    I had the HR10-250 as well, and as I stated above, I have no desire for another Tivo. IMO, the current generation HD DVR is better in every respect.

    Before anyone uses my statement to start another Tivo vs. HRxx discussion, notice I said "IN MY OPINION."

    I agree that I don't know what it could do that the current ones don't but comparing something from several years ago to what we have today isn't really fair in my mind.

    Honestly, I just want to see what it's all about and for an extra $5 a month I guess I'll bite the bullet if given the opportunity. In this case, I really don't expect a new Tivo is on it's way, though.

    Is the $5 Tivo fee on top of the $7 DVR fee, or in lieu of it?

    This is totally a guess but I would think that if you have both types of DVRs you pay both fees. If you have all one or the other you only pay the one. If the Tivo is another $5 per box they can keep them all.

    That graphic is also an HR24 style graphic, but probably just a placeholder anyway.

    Tried to pull it up on the Directv site. Can't see it.

    Not that I was going to get one anyway, but that there seals it.

    Not seeing it as an option -- but while it was checking on my account, I discovered I have been getting Showtime free since April 21st. Nice of them not to tell me.

    One thing I have discovered. This is definitely some sort of mistake. Since the picture was for position only, one can only assume that the price is for position only as well. In other words, I don't think we know more today than we knew yesterday.

    Well, we have mock-ups of the page DIRECTV is preparing for customers to acquire said TiVo. That's something. :)

    Sounds like you'll get an "Empty Box" special. :)

    This is a good sign that the TiVo is coming. (It's also a not quite so good sign--someone make a boo-boo.) :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I think I agree with most of what has been said. The fact that they chose a $99 price point is odd versus just the old $199 price - at least it's odd to me. It could mean nothing, though.

    To me what I find even more odd is that they added the graphic about 'valued customer' in there. That's not something that just came along for the ride but was purposely added. Even more perplexing is that if this is indeed a mistake, it was clearly targeted to some accounts and not others. We just don't know if that was intentional or not.

    After I completed the order I still haven't received any sort of order confirmation or anything like for whatever that's worth.

    I like how I was referred to as a long time member. Oddly enough, I really am a long time member with an old, forgotten, user name but this one only has about 3 years history with it.

    I always knew fame wouldn't get to my head. I feel exactly the same.
