    Owning a receiver is convenient because if you decide to deactivate then of course you don't have to return it (because its yours obviously) and don't have to pay upfront cost for another receiver everytime you decide to activate again, Is an advantage for guest rooms and frequent movers, And if you cancel account with dues paid, then you can sell it, and another advantage would be if you have another leased receiver, and want to cancel account under contract, You pay the ETF then sell your owned receiver to offset the cost.

    Another advantage for owning is activating on somebody else's account (With his authorization of course) So it's not tied to only one account.

    This..."No one owns the HR34 unless you paid the steep price for it $600 or $700..."

    That's account stacking and against TOS.

    Not unless you cancel your own account and activate on someone else's. And do Directv sells HR34's? and for how much if they do?

    So you're telling me that only Directv employees can own them and everybody else can lease only?

    Not sure what you mean here.
    An owned receiver can be activated on another account, if the old account is current and paid in full, but the receiver needs a new access card for the other account.

    That's exactly what I meant to say, it's just I didn't explain myself in detail.

    I do not know what you mean by if they sell them as the HR34 is a Genie unit, do you mean own? However the HR34 is 399.00 to lease
    SolidSignal is doing a deal where you can get them for 349 leased

    Ain't it $399 to lease at least that's what I was quoted. So I expect I'll be more to own. Or it could be that I'm on legacy non-SWM.

    It's still a leased unit for $349 from Solid Signal.

    From Solid Signal's page on the HR34: As of 3/1/06 DIRECTV® now requires a 24 month commitment and all equipment must be returned to DIRECTV® if customer cancels service with DIRECTV®

    You don't own it. DirecTV does and they want it back if you stop doing business with them.
