    They've been in MPEG4 in the 200s for over 6 months now.

    To clarify: This is nothing new. MPEG2 HD channels have been shutting down for a couple years now. As of last summer *all* the ones that are left have been in MPEG4 in the 200s/300s/500s. The MPEG2 versions left in the 70s/80s have only been left because not enough MDU's (apartments) have gotten the new dishes. Now they have so they are shutting down the MPEG2 versions, a year later then they wanted to.

    This information was made available at this site, through DIRECTV's newsletters, and other places across the web 6 months ago:

    http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=131774

    At that time it was made clear that the HR10 TiVo was approaching end of life and DIRECTV was doing everything in their power to get people off that receiver.

    With due respect, I think DIRECTV has done quite a bit to get the message out about the HR10 and make sure people have new hardware.

    SatRacer, I appreciate your offer, but eventually after over 3 hours onthe phone with them, they were able to come to the same conclusion..that i had purchased (leased) a new HD DVR receiver and was not "upgraded" They did the right hting and sent me the replacement for free....and you are right, i now use it as a standard receiver since it has DVR capability. They really just assumed that since my account had two HD DVRs and a STD Receiver on it that i must have been "upgraded" Was not the case, but one person tookt he time to research and personally present my case to upper management.

    As far as giving proper notice, I do not agree that after paying $700 for the inital installation of the Tivo unit and two Standard Receivers 3.5 years ago, that it is proper to make it obsolte without some kind of return or trade in policy. Being that mine was owned and not leased, it further complicated the matter. However it now appears to have been resolved..but thanks to my persistence and one DTV employee who took the time to understand and research. I wish I had his name so he could be recognized.

    Joe
