I'm looking at getting a HD-DVR. We are using Directv as our provider and we were informed that if we buy (which is what I was going to do) the $399 HD-DVR that in order to use it there is a fee for it ($5) or we couldn't record anything. What the hell is that about? I thought it would act like a VCR and that if it had the ability to record it would. Does anybody have one? and are you paying a $5 per month fee to use it? I sure as hell am not going to pay that kind of money for a reciever and also have to pay a extra fee every month to use the damn thing.
