I would imagine they have to get ready for the HDTivo's coming out in 1Q04. I don't see in that ad where it say's $99. It say's:

Which meens you get $100 and a standard receiver,so that would meen that the Directivo would be between $150 and $200.

I posted not that long ago that this would be a good idea and now its already a reality. I wonder if Dish Network will follow through with a similar promotion as well, or will they seeing that their DVR is free anyways?

In fact, if you're sure you want the Tivo, I don't see big advantage in this promotion. New subscribers can purchase Tivo systems for less than $100, and existing ones can take advantage of the FFDVR code that gives you a Tivo for $99 + s/h. For example, my package was a 3-LNB antenna + 1 Tivo + 1 Director for around $80 with free shipping after rebate, and then I bought an extra Tivo with the FFDVR code. Can't beat this, considering that Tivos are better IMO than Dish's because they have 2 tuners instead of 1 (ok, granted Dish has a 2-tuner unit, but at $500 would you buy it?). This was the very best deal I found around for new subscriber for a Directv Tivo system. If you're considering Directv and are interested, PM me and I'd be glad to give you the link from where I bought.

I am considering Direct Tv or staying with E* and buying a 921. I have a dish on the roof of my motorhome that I live in. From the Forum info I am leaning toward the 4 tuner HD with Tivo versus the 921. Scott, would that be my best choice since Direct Tv's Top receiver seems to have less bugs and more features.
