Weee another MRV Fee thread!! I have calmed down over this issue. Directv has made a poor decision in my eyes to charge for this. I will not pay for it. I can get around it with physical wiring. I will say 2 things about it however. 1. I think they are playing catch up with the alternative providers with one central dvr that set top boxes can access from any tv. This should be a sell point without extra fees. 2. After constantly boasting about my Directv service and its advantages to family, friends, and co-workers. I have stopped since I heard news of this. I do not speak poorly of my service. I simply do not have any more pride in my provider. I just am very disappointed with the greed involved.
