My current setup is split between two dishes. Dish1 serves my family room HR21 (where most TV is watched) and my 94yr old mom's granny flat/guest house about 100' away from the main house (really old Sony SAT-A2 std def receiver). Dish2 is right outside my bedroom and serves an HR21 and HR23 (bedroom and retreat). My mom's 20 year old Sony TV finally died and I'm getting her a 50" LCD to replace it. So, it's time to upgrade her receiver to HD. Last night I ordered an upgraded receiver from DTV. The best deal I could get out of them was a free upgrade but I have to pay shipping/handling ($21 with tax) and commit to 24 more months. I was informed that I am eligible for a free whole home DVR upgrade. I refused because my split dish setup works for me and it would be complicated to get cables between them. Now, I'm having second thoughts ... should I go for it and just use the whole home setup for my family room/granny flat and leave the old setup in my bedroom (it has its own dish)? If I understand it correctly, I would be getting a new dish and a new DVR with 5 tuners. Could I just keep the HR21 and move it to the granny flat? I have RG6 running to the granny flat (about 100') which connects to about 50' of RG59 in the walls to get to the TV. Would that still work with this new hardware? Is it correct that the whole-home DVR service is just $3/mo extra (I already have the DVR package). Or, would it be better to just install the upgraded receiver and be done with it? Short term, I wouldn't care about sharing content between the two DVRs. But long term, who knows? Thanks for any feedback.
