As you may have seen in another thread, I called DirecTV a couple nights ago to inquire about MRV. The CSR said she had good news in that she could hook me up with a Genie, 2 minis, and MRV for zero dollars! Only extra cost was $3.00 a month for the MRV. And even better, she said that after looking at my account, she said they could drop ship the equipment and all I had to do was call them to activate when I hook it up.
To be honest, after looking through the forums and some pages at Solid Signal, I think there will be more to it than just swapping out my receivers.
I have 2 HR22-100 DVR's in different rooms in the house. I also have a D12-700 in the spare bedroom serving an older TV. So the dish on the roof is wired to what appears to be a switch mounted on the outside of my house. From the switch, 2 cables go to the each HR22 and 1 more cable run goes to the D12. The HR22's have a small rectangular device in between the each cable and the receiver.
So was she lying to me or is it as easy as disconnect one HR22, connect the Genie and then call? and then hookup the 2 mini's they are shipping also?
Seems to easy to me. And I'll be very disappointed if I then have to wait a few more days for more equipment to arrive....
