    Folks, there's precious little to say about the upcoming DIRECTV TiVo-based device that hasn't already been said, but here's the thread for you to say it. There really is nothing new but if there is you'll read it here. :)

    Synopsis of common arguments: (in other words, this ground's already been trodden, do we have to go there again?)
    • Many people like the TiVo interface, especially the list guide.
    • Many people are equally fond of the DIRECTV interface.
    • Many people think that TiVos are easier for them to use.
    • Many people think that DIRECTV DVRs are easier for them to use.
    • Standalone TiVo devices have many features that are appealing to people.
    • No guarantee has been made that any feature from a standalone TiVo will make it to the DIRECTV TiVo.
    • The new device will run on DIRECTV hardware, although we don't know how that will work (we have some ideas).
    • TiVo, Inc. will develop the software for the device and seems to be solely responsible for the user experience.
    Ground Rules:
    • DISCUSS THE TOPIC NOT EACH OTHER.
    • This is not a free-for-all. Rudeness will not be tolerated.
    • Remember that all forum rules are still in effect.
    • Do not "bump" this thread.
    • Other threads relating to the DirecTV TiVo-HD Receiver will be closed.
    • If you harp on a particular point to the exclusion of others, your posts may be deleted.

    Further, we've learned that the new TiVo for DIRECTV will not have the upgraded user experience seen in the TiVo Premiere.

    This is a very serious and solemn subject, starting it on 4/1 would tarnish its image:)

    Seriously though, June is not too far away, certainly much sooner than 3 years.

    If everything continues to go smoothly then late Q2 is a definite possibility…

    I don't know if this has already been discussed but will services such as Directv Active, Gamelounge and sportsguide work with the this Tivo? Since it's just Tivo making the software I'd say no. But it looks like what it says on the Tivo site it will support Directv On Demand. Maybe the peanut remote will have the four colored buttons along with the active button like the current Directv remotes.

    SO, when this is released in Q2 (hopefully...), will it be sold in stores such as Best Buy or will it be sold through TiVo or DirecTv? I really don't guess it matters much...I just hope it's equal to or better than my HR22...Please God, let it be AT LEAST that good... :)

    DirecTV has very specifically stated that these will be included in the new Tivo.

    How noisy is your HR22? My Hr20's are noisy. The hard drives clicking away are louder than the programming volume at times. Too bad TIVO isnt developing the hardware as well. My trusty old HR10-250 is whisper quiet.

    My HR22-100 was installed 14 months ago. Like your HR10-250 it is very reliable and is very quiet.

    Good to know. I'd be disappointed if the TIVO came and it was noisy.

    the hr10 was handled by Directv, Directv no longer places boxes in the retail outlets like Best Buy, neither do they sell units. Best guess - leased through Directv, possible monthly surcharge for the unit, hack ability removed as in the HR2X's As far as good or better, supposedly it it built on the HR22, so the only "better" would be the software - and it is reported to be a HR10 w/ Mpeg4 capability.
