I also posted and got the same response from BBB. Hope it hurts them in the long run.

I got a rebuttal response through the BBB from Beachaudio.
Beachaudio responded:

"We forwarded the information we were told by our supplier of DirecTV. Unfortunately, that information was incorrect and we have tried to make it up by offering a future credit off next order."

At least they finally admitted that the information was incorrect. Still don't think we are getting the whole story. It will permanently damage their credibility with a lot of folks on this forum and elsewhere.

Yea, it's also a bit strange that BeachAudio no longer shows any D* receivers on their web site. The entire thing stinks.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

WOW, I knew that $249 offer was too good to be true.

I bet BestBuy raised a stink with Directv since they wanted to be the "exlusive" HR20 retailer. To be undercut by a small shop on price, and lose exclusivity was too much to them they used their power to influence Directv to pull Beach Audio's Authorized Directv Reseller status. Knowing what a shady company BestBuy is I am not surprised.

BeachAudio lost their D* dealer status by sending out some emails saying that the HR20 had been recalled (completely false) and that the recall was the reason they couldn't deliver the HR20s to the customers that had already ordered them. I doubt a monsterous company like BB cares about the actions of a small online retailer like BeachAudio.
