Can anyone that has had DirecTV installed recently tell me how good the chances of receiving H®24 units are? I ordered the whole home dvr option also which I heard increases the chances. I also ordered the ICK. Any and all input is appreciated.

Thanks
Kevin

57.842% chance.

If they have it on the truck you will get it. If they don't, then you get whatever they have.

That makes sense... on the order notes the CSR put a note down saying that we want the 24s. All well, we can only hope.

Getting the whole home at the same time, you "should" get the 24s, but if they don't have them then can't give them to you. Just ask nicely if they have the 24s when they roll up, that way they grab it when they take stuff inside, but if they don't even have them with them there isn't much to do about it.
