Thanks again guys for all your help.

I'm probably going to go ahead with two HR24's and one H24....I'll either get the 2nd HR24 from DirectTV or someplace like overstock.com.

I'll probably wait a month or two. Looks like I have 5 months left on my Dish contract and they will charge me $10 a month for each remaining month. I tried to get DirectTV to help me with that cancellation fee, but they said they couldn't.

Since it looks like the current promotions go until 7/15, I'll sit tight for a bit.

Thanks again.

Rich


Looks like you have all your ducks in a row Rich. You are coming into a great time with DirecTV, and if you have any further questions you know where to come.

and again we have a nonsense posting derailing the question being asked. :nono:

Are either one or both of the statements that I made incorrect?

The nonsense is that nearly 50% of the recent post activity for the last few days on DBSTalk.com seems to be different threads discussing implementation of "Whole-Home DVR service" from DIRECTV. Apparently the answers offered thus far have not been getting the job done.

OK, enough. Please get back to topic or this thread will be closed. If you feel you have nothing to add to the topic, please do not post.

Yes.

Stick to services you subscribe to. As usual, your information is just "right enough" to get people confused.

a long time ago like 5+ years DTV had the MRR (multi room receiver) that was basically like the dish network setup. you could run a second tv off of coax and use a mouse like device called a dongle connected in line to change the channel. the only bad thing was that the second TV had to be on the cable setting of the TV's antenna input. Techs had a hard time actually programming the TV and educating the customers to this effect, really it just worked on ch's 14-125. maybe if the OP wanted to do some hunting he could find one
