    Yep, I'm continuing to update my post, I continue to find more errors in that PDF.

    While it's great if true that the HR34 will be available next week, that posted PDF might have been some early draft or from a non official DirecTV source, it just has too many errors for me to believe it's official.

    Will continue to update my previous post.

    I can personally speak for the credibility of the retailer. I have had many dealings with this person.
    I spoke to him personally when I placed my order.

    Damn, $400 is a lot to drop for a receiver you don't own. The TV/Tech geek in me says, "Shut up and order!" My frugal side says, "Save your money!"

    I'm in a similar boat, but my decision is do I get 1 HR34 now or 2 HR34s. I currently have 4 HR2xs and 2 H2xs. I want to get that down to 2 HR34s and 1 Hr24-100

    If you are past your 2-year commitment, can you qualify as a new account? Has anyone tried to take this issue through Customer Retention.

    This is not a particularly good way to keep customer loyalty.

    Have to have the account closed, and inactive for 1 to 2 years (which one depends on who you ask), to be considered a new customer. This is the one major gripe I have with Directv. Every other company out there lets you (or gives you the option to) own the item after a depreciation period, or buy it new outright.

    Is the account tied to an address or to a person? What about closing the account and having my wife start a new one?

    This is really dumb marketing. It shouldn't be necessary to jump through these hoops.

    They are wise to that and look for it.

    Agreed. I'll never understand why they don't reward long time customers so I gave up trying.

    Who knows, maybe you could call and somehow talk them into a $400, or $300, credit but your chances are very slim.

    Both are in the computer. Unless the address is flagged as a multi-residential (apt house) then either the name or the address can get you flagged. One option I havent considered is opening a NEW account while still maintaining the old account. Probably wont work, as I am sure someone has already tried that.

    That official looking pdf is also posted at another satellite forum. Maybe someone over there is the source. :confused:

    Yes, but I paid $1K for an HR10. I do own it but what is it worth now?

    Me too.

    But you can look at it this way:

    $100.00 a month over 4 months
    $50.00 a month over 8 months or
    $25.00 a month over 16 months

    ;) :D :lol:

    Could be any of their regional marketing sites from one of next trial areas.
