    And this is different from any other retailer [like solid signal], how? :confused:
    BTW: that is only for new customers, where any retailer would sell 24s to any customer.

    From DirecTV, this may be true more than a retailer, "but" if you're going with the whole home DVR service, "the truck" tends to have more 24s than if you don't have the service "as part of your new customer" install.
    Retailers know there stock and as such are able to guarantee what they're selling.

    Weaknees is merely doing a good job advertising themselves.
    As I read through that link, the footnotes didn't show anything more than DirecTV offers, but since they are a retailer, they're promoting their ability to offer "new" receivers.
    I think all the refurbished hardware does have to go through the DirecTV system, as they're the ones that contract for the refurbishing of the receivers.

    I just got a new HR24-500 through Solid Signal. Free shipping and delivered two days after I ordered it. Very good experience. :)

    I guess they get enough posts like this that they don't need to do the promoting Weekness is doing. :lol:

    Actually, reading the fine print, it looks like you can get 3 HD-DVR's for free. I don't think DirecTV's normal promos offer that big of a discount. They also offer an additional $100 credit if you sign up for WHDVR.

    Although I still love how Weaknees thinks that the R23 actually exists...
