Upgrading to MRV...What To Expect/Ask For?
Posted 10 November 2010 - 09:48 AM
I am planning on moving the R15-100 in place of the D10, and adding a new HD DVR. I'd also like to add multi-room viewing (I understand that would only work between the HD receivers). I currently have only one input to the HR21-100.
I understand that I will be re-upping for another 2 years when I make these changes. If I am going to make the change - can I ensure I also get upgraded to SWM for the HR21 location - since I only have one line at that location? Would the HR21 also need to be upgraded? What should I expect in terms of cost?
Thanks for any advice - I appreciate it!

Your cost for the upgrade, including the new receiver, should be no more than about $398 ($199 for the Whole Home and $199 for the HD-DVR). Depending on your account history, you may be able to get some of those fees reduced.
Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.
