    And you're sure you are getting the HR20? I thought the first month or so was only LA?

    Also, what are you going to end up paying for it?

    I was trying to see if ShoNuff who live in Fremont really was getting the HR20. I guess I'll have to wait until next week to see if he gets one installed or not. That is if he responds to this forum...:)

    It would probably be prudent to wait at least until there are a few SoCal installs in place before speculating about wider release.

    I am also interested if anyone in the bay area has heard anything regarding the release timeframe of the HR20. When I talked with Ironwood last week, they said they didn't have any HR20s in stock yet.

    When I sign onto D*'s website on my account it shows the HR20 and has it as a 99 dollar upgrade option (I did not order yet) but called CSR and could not even order via them yet :confused:

    She says there is no swap offer and what they are doing for LA is 399.

    Just another game of roulette.

    Just called customer service and ordered the HR20 for $21.60 $19.95 plus tax, install scheduled for August 28th

    The rep first told me my cost would be $399.00. I explained to her that I paid 1,000 for my HR10 and was told that I would receive the HR20 for just shipping and handling. She put me on hold, and came back with 299.00 telling me I was receiving a "special rebate". I mentioned again that I paid 1,000 for the HR10 and was told since D* changed their format to MPG4 that I would receive the “replacement” DVR for Shipping and Handling only. I was once again placed on hold and she came back with the HR20 for $19.95, including a new dish and installation.

    Richard A - The CSR I talked to checked my zip and said that its "very close" to being available outside the LA, but is still not available.

    She wanted to talk prices, etc. - which I cut her off b/c I didn't want to start negotiating about the lease upgrade if she wasn't able to place an order.

    Did you talk to a specific dept? Retention?

    Called Ironwood Communications yesterday to see if they had or knew when they would have the HR20's. I was told they currently have NO HD boxes they have no date when the HR20 will arrive but their next shipment is due on the 31st they 'hope' the HR20 is on that shipment but couldnt give any details.
