Oh, and further to Hoosier's silly point - I have a "personal attachment to particular content" on my DVR until its viewed, whether that's hours or months old. What a silly argument.

The protection plan replacement of equipment every 2 years thing. How do they guarantee the newest equipment when they can't do it now. You can't be guaranteed a hr24 over a hr21 and is this the standard pp plan or the expanded one.
It's a guaranteed free upgrade not an update. As was said in another post, the upgrade option is to take a lesser receiver and upgrade to a better receiver type, not a newer model. If you have 3 HD DVR's than the only real upgrade for that system is to move to the Genie, not a newer HD DVR. They will not be model specific though if you order the Genie, you get the HR34. I'll be curious to see if they can guarantee the HR44 over the HR34 when it launches, though I highly doubt it.
