    Folks, After 2 years of dealing with the other guys and getting fed up with the cable bill and cable service in Idaho, I jumped the ship and came back to DirectV through qwest. I chose the Ultimate package and got free HD for life. My Qwest bundle will be lower than the cable package that I got rid of. $112 a month versus 176.83. Plus I miss NASCAR Hotpass(Go Jr.). and NFL Network and not having ESPNU in HD (Go Boise State Broncos) and the other channels that CableOne does not have in HD.

    Welcome back, and make sure you read up on the Whole Home DVR upgrade, it's a pretty sweet deal, at least for a lot of us.

    Actually the Qwest representative sold me a wireless router that will hook up to my DVR and control all the other HD receivers in the house for $25 bucks. I will only be paying 7 bucks for DVR service. And that Free HD for life deal is much more sweeter than the whole house DVR upgrade at least for me.

    You can have both, you know.:)

    I got a deeply discounted WHDVR install, and the 10/mo off for 24 months (existing customer), and a friend just did the WHDVR upgrade and he got the 10/mo off as well. I guess what I'm trying to say is the two deals aren't mutually exclusive. If you're happy with wireless MRV, then don't bother...but there is a world of difference between DECA and wireless for MRV.

    +1 The DECA runs even better than ethernet. (DVR to H2x)

    But you do realize that you STILL have to pay the $3 for MRV, EVEN using the ethernet connections on the receivers. DirecTV shut that freebie off a couple months ago...you'll have to get it activated per the instructions on the 2nd post of this link.

    Welcome back.

    I also suggest that you consider the Whole Home and/or Internet Connection Kit. The multiroom experience is, IMO, much better using SWiM connections and if you do the Internet connection (preferably to a wired ethernet port on your modem) your streaming experience will be quite good.

    Regardless, welcome back.

    I agree the WHDVR upgrade is awesome and shouldn't be overlooked. Yes it's $3.00/Month but well worth it.
