    SD-DVR to HD-DVR upgrade

    I called a couple weeks ago to inquire about upgrading an R-15 to an HD-DVR. I was quoted $199 + shipping. Is that the going rate these days, or do I have any shots at better deals? I have 3 HD-DVRs already - not sure if that makes a difference or not (and I got two of those for free).

    WHEN will Voom shut down?

    Sorry if I missed this information in another thread... Do we know yet just when service will be shut off? In saying "on April 30" does that mean at 12:01 am on Saturday, service will be shut off? Or will we have service all day Saturday, and it will be shut off Saturday night? I am...

    Dish DVR

    Dish DVR vs. Tivo? (I edited the title to make it more specific than the original) We've had stand-alone Tivo for over a year. I'm seriously considering the 942/625 combo with Dish. Can anyone give a comparison between the Dish DVR and Tivo? What are the major differences? I'm sure...
