I have just signed up for directv high def. I would like to get a TIVO but don't want to pay 1K for the hd tivo unit. I also doubt that I will be recording much high def. The question is how to do this.
Should I buy a stand alone tivo, or is there any way to get this type of setup from directv? How does one handle the phone connection of the tivo when there is no nearby phone outlet?

meg,

Did you get a DirecTV HDTV receiver?

If recording high-def isn't important, then you should order the DirecTivo from DirecTV for $99. This doesn't require a phone connection, because all the program information used by Tivo is delivered over satellite.

No question, you should go with the DirecTV DVR.

Best Buy has the 70-hour DirecTV Tivo on sale for $99.
