Apologies if I'm misposting somehow, but I was just hit with a bombshell yesterday by DirecTV and after wallowing in misery on the Tivocommunity forums, I thought I'd come over here for some additional perspective. I'm a long-time DirecTV Tivo user since 2001, currently using the HR10-250. I've just learned from a DirecTV CSR that I will eventually be forced to the HR20 for more HD programming because of Mpeg4 and that the HR10 will soon be "downgraded" to only support standard definition programming. My issue is this, although I do sincerely believe that Tivo is god's machine, I would consider staying with DirecTV and moving to the HR20 if it weren't for that damn REMOTE. The Tivo remote is god's remote, the most perfect and user-friendly remote ever, EVER, created. The DirecTV remote on the other hand--with its unlabled rainbow buttons, channel change button toward the bottom, the tiny pause button instead of the Tivo setup...I could go on with my disdain--is just plain pathetic. Why the hell doesn't DirecTV scrap their current POS remote and start from where god's remote left off? I could stomach the thought of going to the DirecTV DVR interface, but I just cannot see putting up with that gotdam remote. Am I crazy, shallow, overreacting, or does anyone else feel me on this?
