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

My R15 is in my home office. I'd like to do MRV/DOD and Music streams. I have alot of favorites in TVersity that I'd like to play through the R15. I'm thinking about swapping it out with an HR2x just to get the network stuff in my office.
Yep. In fact, substitute PlayOn for TVersity and the above is my situation, too.

So that makes me wonder if networking were to somehow be enabled on the SD DVRs, if it would be a comprehensive implementation that supported all networking functions, or if it would be limited to on-demand functionality only.

So yes, it is something we would use.

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!
Wow... Apparently this sleeping beauty has been awakened...
