It was a tough call between H25 and DVR for me. RVU at this point is not really an option because of the uncertain RVU future and I don't have one of the few Samsung TV models. My goal would be power reduction so I would choose the H25 so that I would have a lower power standby mode than a DVR. Why was an H25 used in the poll versus other non-DVR H models? The RVU client fee is really lame on Directv's part.
