Just got off the phone inquiring about an HR34. The phone rep said that the receiver will not have all the functionality unless I get a sony TV that has RVU functionality. Is Directv that desperate now that they are now pushing TV's for Sony? I don't like it. She tried to make it seem like the thing wouldn't work without a Sony TV. Oh well... I'll just mail order it and hook it up my self. Rant over.
