    I am sorry but I searched for the answer. I have a HR20 wth Tivo. I want to change my package and I am wondering if I have to pay for the DVR service through Directv in order to use the Tivo feature?
    Right now I have tth top package and it shows on my account the DVR service but this is new to me.
    I have had this package for like 7 years

    Thanks for the help

    Not sure what an "HR20 with Tivo" is. I'm guess you actually have and HR10-250 HD Tivo or and HR20 HD DVR. At any rate, yes, you typically pay one DVR Service Fee regardless of how many DVRs you have. For some package tiers that fee is waived. What is your specific Programming Package?

    With the Older Directv Packages: Total, Total Plus etc you had to add the DVR Service seperately at a cost of $5.99 a Month DVR Fee.

    The New Packages already have the DVR Fee built into the Base Package Price. You do not ever see anything listed like DVR Fee.

    If you have had the package for 7 years, you have an old Package, so you would have the Seperate DVR Fee.

    Have you recently added a DVR unit? If so, then the DVR Fee would appear from that time onwards.

    To the OP: If you have a DVR unit with Tivo then it would be the HR10-250 unit. The HR20 is Directv's in house DVR and does not have Tivo.

    You have the TivoHD???

    If thats the case then why the h**l are you talking about Directv? Directv is a Sat company and the TivoHD is for Cable ......

    So read the back of the unit and tell us what you have....

    If its Directv then its probally the HR20. This does not have Tivo Service, nor the Tivo interface. its Directv's inhouse HD DVR.

    If you go down to the next section of the forum, it is devoted entirely to the HR10-250 (aka HD DirecTivo or DirecTV DVR powered by Tivo). To answer your original question - Yes, if you want to use the DVR features you have to pay for them.
