Hi.. We've got two of the HR10-250's with current service for DirecTV.. My wife is losing her job at the end of the year and eventually I think we'll have to get rid of pay-TV altogether.. We love our Tivo's but I gather they won't run w/o the DirecTV service.. Is it just an issue of the EPG not being available or is there something else to it..?

It would be nice to move over to either a Moxi 3 tuner HD PVR or even better to a Tivo Premier/XL pair and run everything OTA, but I can't justify the cost of either of these at ~>$1k for two boxes (one for living room + 1 for master bedroom).. Are there any other cheaper boxes out there that are like a Popcorn or Roku box but with dual ATSC tuners + DVR and that don't cost ~$500+/ea? Thx!

Thanks! I hadn't run across those units.. Unfortunately I see more quality issues in the message threads than I'd like to see with something like this.. I'm not sure that's a good unit to have at home if it's going to be problematic as it sounds.. I'll keep an eye on it though..
