Are you talking about the HR20-250? That would
be Directv's own HD DVR without Tivo. I gather
it should be out within a few months and they
will looking to trade dishes and receivers for
the MPEG4 format.

Thank You Bob H.

Don't know if they'll be trading or not. I originally heard that they were going to allow trade ups for people who bought the HR10-250 within the last year. However, I just found out that the pricing structure for everything is changing including ownership. All boxes will now be leased and prices will be fixed for all retailers/dealers. They should be in the $89 to $99 range for an HD box and a little more for a HD DVR. Or, maybe it was around $50 for an HD box and $100 for a DVR.

Only time will tell for sure but we were told about the lease thing the other day by DirecTV.
Too many toys, too little time.
