No, there is no way out of the 4.99 lease fee.
Even if you lose the LA HD feeds though, you're going to gain some really excellent HD channels.
Well since D* called me and I already had a H10-250 Tivo they said it wouldn't require a 2 year commitment and if they offer HD locals in my area which they do 2, 4, 5 and 13 I will lose the free LA feeds of CBS and FOX (waiver since I'm in an O & O market). They said it's an FCC requirement that if they can offer your locals in HD, they have to pull the national feeds.
I get to keep my old HD Tivo maybe I'll move it upstairs and use it until it ceases to receive signals.
I'm in the system for the free upgrade they left me a phone number for the free upgrade line, don't know how I qualified but the CSR spent a lot of time on the phone with me answering all of my questions. He said D* is trying to convert the existing subscribers to the new system and the free upgrade is a little nudge.
