    Not that it is any of your business but I "custom" order a new car about once every 15 years. The only way I can get a car the way I want it is to have it built for me. I sit down with the computer build sheet and order it my way.

    And if something you want isn't available, what then?

    I think we all get that you REALLY want to have 2 Genies, but it simply isn't an option yet.

    Why is this any different than your "custom" order?

    GEESH, because with my custom order I can have what I want. Sorry, I just don't play well with, "The Man" making decisions for me.

    You seemed to have missed the part about the option [you wanted] not being there.

    Ah yes, "the man".
    Now where's my tinfoil.

    Guess it's time to just let this rant go on.....

    Let's just agree to disagree. We do not live in the same world so we look at things differently. Michigan, Detroit/Flint is a blue collar working class area. We have different values and think differently than Silicon Valley, California. You are a company man and signed a confidentiality agreement. I would never do that. Let's call a truce and agree to ignore each other. You are never going to change my mind and I am never going to change yours. I have the Directv equipment and setup I want with the exception of the second HR34 even if I had to get it from 3rd parties. My setup does exactly what I want even if I had to add an external drive to my HR34 to get it there.

    We can/should.
    I'm not "a company man", nor have I signed a confidentiality agreement.
    I'm a customer and pay for my service like any other customer.

    Or an idiot like myself who didn't see this thread before I pulled the trigger on a new second HR34 last Friday, $199 NIB and received it today. I have a parallel SWiM-16 and ICK setup so there is plenty of room, but sounds like I will be SOL. :(

    Got any C31 with your current HR34? A C31 can't have two servers.

    No, I have 10 other HD-DVR's (five HR24's, a HR22, a THR22, a HR21 and two HR20's). No clients, and no intention on getting clients.

    Want to cancel my SAT-A55 and replace it with the second HR34.

    After reviewing this current post, I must have a serious TV watching/recording problem and will likely need therapy soon. :)

    If you believe that, I'd wager that you haven't spent much time outside of Detroit/Flint.

    ...and what exactly is wrong with a confidentiality agreement?

    See if there is any disclaimer on the distributor's website about activating only one HR34. If not, see if the distributor you bought it from will take it back (may want to try this anyway).

    If they will not take it back, and there was no disclaimer, demand Directv either activate it, intervene with the distributor to take it back, or take it back and reimburse you. I'd ask Directv what terms and conditions apply to only allow you to activate one HR34 and if there is no disclaimer from the distributor, why are they allowing their distributors to sell them without a disclaimer.

    Sorry, you have it completely wrong. I am the customer and it is my money. The customer is ALWAYS right. I love my Directv but you dyed in the wool company fan boys really get to me.

    Try that argument next time you're on an airplane, and you don't get what you want, and let us know how that goes.;)

    Another name for that is selling your soul to the company. I see it as me vs. the company.

    I haven't been on a plane in 20 years and probably won't be the rest of my life. I haven't any reason to fly. I don't know anybody outside of my state and have everything I need right here in Michigan. But as to your statement. When I did fly I just told the travel agency my requirements and it was up to then to find them for me if they wanted to make the sale.

    I guess with my 3 earned college degrees and 31 years of teaching experience I wasn't smart enough to get his point.

    I take offense to your reply. Why are you acting "all mighty"? Just because someone questions Directv's polices doesn't make them childish. I was taught, and always taught my students, to question everything and never, ever accept the "authority" as the answer.

    I really like this forum but I really hate how some have set themselves up as the unquestioned authority and how others think Directv can do no wrong. Improvement comes through criticism and questioning.

    I am done replying to this thread now. It is a waste of time replying to the closed minded.
