According to their website, the unit should be out in Q1. Now I just wonder how much they plan on gauging me.

I guess this means that I need a HDTV now.

I think lots of people are consumed in this thread right now.

The real question for me is the implication that these are SA features only. It will be interesting to see if DirecTV supports this stuff. I haven't researched it but I would assume they will not.

I bought Tivo #21 for $1000 when they first came out, it was a whopping 30gb. :D

PVRblog is saying the box could be between $699 and $899 starting out depending on size and manufacturer. That is about what I expected.

DirecTV is currently running a deal for HD receivers for $99 similar to the one they are running for regular DirecTivo receivers.

I'll wait until DirecTV start broadcasting more HD channels (locals too) before I adopt a HD DirecTivo. I'm enjoying my regular DirecTivo just fine.
