Advertisements We've used basic DirecTivo for years and loved it - first a Philips DSR 6000 and then when that died a Philips DSR 7000. A while back the latter died too. So, I called up DirecTv and they told me, no problem, they'd ship me a new DVR and since I owned my old box the new one would be free. I was pleasantly surprised, and while I think the lady mentioned that it would be a DTV DVR, it didn't quite click that that meant no more Tivo. Well, we've had the DTV DVR for just over a month and just HATE the DVR service. It doesn't do season passes properly (frequently just records all episodes despite the fact that I told it not to), the menus are much less intuitive than Tivo's and just don't work as smoothly, the DVR has hung at least twice so far and the recording programs were deleted (not just interrupted or stopped). I'm considering some options: * Ask DirecTv if they will replace the DTV box / service with DirecTivo like I had before. It seems unlikely that they will do this. * Ask DirecTv if I can buy my own DirecTivo box and have my Tivo service restored. I'm not sure if I want to do that because I'd have to get an older box to continue recording 2 shows at once, and I like what I hear about the newer Tivo boxes. I don't care about HD, but multi-room viewing and programming Tivo via the internet sound great. * Just switch over to Time Warner where I can use a new Tivo box and record 2 shows at once (I heard their DVR service is bad too). I'm hesitant to make this change as we've been happy with DirecTv until now, and I don't know how good Time Warner will be. Any feedback from other folks who have made these transitions would be much appreciated.
