    DIRECTV and TiVo to Launch New HD DIRECTV DVR with TiVo Service - BroadcastNewsroom

    EL SEGUNDO and ALVISO, Calif., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DIRECTV, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTV), the nation's leading satellite television service provider, and TiVo Inc. (Nasdaq: TIVO), the creator of and a leader in television services for digital video recorders (DVR), announced today that they have extended their current agreement, which includes the development, marketing and distribution of a new HD DIRECTV DVR featuring the TiVo(R) service, as well as the extension of mutual intellectual property arrangements.

    Under the terms of the non-exclusive arrangement, DIRECTV and TiVo will work together to develop a version of the TiVo(R) service for DIRECTV's broadband-enabled HD DVR platform.

    I saw that press release last night. Today, I am signing up to switch back to DirectTV. I hope I can get on the TIVO when it comes back, i.e. not too expensive to upgrade.

    Don't count on it, it's horrible. I haven't read the article yet, but if you can get it and swap for Tivo when it comes out, you'll be fine. But if they say you have to pay to switch it out, then wait.

    My HR-20 is great. I've a 1TB eSATA drive hooked up and it runs like a champ.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the HR-20/21s will allow the Tivo software to be uploaded.

    I hope so, I cant stand the fact that I cant watch two channels at one time and rewind them when I switch back and forth.

    No PIP on the DTV DVR is ridiculous.
