Off topic but, TalladegaTommy, what did you think of the incident between Harvick and Logano on Sunday? Who was at fault Joey or Kevin? :rolleyes:

If i were DTV i 'd be more concerned with this rain fade issue. Here in the chicagoland area everytime WE GET A SPRINKLE OF RAIN the picture is searching for signal. If this happens to me during a nascar event i will drop them like a three foot putt.

No. With everyone else in this thread wanting one, too, they ran out! :nono2:

It's been worth it, though. This had to be my favorite post of the past few days. Who knew four little words could derail a thread so thoroughly? :D

Neither really, it was a racing incident, although it looked like the kid came down the track a little, it happens...

I called DIRECTV a few days ago and complained that my HR20’s are too slow. They overnighted two new HR24s for free. Got them this morning. I cannot beleive how fast these are! I also got ST free for the next three years. Thanks DIRECTV! You rule.































Just joking :D

Just a note on box rental fees.

Here in my local area it is something like this for Charter Cable:

Standard Box: $5
HD Box: $10
DVR Box (I think they only have HD DVR): $15

So if you sign a new two year contract and pay up front $200 and then only $5 a month for an HR24 you actually come out $40 ahead over if DTV had this pricing model.

Now, having said that, it would be nice if DTV offered some different pricing models. i.e. new receiver for 4 installments of $50 or whatever.
