    With the cheap price of DECA dongles, more and more will look to DIY...

    Whole Home DVR Service.

    That price was the original retail price, which a number of folks got installed at a lower amount up until this time.

    If you need SWM too even the $199 is a good price.

    I ordered it yesterday and they waived the $99 equipment fee. Completely installed with three replaced receivers for $49! They are installing it on the 13th.

    I'd say if you need receivers swapped $199 is a good price; a SWM/DECA "kit" can be had for sub $100 on an auction site (even for large setups...)

    I guess it depends on how many receivers you have. If you have 5 DVR's, good luck getting a SWM-16, 6 DECA adapters, and a power inserter for <$199, let alone $100.

    Thank God I got all of my stuff done before Everybody decided they wanted it. I got some ridiculous deals but seeing as I am a long time customer since 1997 I believe I deserve it for sticking with them.

    Nothin' new for me.

    I was such a new customer and a big risk that there was an extra $50 charge if I wanted it. I guess if I called now it would be $250.

    And I got mine for $75 with a Free HR24-500. Simply Amazing.

    I guess you have to be in the right place at the right time.

    About two months ago there were SWM16's on Ebay for $65. Did some work for neighbors in the last few months and bought 16 DECA with 4 P/I's for $150.

    5 DVR's wouldn't be considered an average setup, but in that case (especially if swaps are necessary) it might be wise to go with D*. Since I've been helping neighbors with DIY installs I've found the average auction site cost for a SWM/DECA upgrade to fall around $75. That's obviously not the retail price you'd pay Solidsignal, and it can be debated whether the "kits" have "fallen of a truck"; regardless, many can DIY for sub $100.

    As word continues to travel that the price has gone up, I'll likely get more and more calls about my services :D

    I was just stating the price I paid. I know that my price was before the increase. Even when the price was $149 they were giving discounts. Now the discounts will be based on the $200 starting price.

    I'm just happy I got mine at the right time.:)
