    Installation of the AT9 is supposed to come with the appropriate multiswitch if you require it. If your installer tries to charge you for this, complain to D*.

    I don't see that. I'm an existing customer.

    Here is the email from valueelectronics.

    For existing customer would the HR20 come with the AT9 dish and installation? Also I have 5 receivers in my home hooked up to a Terk multiswitch. Would I have to purchase an additional multiswitch or would that come with installation?

    Thanks for the email. Yes if you purchase the HR20 from us we can get DIRECTV to give you the AT9 dish, new 6x8 switch and installion.

    After you receive the HR20 DIRECTV can schedule the install.

    Regards,

    I don't see anything on the D* website for ordering the HR20, just the HR10.

    just click the order button (even though you see HR10 in picture) eventually you'll get to the page that will display the HR20

    Where exactly do you see this? I see no pages that specifically have "HR20" on them or "HD DVR Plus". All I see is "HD DVR".

    It shows HR10 scroll down and hit order now then it will ask you to sign on to continue once you are signed it will ask you to enter a promotion code, I just select continue after that the HR20 is the third option down.

    I got that far before too, but no where during the process of ordering or in the summary does it say HR20 or HD Plus DVR. Granted it does include installation of the AT9, so it may be the HR20, but I still see no conclusive evidence on their site that it is the HR20. Are you seeing something different in your browser?

    That's definitely the HR10-250. I don't know why you keep thinking it's the HR20-700.

    Until I see it say "HD Plus DVR" I'm not trusting it :p

    Although that summary does sound in line with the HR20.

    It does, but it's the same summary they've always used for the HR10. You know that they'll be pimping the extra features of the HR20 when it's available.

    How definitely?

    Why I think its HR20 it does not mention TiVo. I just got the Tivo (H10) for free, are they still selling these for 399? was told current LA area HR20's or going for 399.

    I just thought of something else. Because it doesn't mention Tivo, they may just be sending out whatever DVR is available. If someone from LA orders that item, they'll send them an HR20. But if someone outside of LA orders, they'll send them an HR10.
