I have gotten pretty much free deals on HD-DVR's or HD receivers. This last one I called about their free move & SD-DVR deal. I asked them nicely about I only want the HD-DVR, pondered the receiver selection for a couple of minutes. I ended up paying $100 for HR23-700, $20 S/H + $8 Tax. The CSR offered me $10 credit for 12 months or $20 for 6 months, and I took the 6 month deal. I had to extend my contract for another 2 years. It DOES depend on how much you pay for your service every month. I pay over $130 a month plus $$$ for the sports channels.
