It WILL be an HR20, you WILL have to extend your commitment by two years and it WILL be leased.

For information, the HR10-250 is NOT a TiVo. It's a DirecTV receiver with TiVo service and yes, there is a difference. Many people who have TiVo come here wondering why their D* box doesn't have all the TiVo features and this is the reason. Apologies if you think I'm being picky, but I'm not - just clarifying.

If they're sending it free, it will be free. Usually, they charge $19.95 S&H, but it sounds like they even waived that.

Tony, please edit you post to say that the HR20 is not a TiVo. It currently says HR10. :) We don't need any more confusion around than we already have. :D
No, Jim, it's what I meant to say (as already pointed out).

The confusion comes from those who come here wondering why they can't get all of TiVo's features from their D* box. The reason is as I stated - a D* box is NOT a TiVo.

Sure, it's a lot closer to TiVo than the HR20, which is just barely a DVR (that DOESN'T run TiVo software), but it is NOT a TiVo, it is not supported by TiVo and TiVo doesn't even collect the subscription fee (well, not directly anyway!).

Oh and mitkraft, whether you agree with it or not, I didn't state an opinion, I stated a fact, so feel free to be wrong if you want.

Seems that some people can't handle the truth!

Anyway, my point was to help not to insult. If anyone took it whe wrong way, then I apologize.
