Hello!
I would like to replace two of my H24 receivers with C31 clients. Has anyone had success with DirecTV shipping them out? I have no problem paying the $99 each. Would I be better just ordering through Solid Signal?

I may not know as much as the experts but neither did the experts when they themselves were novices.

Also, in the past (don't know if it is still true) DircTV required a truck roll if you ordered a C31 from them. If you order the C31 from SS you can do the install yourself.

This is no longer the case, DirecTV will drop ship you a C31 if you have an HR34 on the account *and* it is replacing a current receiver. If it is an additional receiver it will force an install.

Seems like getting it from a 3rd party site would be easier.

Agree. I have always ordered my equipment from 3rd parties. I won't allow anyone else to touch any of my equipment.
