On another note, $50 for a dual tuner ATSC tuner(albeit it can only be used attached to a D* HD unit), is really pretty cheap to begin with....most other dual tuner setups I have seen are way more than $50. Take for example the HDHOMErun unit, its like $150...[/url]
Sure, but that's hardly an apples to apples comparison. That's a dual tuner ATSC and QAM unit, which can be networked and shared by all of your PCs. They are really nice units. You can get single tuner ATSC usb tuners for as little as $25, so you could easily attach two of those to a PC for $50.
But yeah, the AM21s are owned, not leased, so I'd shop ebay if you wanted to save money.

When I call I always at the prompt "What is your reason for calling" I say cancel service, so I can bypass the tier 1 csr's.
When the guy answered I said I need a tuner for my HR21. He never said a price. He set let check on that, came back and said it will ship out free of charge you'll have in 3 days.

my reason was that they do not offer all of my locals yet - half are not even carried in SD and they are the ones that installed my antennae initially to lure me to D* from cable that carried locals
