Here's what I've got currently: HR22 H21 Series 2 DirecTivo Series 1 DirecTivo Here's what I'd like to have: HR24* HR24* HR22 (existing) H21 (existing) The Costco promotion can you give you two HD-DVRs for $99 total, and then they give you a $180 Costco Cash card. Since I'm out of contract, do you think retentions will allow me to just add the two new HD-DVRs at no charge, as well as the free installation to support MRV? I know it's not a complete apples-to-apples comparison. My argument is that a new customer can get two HD-DVRs for -$81, in effect, so why not give a long-time customer (9 years) two HD-DVRs for $0? As for the monthly rate, the current new customer promotion will give me the channels I want for $72 for the first year, and $103 after. Is retentions likely to match this, as well? Finally, I was just talking with a DirecTV salesman at Best Buy. He told me that even if you have multiple HD-DVR's in the home, it's only possible to record a total of two shows at once in the whole home. He also said that you could record two live shows and watch a third live show at the same time on one DVR. Is any of this true? I thought that three HD-DVRs would mean a total of 6 shows recorded at once, that each HD-DVR can only access two live feeds at a time, and that you can record two live shows and watch a third previously-recorded show at once. I'm pretty sure he didn't know what he was talking about--his selling points were that cable companies give customers refurbished receivers but DirecTV doesn't, and that he could *guarantee* that DirecTV would ship me a HR24. *I know that there's no way to guarantee HR24s, but obviously I'm hoping for them.
