DTV conspiracy to force R15 upgrade

Yesterday, after returning from vacation, our DirecTivo had the "Almost done. Just a few more minutes..." screen up, as when the unit reboots. Never done that randomly before. So I rebooted a few times, each time it gets stuck on this screen (and several hours, as I left it that way last night).

Called DirecTV tech support this morning & they said I need a new unit. Hmmm...

So the only unit I can buy now (unless I pay $$$) is the R15, non-Tivo unit.

I'm just wondering, and the evidence is purely circumstantial, if DTV is pushing this "bug" onto Tivo units to force us Tivo holdouts to buy their new R15 units. And giving a boost in new DVR hardware sales to prove to Wall Street their move to dump Tivo is founded ("Oh look, all these Tivo users are upgrading to R15's, thus proving it must be better!"). Hmmmm......

Or my unit is broken & needs to be replaced.
