HYT empowerments I've received involve Tantric Vows and also practice commitments.
Often times yes, but not always. The Nyingmas tend towards less of that kind of stuff, for example, unless one is a pretty serious practitioner. I've had plenty of Kagyu HYT that don't have practice commitments or samaya as well.

Yes, thanks for clarifying that - I was being a bit self-focused there. ;)

The ones I have taken have commitments and samaya, others vary. For example, Heruka and Vajrayogini initiations, IMHO, should be for serious practitioners who are willing to dedicate a considerable amount of time to practice. 

I'm looking for a Chod initiation and descriptions I've seen so far certainly have no practice commitments  - guess they 'cut them out'! LOL :).  Awful pun..........
