Let's stop encouraging DirecTV to charge gigantic monthly fees for the HR34. Some of us want it for the multiple tuners and don't intend to have 3 rooms hooked up at all. If the monthly fee is $18-20, we're no longer customers. I don't see how that's a win either.
note that I said "fully functional". If you're not using RVU clients, then have DirecTV disable that certain functionality and charge the standard HD-DVR rates. To others such as myself, we want the HR34 for the multiroom functionality. My family can get along with 5 tuners in total, but I need lots of receivers to service all of the TVs in my house.
