Personally, i don't see what the big "hype" over the HR-34 is.... Other than it being RVU capable and the fact its new, the 2 HR-24's i now have pretty much are the same thing minus one tuner to record. I just dunno if not having the latest and greatest would be enough to cancel service for me.. :lol:

That's what I finally decided. I want unified management of recordings, which is the sole reason I would have for needing an HR34 to replace the 2 HR24s that I have on my main TV. And while I still want that, I don't figure it is worth any actual money to get.

What makes it nice is... with a HR34 i would have the kids clogging up every bite of free space with cartoons (mainly every episode of spongebob aired in the universe:grin:) with 2 HR24's myself and the wife have ours upstairs to record are shows, never again to have them cleared because its full and the kids have theres downstairs to load all there junk.. when its full then it either delete stuff or nothing else...

Also, i don't use RVU clients nor do i ever plan to so spending $350 bucks on the newest DVR in our case is plain silly!

When my first 2 year contract was up, I started shopping around comparing what Dish could offer compared to my current DTV setup. The biggest reason I was looking is I needed to add an additional HD receiver and swap out a SD receiver for a HD receiver. The end result is a total of 5 receivers. With this number of receivers neither the Hopper nor the Genie seemed to fit the bill.

While I probably could have "fought" for a better deal from DTV, I settled on 2 HR25s for an OOP cost of $198 and an additional programming discount of $10 for 12 months. This solved my needs and I didn't have to switch [that would have been a pain with all of the movies & shows that we have backlogged on the HR24s].

I think both my "free HD for 24 months" and this new $10/mo discount will expire about the same time, so I'll plan on another call in about 11 months. :)

Fast forward 2-3 years when Dish comes out with it's newest thing and wants to charge existing customers for it.

You can just switch the company names in your statement, and it will probably be just as true.

Hope the move works out well for you.



I'm sure nobody posting here is under any illusion that Dish will be any different. it's the new bet these companies have that you won't bother switching. I wouldn't be surprised if *I* get back into a situation where I am switching back to DTV. But I'm one that *is* willing to bother doing what it takes to get upgraded equipment at the same price as a new subscriber (aka free). In my case 5yo equipment and 10yo customer deserves at least as good as a new person they know nothing about.

You can also visit www.directvdiscounts.com .  They are always posting friend referrals for people to get the additional $10 off per month for the first 10 months of new service.

 

I hope this helps!!
