so an acccurate statement, but meaningless in the US till they offer it.

True...but then so are all the inferences of DirecTV even offering a Sky+ unit in the US just because they have developed the software in the UK. In the UK there is no other integrated PVR/IRD unit, and TiVo struggled to maintain distribution. Different markets, different dynamics - on both sides of the equation.

4 Hughes DirecTiVos:
100 GB GXCEBOTD in the playroom
100 GB HDVR2 in the kitchen
140 GB GXCEBOTD in the bedroom
240 GB GXCEBOTD in the family room
