The main advantage with the 721 is the size of the hard drive (120GB). Both D*Tivo and UTV are upgradeable (hacked) and RCA has a UTV with a 80GB unit available. I upgraded one of my UTVs to a 120GB HD and now can record up to 105 hours. My total cost for that unit was $39 for the UTV, and $123 for the HD. I also pay a $9.95 fee to UTV for the service each month. The 721 doesn't have a monthly fee, but the price is $549. You'd need to determine which is a better value for you. DirecTivo has a $9.95 monthly fee or a $249 lifetime fee. Whichever route you go, you'll love the dual-tuners and the quality of the recordings. Good luck.
