Would you use your R15 more if it had On Demand?

I know it's a little late but it's funny you ask. My R15-300 is in my daughters room and she has been complaining to me because she does not have On Demand.

So yes, it is something we would use.

If DirecTV is considered making the R15 series compatible with a DirecTV rebranded networking adapter (like microsofts usb adapter for the xbox), I think they would sell like hotcakes (or atleast, in a similar fassion to the AM-21).
Sales wouldnt jump immediately, A few CE'ers and board members would purchase them, most of us would wait for a price drop.
Then run an ad campaign that now instead of upgrading to newer hardware you can purchase an adapter to make your current hardware compatible with the new stuff and a small portion of the public would jump on them as well.

I have HR20's. 1 in the bedroom and one in the bar (those being the locations which I watch the most TV). I would love to be able to go in the family room where the R15 is and download some content, and maybe one day down the road watch MRV content from the other 2 (although it'd mostly be HD so unless the R15 got the ability to downres it I'd be S.O.L.). Some of my friends in SD-only households have seriously considered upgrading to an R22 or HDDVR just for the DOD ability, but have decided it's not worth the HD charge. Others I know would enjoy the feature, but wouldnt spend the extra money on the hardware to get it.

So in the shortest of terms: Yes!

EDIT:
Wow... Apparently this sleeping beauty has been awakened...

Way to resurrect an old thread. I had forgotten I even started this one.
