I think that there would be two reasons I will wait. This would be for a Directv TV HDTivo unit.
#1 To see how the new units shake out, let you guys tell me what's going on under the hood.
#2 I will need a new dish and to run more cables from that dish, so the ideal thing would be a combo deal, dish with receiver. Likely? Probably not, but it would be nice...
#1 I would think that a year after they were first announced, and the fact that they are an incremental product, there shouldn't be too much to "shake out".
#2 Do what I, and many others have done, get the standard HD retension package for $99. For me, I needed to get another cable run (which would have cost more than $99), since you can't stack a multi-sat signal. I will be able to ebay the HD reciever when the HDTivo, and use the money to offset the purchase..
