that you can now order the HR20 on the Directv website. There is no longer the link to the waiting list, and I got as far as the credit card charge screen. I wonder what happened to being contacted by DTV if your on the waiting list. I got no call or e-mail and I've been on the waiting list for 10 days.

Must be because I don't have one yet, I just visited there again and it is available for me to order. I want to get one soon, but I am waiting to see how many Best Buy gift cards I get for Christmas first now. I've got a 10% discount coupon I got from DTV for Best Buy, and if I can pick up a few $25-$50 gift cards, I'll spring for it there instead.

I got on the waiting list abou Dec 1st-ish. About 3 days later I got a call to call DirecTV and I can now order one, and did ($300.)
The install date, however, was Dec 21st. They came out and installed one.
At the time I attempted to order 2, but was told I'd have to wait 6 months to order another due to demand.
On Dec 27th, I went to DirecTV's site and there was a link to order an HR20 for $200. I was surprised when it put my order through.
I called DirecTV to ask them to send it to me rather than schedule an install date (as I already had lines and a dish) and they refused, said an installer must deliver it.
I got SUPER lucky and got an install date 2 days later (yesterday morning.) After about 15 mins the installer was gone and I had my 2nd one up and running.

I have 2 more DVRs to replace with HD DVRs. I noticed Circuit City just got them back on circuitcity.com for $300. But since I got my last one for $200 on DirecTV.com, I'm going to hold out a while and see if I can get another for that price eventually.
After I ordered the 2nd one, the link for the HR20 went away. I guess I'll just have to keep checking back periodically until the site puts the link back up for me to order another. Or break down and order one through CCity or BBuy.

Wow! I ordered mine on Thursday and I'm glad I didn't wait. Wonder why the link went away so fast? It was $199 on line and $299 over the phone. In fact the CSR I talked to told me that the link didn't exist. Maybe it was a mistake and we lucked out, this is my 2nd unit also.
