I am getting my Hr34-700 Friday. There is no installer coming. A couple of questions:
What the best way to activate it. Just call in or ask for Case Management?

I bought it at USADigitalHD. Should I expect or ask for any rebates or discounts?
Is that the proper term?

TIA for your help.

Just call in, but don't expect any rebates or discounts.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

I agree, just call the regular number and tell them you're activating a new receiver. My rep didn't even ask for the model type -- just the receiver ID and last four of the card -- and then only asked if it was an addition or replacement.

Got couple of Q for you. The HR34 will bring you up to how many tuners in your service? Is your service setup for SWM?

Did you look into the cost to buy thru D directly before buying through the company you did?

I will be getting a HR34 soon and will start looking into where to buy shortly.

Right now, for existing customers you cannot obtain an hr 34 from directv. I got mine from IUSADigitalHD also (they had stock and Value Electronics and Solid Signal didn't). Price is the same from any of them. USADIGITALHD was good to deal with; had I not missed out on the preorder I would have gotten from VE.

Find an independent retailer with stock on hand, if you can.
