I want to upgrade one of my SD receivers to an HD receiver (not a DVR, already got 3 of those). Since I have been with D* over 2 years would now be committed for another 2 years? Do they charge for an upgrade? Would it make sense to just buy one of eBay and activate it?

Thanks for the info. Just went on the D* website and checked. Indeed the receiver was free; and I am guessing I would be signing up for 2 more years. What I don't understand - and I probably have to call them - they added a $10 charge for HD service in the cart. When I signed up for D* I got free HD for live.
If you already have free hd, that should continue. It's probably a default setting that shows the charge for hd.

The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

before committing for 2 years, I would call DirecTV and confirm
I agree. If the website is adding a charge that shouldn't be added, I wouldn't just assume that it will be dropped at a later step in the process. I'd call and talk to a human being in order to resolve the issue right up front.
