Are you guys saying that if someone got an HR10 off of ebay that they could simply call up and get a new DVR upgraded for free?
I don't believe you can do that anymore...it was a scumbag move b4, now its a complete low-life move that I think they got wise to.

...and was paying D* an additional $5 a month, when he reactivated the HR10-250.
Most "loyal customers" can get an additional HD-DVR for $99 (or free with the right CSR). So, if he was reusing the HR10-250 for 20 months before upgrading again, he would have covered the $99 discounted lease price.
Is it double-dipping, yes. Is D* losing money? No.
I have 2 old receivers, I am fully aware that I pay 5/mo.
I do not like it, think the fee is crap. It is there....yeesh
