I currently have Dish 921 HD DVR and hate it. I came from Directv over a year ago because I didn't want to spend the $800 or more for the 10-250. What a mistake. Anyway, my question is, now that the 10-250 is affordable ( I found it for $199 after rebate thru E-bay), they have an R10 for $30 additional but I have noticed that most of the posts state that the HDVR2 is the only unit that can be hacked. I own an HDVR2 (It was active over a year ago on my account). I was considering activating it thru a family member at their home address/phone number along with a new 10-250 Tivo. Does anyone know the pros and cons of doing this vs. getting a new R10 for the $30.
