As DirecTV customer service can't answer this question, I thought I'd ask you guys. I recently wanted to add an additional HD DVR to my Whole Home DVR Network. I was actually replacing a standard definition receiver in the spare bedroom with an HD DVR. Obviously, my preferred choice would have been an HR24 DVR, because they have an onboard DECA adapter, but I would have been fine with an older model DVR, if D* would send me a DECA adapter with it which they are welcome to charge me for. The CSR told me that it was really 'pot luck' as to what I would get, and that they couldn't add a DECA adapter with the order? So the D* business model for leasing additional receivers for MRV, is that you'll only know if you need to order a DECA adapter when you open the box and see what's in there? I went straight to Solid Digital and ordered an HR24-500. It arrived two days later, and it was activated and working perfectly on my Network about ten minutes after I took it out of the box. There are many things I really like about D*, but this method of selling leased receivers/DVRs seems crazy. Why not say 'if you want the latest model DVR, it will cost you $199, and if you are happy with an older model, it will cost you $99, and you can also order a DECA adapter for $20? Presumably D* earns nicely off Solid Digital anyway, but why create an environment where you are effectively telling your customer to go to an authorized dealer?
