    The poll is like asking which foot I'd like to be shot in, my right or my left.:)

    It's a software enhancement and should not be charged for. If there is a charge, I'll not use it.

    I would only use it if it were free. I have gone this long without it. I definitely wouldn't pay to have it added.

    Not interested in paying, but am interested in the feature.

    As with many polls here, no poll option for me.

    I voted "nothing". I will use the feature once or twice a month if it is free. I won't use it or all if it comes with a price tag.

    Not voting here, either. I agree with those that feel it should be considered just another feature, with the cost covered by the fees already being paid.
    Oh, and I'm VERY interested in the feature.

    I would pay about $5 for it...and then cancel one of my less-used receivers so as not to raise my monthly bill.

    I'm not interested in MRV. To get it I would have to spend $99 to upgrade my receiver (that I'm not using) plus the $5 a month fee. With my laptops, and Directv2pc, I can watch my recordings in any room I'm in, without additonal costs.

    Only interested if its free. U-verse doesn't charge for it. It would be a very nice added feature but if it cost money I wouldn't get it.

    It will save me a ton of space so I don't have to record stuff on all 3 of my DVRs because I don't know which room I'll be in when I want to watch it.

    Can't wait for it and I hear it will be here by the end of the year. Rock N Roll!!!

    But I don't think I should have to pay for it anymore than I should have to pay for DVR SCHEDULING or any other enhancement Directv wants to enact to entice customers to sign up for service.

    Same here. This is the feature I am most looking forward to getting my hands on but if Directv decides to charge a fee that would reduce the likelihood of it being adopted in my household.

    The question is what's it worth to DirecTv - My business.

    If they charge, AT&T will have the upper hand on them for it. I hardly doubt they will charge.

    If they do charge, I won't have the service as I'm having a hard time paying the $5 for the HD Extra Pack...

    Remember when Ma Bell charged you rent for all the phones in your house? DTV is doing the same these days with a charge per "extra" receiver. This means I have to pay an extra $15 bucks a month for my 3 addtional receivers. The $29.95 package they advertise on TV is a joke once you factor in all the stuff they don't mention like the extra charges for DVR's, receivers, HD etc. I have an HD DRV, SD DVR and two ancient RCA receivers and the HD package. This drives up my monthly bill to about $100 plus. Only way I would have the slightest interest in yet another "feature" would be if it was FREE!
