So, is this a single $5.00 fee, even if you have multiple THR-22s? It's a moot point for me. In the 8 months since I switched over to HR-24s, I don't really miss Tivo anymore. There are still a few things I really dislike about the DirecTV DVR method, but it's adequate for my purposes. It's too bad, if this new unit had come out a year ago, I think I would not have too much of a problem with paying an extra $5.00 a month - assuming that's for "unlimited" DirecTivos - for Tivo quality.
