    If purchased fron VE how does that affect D*s new leased equipment requirement? Who owns the unit ? Is it shipped with an access card and will there be any extension to subscription comittment ? Thanks for any insight.

    It is leased, and you will have a two year committment.

    I feel that way based on a telephone conversation we had years ago. While you may not hold a grudge, I certainly do.

    Wow that must have been one heck of a conversation. Unless he stole money from your account I cant imagine why you are so upset years after.

    Earl....how many TVs do you have? Just wondering because looking at your sig, you have enough DVRs to support 10+ tuners. That would be at least 5 or 6 TVs. Why do you have so many DVRs and what on earth do you have time to watch that you need 10 tuners to record everything???

    Just curious.

    My guess would be that the tuners are less important than the storage in Earl's instance. That's why I would have 10+ DVR (though I currently have only 3), but unless some miracle of God intervenes and NDS gets their software right, then mine will all be TIVO-based receivers. ;)

    Also, Robert - did you steal KC's wife or kill his dog or something? Or was it creative differences when you left his Sunshine band that is causing KC's hard feelings??? Just kidding, I don't really want or need to know. You're a great sport though and handle yourself with honor and dignity and it shows when you post. ;)

    Main Room:
    HR20 - Starting to replace the HR10-250 and partially the DSR704
    DSR704 - SD Programming Only
    HR10-250 - HD Programming Only

    The HR10-250 and DSR704 are going to be history when I get my 2nd HR20
    Then the main room will be:
    HR20 (QTY2)
    H20 for mostly sports programming when I have something going on all 4 tuners on the other two (has happened)

    Basement:
    R10 - Kids shows, Misc Wife Programming, Excerise stuff

    Spare Bedrrom
    R15 - My Sis-In-laws programming, special events that people want me to record, and that is where I test a lot of the R15 "issues posted"

    Master Bedroom
    R15 - All our evening and casual programming

    Office:
    Samsung Fliptop - I usually on use it for Sports (baseball) and background viewing when working

    Over the years, it has just been as easy to have DVR's as non-dvr receivers.

    I have a D11 receiver that I need a TV for, so that I can use it to test out some of "your" issues and stuff like that.

    IN the main room, it is a combination of storage space and conflict resolution.
    There are some nights, that I have a program on all 4 of the big 4 set to record at one time.

    Teays...
    Same here. Back when 7S went up, I had to replace some of my old receivers to get the locals, so it was just as easy to replace them with DVR's since I was buying them anyway.

    Sort of OT but not really, I noticed in the BB listing that the unit had 2 satellite tuners and 1 ATSC tuner. Does this mean it can only record 1 OTA program at any given time? Or does it have the virtual sat/ATSC tuners like the HR10? This may have been answered somewhere else, but there is a ton of info out there and it can be easy to miss it.

    The HR20 has 2 physical ATSC tuners. The whole 1 ATSC tuner looks like a typo that keeps getting repeated in other places.

    Earl,

    Understood.....I am going to be my own installer....so that is why I found it interesting and perhaps helpful....to myself....and for others that are already equipped with the AT9 dish and only need to swap coax and HDMI/opticals.

    Regards,

    Tarmack

    Hope you're not too disappointed when you find out that they aren't really shipping when they promised. Sorry bud.

    Somehow I get the impression that only a delay in shipping from Value Electronics would/could make you happy.

    I have used Value Electronics for several major purchases over the past 3 years and consider them a very reliable source...in fact with Robert's help I was able to return two defective HR10's(HDMI prob's) for new replacements from DirecTV. When they told me they did not want to old units returned....I became the happy owner of 4 HR10's and two of those became suppliers of HD television to two of my HD TV's that only had component inputs......so they are happy as hell cuz I never told them they were deprived. grin.

    It is my opinion that it is darn hard to beat the price and service of Value Electronics.....and I am in no way a "fan boy" of anything.

    You want to know why their prices are so cheap??? Check your credit card bill in 3-5 months after your purchase for some Western Union charges. That's all I'm saying.

    Let's put a cap on this thread. I don't see any reason to continue this line of discussion.

    Closing.
