Just a thought...

Referbs and not scrapping older models help keep costs of replacements and upgrades down. The more DTV has to spend to manufacture equipment the more the customer pays. Great news though! There is a choice for those who would like to pay extra to replace a leased receiver with the same exact model or upgraded model. solidsignal.com

True, but a smaller hard drive isn't exactly comparable, now is it?

Only if the capacity is considered a feature. Ignoring capacity, any Plus HD DVR still does everything else the other models do (except for 3D on the earliest models).

Going from DECA to non-DECA is a challenge to argue but they made a similar transition from internal OTA to external OTA without showing much remorse.

The size of the hard drive is always considered a feature. They brag about how much you can record on it.
Why do you think people add and eSATA drive ? More storage.
There are many many threads wanting to know "what is the largest external drive I can run with my HR??".
There are threads of users thinking they were upgrading to the newest receiver with a larger hard drive and got another one with the same size drive and were very unhappy with that.
