I know how much you all LOVE polls. But in light of the article posted by Earl today, I thought it would be a fair question to ask:

Would you pay 1 dollar more per month to trade in your HR20 and have a fully functioning HD MPEG4 compliant DirecTIVO?
I'd pay quite a bit more than $1 for the option.

I voted no!

I know it does not seem so now, but once the HR20 is fixed (if ever) it has potential to be a better DVR!

No, realy, I'm being serious now......
I believe you :)

I would guess that many if not most folks would do the same. But there is a substantial number of people who, like me, would choose to pay more for an MPEG4 DirecTivo.

But are there enough of you... that are willing to do that.
To offset the cost of R&D on a new box, and the support of that box...
Obviously we don't know. It also depends on how much of the costs/risks are actually borne by D* vs. Tivo (i.e., the cable companies didn't subsidize the S3).

Let's create another poll about something that will never happen.

Would you pay an extra buck a month for a DVR that would download programs directly to your brain while you were in bed sleeping ?
Thanks for your input, Mr. Murdoch. Or is that Mr. Malone? :)
