I have been with DirectTv for 7 years now. I have had the protection plan for about 5 years. I just got an e-mail that I can get a free upgrade (aside from the typical DVR monthly fee) if I accept a new 24 month lease agreement. I only have one HR24-500 for the house and would really like to get the HR34 so I can have the PIP for sports programming. What I am unsure about is what else would I need to get the PIP to work with the HR34? To fill you in, I do have 2 lines that run into my DVR from the satellite dish. I am thinking I would need to purchase an additional piece of equipment, but I am not 100% sure on this. Also, if I agree to do this and I need the additional piece of equipment to get the PIP on the HR34 to work, is this something I can easily do myself or will a tech need to come out and do it? Thanks in advance for all replies!
