so $135+ tax + NC Tax on 100.00 good deal since i am shaving off $12 for box fees on account too. I figured they took good care of me, but I had questions about the install fee, also it appears with new policy only the name of the account holder can complete the deal, so i had to interupt wife at busy work to listen to about 5 minutes of disclosure on contract. What ever happened to spousal approval. I have been dealing with directv, and retention exclusively for about 12 years or so. I make those tech decisions. They said it was a new policy at directv. Ill be glad to get rid of some HR20s to get new problems with HR34 im sure. , I had buy my only hr24 because i was sick and tired of the old boxes, and their built in electric heaters. that was last upgrade, bought HR24 overstock for 180.00 and got 180 credit on bill to guarantee i had at least one modern dvr on my account. Up until 5 months ago, you couldnt pry HR20 out of my hands because of the OTA tuners. Finally our DMA got HD local in locals though. Good stuff and thanks for the reply. Looking forward to HR34 an a few less direct boxes in the media room.
