Is anyone still buying this unit, since there is no guarantee on it's use after the conversion?


I want one too, but not if it's just a $500 "rental" for a few months before it becomes a boat anchor.

Join the club :) After three years, my SD DirecTV Tivo unit appears to be dying. I'm thinking about upgrading to the HD DirecTV Tivo, but can't stomach the thought of paying so much if they're just going to replace it in a year anyway. Not only that, my wife is addicted the Tivo. She won't settle for just any DVR service, it has to be Tivo.


So, is Tivo going to be an option for DirecTV customer once the MPEG4 transition occurs? I've heard that they will not aggressively market Tivo equipped DVRs, yet they will still provide them if asked.


Sorry, I know this doesn't help all that much. Just wanted to let you know someone else was in the same boat :)
