    more dictionary based reasoning....

    service - To copulate with. Used of a male animal, especially studs.

    I want MRV, but I don't want to get "serviced" by DirecTV, therefore it has to be a feature. :grin:

    I voted feature, but when I look in the system settings of my R22, it says service.

    This poll is about your thoughts, not what DirecTV says. We all know what DirecTV says, we don't need a poll to figure that out.

    It's a feature, just like Doubleplay, just like the ability to record (DVR "service").

    This is not like the HD Service where we're using DirecTVs bandwidth, or the VOD Service where we're using DirecTVs (and our own) bandwidth for PPVs.

    A service is something that brings content to my home such as PPV or DOD.

    A feature is something that allows me to use that content within my home such as FFW, 30 Skip, or MRV.

    IT world, it is a service. TV and consumer world, a feature.

    IMO it is a feature in that it adds functionality but is not having to be delivered to the consumer. It is a feature that you use and own internally. A service has to be delivered continually like PPV, TV Channels, Internet, Cell Phone, Electricity, etc.

    Its a feature, not a service.

    I cannot call a CSR and by the third one have it activated and name my IRD's.

    I cannot do the same via DirecTV.com.

    I would rather have them charge me for DirecTV on Demand and have multi-room free. I will pay and install my own DECA's when available.

    P.S.- I will never pay extra for MRV. I will set each DVR for each recording to save the money. If I decide to pay, it would be a small upfront one time charge, no more than $50.00.

    I think Beta users should get a lifetime grandfathering should they choose to keep it.
