My deal: D* called me once a month for the past 6 months. Deal keeps getting better and better. Last offer was non-DVR for free, so I asked about DVR. First it was $199, then $99, then I pay for shipping ($20) and as it turns out tax ($20). So mine was $40. The only additional charge is the DVR fee, it looks like the lease fee gets added, and credited each month, though I have yet to see a new bill since the install. Since I had OTA, and lost it with the HR21, I managed the AM21 for $27 (half off). MikeW: But if you sell them, even for a loss, at least you can earn interest on the money... I doubt those boxes will increase in value, and they only thing you'll collect with them is dust... Unless you have future plans.
