There were several posts related toTV2 fee & credit prior to the rumor you quoted that didn't say "receiver" but only talked about (# Duos on account - # Duos not connected - 1) If that is -1 (not a single Duo connected), you are charged the fee If it is zero (like 1st Duo doesn't have to be connected, but the others are), no fee charged. If positive, 6 month credits. I've no idea if that was simplifying it to a formula, or something DISH would distribute to explain "simplification". In any event, it seemed (my interpretation at least) that it wouldn't add a fee for every Duo not connected, but rather a single fee for not having at least "all but one" connected. I've no idea what the use of "receivers connected" might mean for non-Duos but ASSUME the quote only applies to Duos.
