I currently have Directtv but also have FIOS for phone and internet. Verizon salesman came to my door trying to get me to add FIOS Tv to my account. I told him that I wasn't interested until the new receivers were available. He said that all new customers signing up now would receive the new receivers. I haven't seen anything that evens indicate that the new receivers are out.  Only thing that I had seen previously was that they should be availabe in Sept. 2013. Can anyone verify that the new receivers are here? Thanks.

Nope, not out, and rumor is that it will be a while.

In 2011, they said end of 2012.
In January, they said May.
In June, they said September.

We'll see.

DirecTV: Genie, H25, CCK, GenioGo, SWiM-16 & SWiM-8, DECA to Gigabit Switch with FiOS (75/35)
FiOS: Roamio Pro's (2), Roamio Plus, Mini's (4) with Ultimate HD (My Roamio Thoughts)

I had a Verizon sales group (yes, three people) ring my bell over two years ago to get me to sign up with FiOS. Just about everything the sales guys told me was wrong. I did sign up a couple weeks later with a phone call to start service, but even then I did not receive a new DVR. I accepted the older model and changed it out at a Verizon store a couple weeks later for the latest DVR. I doubt that you will get the new FiOS media server anytime soon.
