So apparently you failed to read all the earlier posts that shared the fact that other providers so exactly the same thing, but chose to simply vent and rant instead.
I've had Directv for 5 years. I HATE the fact you can't request the receiver you want to order from them and think it is RETARDED. I love the people who say you get what you get. Using that logic, you coud give me an old Directv tivo.
It's a stupid policy/way to run a business. Why not tiered pricing on the leases or some other way to give customers more freedom of choice?
You also chose not to read the previous posts which indicated you could, in fact, get the unit you requested from SolidSignal or another vendor.
These hit and run posts boggle the mind.
