Am I correct in assuming that everyone will be forced to pay $$$ to lease new HD DVR?

So, can you identify what parts of the false information is proprietary? Or does D* consider it's pricing information to be proprietary? No wonder it is so hard to get information out of D*, especially if they consider what they are charging to be a trade secret.


The pricing is not what I was talking about. I was talking about information that alorarosalyn posted in another thread.
In this thread, alorarosalyn is just showing their ignorance:

$500? No, Directv is not going to charge that much for the new hr20. Same price as the current one.

Since $500 (ok, $499) is the price of the current HD-DVR, this sentence makes no sense and shows alorarosalyn's ignorance of the facts.

If DirecTv wants to have a chance of keeping me as a customer they better not try and charge me $500 plus a leasing fee if/when I upgrade to an MPEG4 DVR. That might actually push me back to Comcast, especially if/when Comcast gets TiVo in their HD DVR boxes.
$500 dollars and I won't own the box? That's just crazy. at least there is no upfront fee like that with cable. I would actually consider it for TiVo, but the HD DVR would have to be extremely good to justify that.
