Just got off the phone, I have 2 HR20's already. They wanted 149 for another HDDVR, 49 for another HD receiver, 99 fee, plus another 49 for the installation. I politely declined. I guess I misunderstood a lot of stuff.
I never thought it would be that much!

$99 & $49 are for the DECA/MRV networking upgrade.
Adding receivers would be in addition, but swapping out like for like receivers to work with SWiM, is part of the upgrade package price.

From what I've read, it seems since I already have the HR20's, I am not really eligible for the receiver swap. Am I correct in that? And since I already have the 2 HR20's, I could get by with just 2 more Hxx HD receivers and forget adding another HDDVR to get coverage in all 4 rooms?.

Thanks for the help

The HR20s don't need swapping.
If you want to add two more locations to view MRV, then you need to add two clients [H21/23/24]. there would come with the 2-year commitment, but since they aren't DVRs, you can get some good/cheap deals for them
All other receiver would be changed to work with SWiM.

No deals for me to add 2 Hxx receivers and use my current 2 HR20's.
99 + 49 + 49(Hxx) + 99(Hxx) = about 300 bucks up front. Not worth it for me at this point.

At least you know what it would cost now for MRV at four locations.
