I apologize if this post asks about too many disparate topics. Approaching three years as uncommitted Premier/NFL ST/HDEP/HD/WHDVR(u) subscribers, our current setup is an HR20 (1 TB from WeaKnees) and an HR21 (stock), both leased, with a "white label" SWM (also from WK) and WH/VOD networking accomplished through our own router and switch, NO DECA. Tomorrow (Monday the 14th), two 2 TB HR24's and two 1x2 splitters will arrive from WK. We close on our new house on Monday the 28th, and we arrive there permanently the following weekend, with movers showing up sometime the week after that. The goal is to transfer service seamlessly with no interruption in our recordings, minimal interior work by the installer, and maximum possible savings from Movers Connection, etc. :coolglass So, what I plan to do is call D* tomorrow to set up the move, activate the two new DVR's once any promos/discounts are reflected on line, and hopefully be scheduled for the morning of the 28th, when I will be at the new house (closing will have been postdated) with two of the DVR's, maybe the SWM & PI, blue couplers, some RG-6Q, compression connectors and tools, an UPS, and a small monitor (to get as much done inside as I can before the installer arrives). This begs the following questions: What is the current Movers Connection promo, and are there any other discounts we should hope to get in the process? Having read some discussions about ownage vs. lease, is there any downside to owning upgraded DVR's from WK when you have the Protection Plan? Does a DVR have to be characterized as owned before/when it is activated? I just activated the HR20 right after we first subscribed, thinking we could "own" it later on if the need arose. Now with two more coming tomorrow... Is the installer going to say, "Where are your other two DVR's? I can't finish the job until all the gear on your account is up and running..." If I can't leave at least one at the old house (in another state) until the install is completed, some recordings will be missed, which pretty much obviates the whole trip. If I'm good to go with half the DVR's at install, do I have to bring my SWM and even network switch to satisfy the installer that I have what I will ultimately need for four DVR's and WH (even though presently "unsupported")? I would rather just have the dish mounted and aligned, the four cables from it run to where I need them in basement, and the rest left to me, once signal strengths are verified on screen, of course. That is, unless they want to drop a green-label SWM-16 on us, as the "8" will be maxed out once we get moved in. Otherwise, I can't have a truck full of SWiMLine's show up, leaving us needing an LNB/arm/whatever refit should we want to add just one more tuner. Oh, do SWM's slow down tuning? If so, would a new green-label SWM tune faster than our c. 2008 model? Being that our new neighbor has a dish on the side of their house so near the corner that it is basically in our front yard :nono2: (see attachment; birds seem to be at about our 10, if you're facing the street), I don't think there will be any HOA issues, but if our dish just needs to be on the roof, is that going to cost extra? Ideally I'd like to get D* to promise to cover any such costs ahead of time; has that ever happened? :lol: Maybe I should bring some cash... I understand the importance of making sure that D* does not change the address on our account until the day of install, lest we lose the locals for two full weeks; anyone from the 'Springs that can tell me if CW/KXTU-57 is in HD yet, and if not, is it in HD OTA? I think that covers it. Lastly, if you're interested in a great deal on new, 2 TB HR24's from WK, check out /black-friday.php?code=228575.
