Until DirecTV comes out with the RVU compliant hardware, so I can have a thin client that can perform all the standard DVR functions I'm staying with a DVR.

I prefer having redundancy using 2 HD DVRs and "x" number of HD receivers. The odds of downtime/missing something are far lower.

A single server (HMC30) approach increases the risk of the scenario where if the main unit is down everything is out of service...
