I bought my parents a DirecTivo system for X-Mas. After setting that up for them, I have gotten the bug & want one for myself.
But, my preference would be an HD capable unit. Is the DirecTV merger stuff effecting their release of new hardware?
Also, I'm a bit hesitant to get a DirecTivo for a number of reasons: 1 Year commitment to DirecTV for the Tivo systems, Tivo lifetime subscription limited to that serial number, hardware obsolete after merger (?), and NO HD!
