Nope... won't even be able to pull them..

No DTiVo can.

ZERO chance you will get a refund for lifetime
Right next to that... is the chance of a new HD DtiVo

You will probably be able to get an HR20 for $99 or less.

Only HD Locals...

The rest should be comming in September... around 50 have been announced.
Will my SD Directivo record them or not. and can ahr10-250 record them in Sd. If not D* will Owe me a refund for my lifetime Dvr fee or give me a free Hr20. I am hoping that we will hear an anouncement of a new hr10-300 directivo S3 :)
we will see wont we when the class action lawsuit with the perhaps 1 million lifetime subs dvrs stop working.

That when D* switches to Mpeg 4 and your dvr(directivo) no longer works with D* That They will not replace the dvr with one that works or refund the lifetime service.
That is not what you asked... (see PM quote above).
You asked if you would get a REFUND for lifetime... not if the lifetime service would continue

What do you think. Perhaps they will try and not do one of the two but what will be the end result. Mabye they will send out a new version that will start us rebooting again :rolleyes: When I paid my 250 LIFETIME service There were no r15 or hr20. They call it dvr service fine either make my dvr work,The one i have Tivo or replace it with one that works or give me back my lifetime money. D* Made a fatal error when the changed the dvr fee to the account. Cause by now all or most of those S1 boxes are long gone and this would not be an issue.
When you paid that 250 Lifetime... there was no HR10-250 or Series 2 DTiVo's either... but they did carry over to those... and instead of the original concept of the LIFETIME service... was for a SINGLE BOX, not for an entire ACCOUNT of boxes, which it ended up covering.... I think you got a HECK of a lot more out of the liftetime amount.... even compared to those on SA Lifetimes.

To the gentleman who said D* wont accomodate The liftime subs w only tivo I say
I will be looking in my magazines for one of those class action deelies or I may get one in the mail. I may Have to pay for the crappy hr20 now but will be seeing 100-200 credit on my D* account after suit ;) ;) ;) Or I will just leave D* in which case they lose like 80 a month x 12 Whoa 960 bucks. I figure I am good for about another 20 years Whoa thats close to like 20,000 per say 1 million subs lost At least :eek:

Remember There are many out there that WILL just Leave when tivo is not supported So it is in D* best interest to keep as many subs as possible Now I have 2 Directivo dvrs on my account 2 free hr20s are for sure worth it vs losing another sub. We will see. I reall hope Liberty is a smart company and will see that if they kill 4 million dvrs they will lose a SH*TLOAD Of money.
Before you spend your money on your Class Action deally...... .be sure you know what you are getting into... and make sure you have all your facts straight...

And make sure you ask the CORRECT question, and don't interpret an answer for a different question... to be the answer for the one you really wanted to know.

The truth of the matter is: if you would have asked.
If you activate a DVR+ unit while you still have your LIFETIME active on your account... you will still get LIFETIME coverage for that unit... that hasn't change.

So next time you ask me a question via PM... be sure you ask the question you want to ask... there isn't anything to hide... and frankly... in all honest.. don't bother PMing me... just ask out here in the public forum..

And BTW... where did you get the number that there are over 1 Million LIFETIME subscriptions out there active on DirecTV coverage?

I'm pretty sure the lifetime service is considered to be the lifetime of the DVR itself, not your lifetime. It will sure be horrible to have to pay the monthly DVR fee to DIRECTV. I think it's $5.99/month or so. You'll have to get a 2nd or 3rd job to pay for it. :rolleyes:
That is the way it was for the original lifetime contracts... they were tied to the exact receiver....

Then when they got moved to DirecTV, they got tagged to the account, not just the specific receiver.
