Advertisements Let me start by saying I am a 4 year Directtv customer who just received my first HD TV last week *given to me*. I called Directtv to add HD service and HDDVR box. I was quoted 199 then 149 and they said they will waive the $10 HD fee for the first 6 months. I've been reading the posts and there's actually so much information, I'm getting a bit confused, so I apologize if this question has been asked before as I'm pretty sure it has. Actually a few questions. I am getting a new dish installed since I am switching to HD which they are doing for free. I currently have 4 TV's, The HD will be my 5th. 1) Old philips digital box 1) Directtv R15 peice of junk 1) DirectTV R10 DVR w/TIVO (love it) 1) Hughes HDVR2 w/TIVO (love it) My first question is,, Am I getting a decent deal for the HD DVR from directtv? The second... The two TIVO devices seem to be getting old and tired (lock up a bit) and has audio dropout every now and then in recorded programs. Not knowing how long until Directtv gets their new TIVO boxes in 2010, what type of TIVO box can I look for on sites like Ebay and craigslist that I can replace these 2 with? ,I've really had no problems with Directtv and while I did a bit of reasearch on Dish, I'm not really ready to change yet. SO I'm just looking to see just exactly what make/model boxes I can use without having to pay Directtv. Thanks a bunch and once again, sorry if this is a repost. Actually, now that I think about it. If I'm paying $150.00 for whatever HD DVR directtv is going to give me. Are there any other options such as buying the DVR myself elsewhere, or should I just take the deal?
