I've been looking forward to MRV for quite some time. This is welcome news. But... I have to admit (and please, don't hit me) that the fee is a little surprising; I had hoped that it would be included at no additional cost. I understand the "maintenance" aspect of it, but Directv already activates and maintains software on every receiver so I don't see how this additional feature requires a separate fee and maintenance. On Demand didn't require a fee but I'm sure it requires very specific programming, as well. For the record, I subscribe to HD Extra and never complained about the additional cost; it includes channels that require carrier fees. I fully understand and support the "if you don't want it, don't pay for it" mantra and I won't start bashing Directv if the continue to charge a fee. I hope I'm being "cheap" here. It just seems as though this could easily be a free service.
