Most retailers still have some series 1 Directivo, but the new series 2 are now out. The Series 1 may be more "upgradable" at this point as far as hard drive space goes, but others may know more. Try a search in the Tivo section for more info.
Usually, current customers have to pay through the nose for equipment upgrades. Here is a little secret for you. If you want a Series 1, you can get a Directivo for $199 plus $24.95 shipping from Directv. You need to sign in, then enter "dvro" when it asks for a code. Here is a link for the new equipment upgrade page:
I've seen UTV go for $399 open box, plus shipping just today! I only paid $50. At $139 for DTivo, I'd be willing to swap one of my UTV receivers and pocket the difference. If I hate it, I can always switch back and make a few more bucks!
