A friend of mine got one of the free R-15's thru the DVR4u promotion I mentioned in another forum here. He decided after only two weeks he didnt like it and wanted to return it before the 30 days trial period was up so he was not stuck with an extra 2 year commitment for something he didnt want to keep. He called DirecTV to return it and they said no problem, they would FedX a return kit but he was still committed for 2 more years. They told him even though you have 30 days to decide if you like the new receiver, once its installed, you have the additional 2 year commitment even if you return it the next day. I called myself last night twice and talked to 2 CSR's and two supervisors as I wanted to see what was going on as I recommended he get the R-15 for free and was told the same thing. They all told me that you have 30 days to decide if you like any new receiver and to return it BUT the commitment stays once it is installed. This doesn't make any sense as these are leased receivers and you can return them at any time anyways.
