Interesting. From what I have seen of the DirecTV DVR, it sucks compared to TiVo. HD on DirecTV is a joke as well. It seems like a waste of $10.99 per month unless you get the movie channels. I do get the movie channels, but I hardly ever watch them because they just show the same crap over and over. Something that makes me really angry is that you have to pay extra to get your NFL ST in HD. An extra $99 from what I was told. As if the charge for NFL ST wasn't enough, they want to tack on an extra $100. The only reason I don't drop D* is because I have the HR10-250 (modified) and because cable picture quality around here sucks. I would switch to a SA tivo before I would use a D* DVR.
