10-15/Mo), but I would like to see something for the extra money.

    I voted $0, because I do not see the added value for me personnaly. If you are more invested in wanting Tivo, then I can see you bewilling to pay for a service you want.

    I, however, and happy with my HR21-700, so unless I can get the Tivo for the same price with no extra fee, Thanks, but no thanks.

    Actually, I think the premium will be mostly in the upfront cost, and not so much in the monthly (there may not even be a monthly premium). IOW, the new Tivo and the then-current HD DVR will probably list for a SRP within $50 of each other, but the HD DVR will still be the basis for shipping-only or lowball deals to get or keep customers, while the Tivo will rarely if ever be discounted and will be aimed at niche customers who want it enough to pay more for it. Replacements for failed units? Free for the HD DVR, but for the Tivo, it's gonna cost ya.

    I already have a DirecTv HD TiVo, and don't pay any extra monthly cost, so $0.

    No extra monthly cost for me, but lets say as an upfront cost I'd pay no more than $100 more than the cost of DTV's models.

    I voted $0. I would have said $5, but after 4 months with the HD Tivo and cable, they will have a hard time just getting me to come back.
    If the new D Tivo does not have ALL of the features of the stand alone, I wont go back.

    I have said since I came to Directv that I would pay full Tivo subscription rates to have access to FULL tivo functionality, so I voted accordingly.

    what he said. Unless they add something more than I got with the 10-250 then why would I want to pay more? :confused:

    The POLL wasn't posted at the time I replied, just the message. :) I had no idea he was referring to monthly fees and not the cost of the box.

    If I have to pay big bucks for the box I wouldn't be willing to pay anything additional for the service.

    I'p pay $5 more per mo. for each DTivo (I have 4) if they have ALL of the features of the non-DirecTV models including MRV, unbox, and everything else.

    I would pay a max of $10 additional a month for the HD Tivo assuming that covers all tivos.

    Why in the world would they not have a commitment? The commitment is not going away. Heck based on a couple of other threads, they have even stopped the no commitment upgrade for HR10 users wishing to swap.

    I guess we'll see how important it becomes to D*:confused: There always seems to be someone who knows some kind of secret password, etc that D* allows certain people in to their system in spite of what the rules for the general public are.

    You look at some of the people that have been on this forum - especially over the past few months - they always seem to know the exact wording for an email, or a special phrase or number to use. There was one person on here a few months ago that seemed to be on a crusade of getting HR10-250 users over to the D* jun. ... err dvr's. One could easily assume he had a certain number of users to convert, and that he had enticements to help convince customers to switch.;) Of course, he hasn't been here for a while... maybe his quota was hit!!
