I currently have 4 HD DVRS and 2 HD receivers. I am going to replace several of them with 2 new HR34s. I was wondering which ones should I keep. I have a leased HR24-200, Owned HR24-100, HR23-700, HR22-100, H24-100, H25-100. I only need to keep one of the HR2xs an possibly one of the H2xs to go along with the new boxes. My current thinking is to keep the HR24-100 and H25-100. Any reason I should do differently?

FWIW: I'd keep the leased HR24-200, since all the others can be either sold or shelved and activated later if needed.
The best/most option "option".

I would retire the HR23. I've had all of those receivers, more or less, and HR23 was the slowest.

If your getting these installed by a tech I wouldn't deactivate any or mention that possibility until he leaves. Just to make him sweat! That's 20 tuners all together if you include the two new hr 34's. You would need two 1x16's! It'd be worth a picture. Lol

Actually I am having a tech out but for a different purpose. My H25 keeps re-booting on me every night. Signal strengths are ok, but not fabulous, so the tech will probalby peak the dish and swap out the H25. I was hoping they would just send a replacement H25 and I would swap it myself. They insisted on sending a tech. My Hr34s won't be here until after he is gone.
