If it is other then a hard drive failure (thus something and end user can fixed), your DTivo will be out of warranty.... thus if you get anything from DirecTV for it, it would be what ever DVR they are using at the time.
And who knows what things will be like in a "few" (3 or more) years from now.
Their could be something complete different out there.
