Okay, that's as I expected.
So basically, by "purchasing" the HR44-500 from the aforementioned website you insure that you'll have a HR44 versus a HR34 which you may end up with by going with the free upgrade that DIRECTV has been spamming my DVR message box with.
All other considerations would be the same as going with the upgrade via DIRECTV instead of Tommys(or what ever it's called).
It's $160 "insurance" on getting the better model DVR.
Does that about sum it up?
This is the only way to guarantee you will get HR44 going the "leased" route.
You can only buy "owned receivers used from ebay, "maybe sometimes brand new but rare"
And Directv , and last I talked to them HR44 were not for sale.
And HR24 was $450 to own it.
