DirecTV can't guarantee a particular model, if you're working directly with an installer, you may have better luck.

So, we just bought that lovely 70" Sharp and the store had offered 100$ off plus additional 150$ of from DirecTV on top on "everything for free" offer. It is my understanding that the best way to go is with All House HD DVR and 2 extra HD Receivers plus that wireless CCK. Is there anything else I am missing that I should inquire about prior to schedulued installation? Should I request any specific models DVR or Receivers? Do the DVR varries in hard drive sizes vs any additional features? Would that DVR comes with 2 additional RF remotes for 2 different floors? (I am planning to use one in my dedicated Home Theater in the basement, another one on the main floor with the Sharp - which probably can be just an IR remote, and the third one in the bedroom on the second floor?
Only one HD receiver can stream a show from a HDDVR- I would suggest you get 2 HDDVR and 1 HD receiver that way whatever room the HD receiver can watch live tv (any channel) or Stream from any HDDVR recorded playlist.

Didn't have a cable for awhile (like for the last 4 years)). Is that a pretty much going rate for the TV services nowadays?
I also was reading about HR34 that is apparently started to ship - should I wait for it another month or so? Can I request it for my installation? Any other additional perks I can ask for from them?

She said the only thing I'll see on my bill is a incremental $3 charge per month for the whole house connection. I had initially wanted to wait for the HR34 but decided to add the two HD DVR's at not charge. That would give me four total HD DVR's and with the whole house connection, shouldn't have problem of not being able to record multiple shows as one time. We'll see what receivers I get in the mail.

But, you can split recordings between multiple DVRs and watch anywhere. Really useful to make sure all network programming that doesn't repeat records.

With the CCK connection, how much "free" vod type programming, like cable, is available? Hopefully the CCK involves more than just PPV movies.
