    JMHO, but I think you should be able to plug a thumb drive in and get trick play.

    I think that would be a great idea too. I don't know if you can do that and I don't know how hard it would be to build that functionality.

    So, I've got a question about the "select markets" that these will be available on October 12. Will they be available to every new subscriber in those markets? Will you be able to select a "whole home DVR" from the directv.com web site or do you have to call someone directly?

    You will pretty much have to know what to ask for and you won't be able to do it online.

    Hi stevenjr,

    Who did you speak with at Directv on getting the Whole Home DVR. I'm an existing customer in the Pittsburgh test market and called on Friday and was told not available to me.

    I'd really like to get one soon... been a customer for over 10 years and always able to get all the new stuff. I remember paying almost $800. when the HD DirecTV Tivo first came out.

    Whole-Home is not the same as the HR34. You should be able to get whole-home, that is just an HD DVR and at least one HD receiver or additional DVR. I think the only people who might have problems getting that would be certain apartment dwellers.

    Saw it. Don't remember where. It was I think only six cities. I seem to remember Pittsburgh as the only one east of Mississippi.

    Just saw this on Engadget. Also, damn I wish I lived closer to Austin, I am in Houston, Like I said I have been waiting almost 3 years for this and have been out of contract for longer than that.
