I hope this is the right place for this question. Mods feel free to move it if not. I am considering purchasing the AM21 off-air tuner and just wanted to know if this will extend my committment period. Thanks for any help.

No because your are buying it, not leasing it.

I'm not sure, but I don't think so. It is an outright purchase, not a lease, and has to be used with an HD DVR already active on your account.

The AM21 does not need to be activated, so there should be no worry about commitment.

House #1:
HR20-700 -> LG 42LH40 LCD (HDMI)
HR23-700, AM21N -> Slingbox Solo (component)
and AverTV HD DVR C027 card on Lenovo desktop (HDMI)
HR23-700, AM21 -> Samsung HL-R4266W (HDMI)
AU9 SWM5

House #2:
HR34-700 ->
Insignia NS-55L260A13 Rev E (HDMI)
C31-700 -> Sansui SLED1980E (HDMI)
AU9 SWM5

More details are available here.

I know it has been said but I thought I'd add a qualified, no!:lol:
It is an OWNED piece of equipment and there is no service agreement attached.
