HD DirecTiVo: anything new since September?superfan
Posted 16 December 2008 - 11:57 AM
The main reason I stayed away from DirecTV previously was for two reasons: previously, my apartment in Washington had a north-facing balcony. Second, DVRs had not matured enough to compare to TiVo.
Then, September 3rd, Engadget posts this:
And there was much rejoicing. So, now that I've made the switch to DirecTV, has there been any news yet beyond the "second half of 2009" announcement? I can't wait for this receiver to come out, and then what will my options be? How does DirecTV's upgrade policy work?

As for DirecTV upgrade options, if you want a new unit, you pay for it. How much/little you pay might be determined on your account status, but I doubt they'll be giving these away.

I have no preference either way, but the last DirecTIVO I had was a piece of junk.
I read a report that said the typical symptoms of stress were eating too much, drinking too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Who are they kidding? That's my idea of a perfect day.
now with Verizon FIOS and loving the faster DVR and being able to use both the external & internal drives at the same time
