    I called this morning to get a replacement DVR after my Philips DirecTiVo died. I went to Best Buy first to get an R22 and there were none available in Az. The CSR said they were recalled. They're sending me an R16 "free of charge and no new commitment"

    If the R22 was discontinued, what is the current model number for a networkable non-HD DVR? Thanks.

    I remember reading a post somewhere quoting from the directv forums that all new local72swap areas as of June 17th I believe are getting HR series DVRs installed. So now in MPEG 4 local swap markets HD DVRs are being installed.

    Here is the thread from the directv help forums where i originally read what was happening in MPEG4 local swap areas. I am not sure if this is what you were looking for or not.

    No new commitment? Must be a recent policy change at DirecTV.
