    I am a man of my word.
    At first suggestion of a fee, I stopped testing and playing with it, and kept my units all hard wired to both tvs.
    No fee for me.:)

    I voted I wouldn't pay, but the upgrade using a new swm setup was enough for me to change my mind.

    I now have 6 HD tuners (up from 3 HD + 2 SD). HR24 was free, and I'm still on the legacy Total Choice package.

    So new SWM + DECA + HR24 for $150 install + $3/mo was a good deal for me.

    I just dug through the archives to find my post in the original thread, and I'm officially embarrassed:eek:

    Guilty.

    It simply was not an option to not pony up for MRV. Marital bliss would have been in jeopardy'

    I commented previously that $3/mo was too much. I'm not going to pay that.

    Unless I opt for the DECA upgrade, I won't be paying for it. It's just too slow to respond over Ethernet to justify paying for it.

    I recall that I would go 3.00 monthly for MRV service and I am satisfied with my wired network using AT&T U-verse internet unless something changes.

    For them, yes. However it does upset me, especially seeing that FiOS and many of the cable operator's in the area offer MRV as part of their regular DVR service. Not that those providers don't get you in other ways, but I had really hoped Direct would have been more loyal to their customers. I'm not going to sit here and say I'm canceling, but it does make me want to look around.

    I love MRV, but they are using my ethernet and do not think I should get nickel and dimed for this feature. My family uses it and I might get some pressure to activate it. Since my son is off to school in a few months I will probably dump his receiver to help defray the cost. Also I might consider upgrading all my receivers to DECA so every TV has the ability to feed off the DVRs. However a new 2yr commitment for equipment is something I am wary of with this issue and problems I have had with Refer a friend credits.

    I never said anything on this forum, but I've always maintained that I would not pay anything. I was really hoping DTV would recognize this feature's value as a way to bring new customers (or keep existing ones), especially considering that many other providers have this feature for free.

    I used it during the beta and I did like it, but I'm still not planning on paying for it. I can't believe how much I pay for TV as it is...

    $3 is nothing for the service so I have no problem paying for it.

    I don't mind paying the hardware fees, but the monthly is a deal breaker. I'm sticking to my original plan.

    I agree with you in spirit, but FWIW, Verizon does charge $4/month to turn on the "Multi-room" capability of their DVR's.

    I said I wouldn't pay, but only in the hopes that DirecTV would respond to the overwhelming response and price it accordingly. I planned on paying for it all along. No bluff, just a negotiation tactic. It solved a wiring issue for me, allowed me to add an HD receiver using existing wiring and we're happy.

    I have noticed now that it's live and paid for - it works better.

    As much as I protested a charge, hard to say no to 10 cents a day for MRV.

    Even though i don't use it much, $3 is not a big deal. But I'm NOT paying $148 for new equipment just yet. Once the bugs are worked out and perhaps if they run some sort of special, I'll do it.

    Me too. It was only $3/month and allows the non DVR in my office to play back from the other 2 HD-DVRs. But still :grin:

    I would not be paying for this service. It is bad enough that one has to pay for the 5 HD channels wish are showing commercials.
