I called in to DirecTV about the SD Tivo constant reboot problem and in the course of discussion was told that the price of the HR34 has been reduced to $299. I was offered $50 off the price of either an HR34 or a standard HD DVR. This was the first I had heard of a price drop on the HR34.

In the end, I was offered the HR34 for $249, $10 off my bill for 12 months and free installation (which I accepted).

Yeah, DIRECTV lowered the price about a month ago when they started offering them to customers for free.

The promotion is that new customers are offered an HR34 "Genie" for free.

Existing customer's do not qualify for this offer; however you can call and see what if anything they can do to reduce or eliminate any charges for it based on your individual account. This is pretty much Russian roulette as far as what CSR's will offer....
