I doubt they would install multiple receivers for a commercial account in a residence.
We (they) do.
You work for an HSP?
Carl6 I totally understand where your coming from. The reason I purchased my HR22 was for the sole reason I hate to have anything in my house that isn't truly mine. Same reason I own my cable modem. I also don't intend to sell the HR22 to make any money back, hell I still have the original ird's from when I first signed up with D* in 2004!
How did you go about purchasing the HR22?
I’m curious as to how that works.
I called D and told them I wanted to purchase a HD DVR but I wanted a specific model and the lady told me she couldn't gurantee what I would get but she could "escalate" it and someone that could gurantee a specific model would contact me in 24 hrs. The next day I received a call from a man that was beyond helpful. He placed the order, made sure the warehouse shipping it sent the right model, contacted me the day it arrived to verify I had the HR22 (I didn't even know it was at my house when he called since I was at work), told me if it was the wrong model to contact him immediately, gave me a direct 800 # and ext # to call him, and told me when I activated the receiver to call the Access Card Team to verify it as an owned unit! Everything went very smoothly and I called him after I activated it to thank him for going well out of his way for me! I sent an e-mail through the D* website the next day thanking the company as well!
How much did you pay for it?
$499 they were kind enough to waive the shipping!
If there were an additional monthly cost to lease, such as for a cable or DSL modem (which typically has a monthly cost to lease), then I fully agree with owning. When the recurring cost is the same, I consider the lease to be the better deal because it typically includes replacement in case of failure, whereas owned typically does not without extra cost insurance. Leased also typically includes some level of assurance your equipment will be upgraded without cost if there is an evolution in technology that obsoletes your current model of leased equipment.
But if you prefer to own, that is certainly your option.
