I just noticed that the two hr22 dvrs I received from d* are reconditioned. I don't care about the free one but paying $199 for the other one pisses me off. I purchased one more from best buy and that is new. Now I'm not knocking refurbished things (I refurbish and repair iPods for a living) however directv offers a short warranty period and that makes me skeptical. Had I known they do this I would have just picked 2 up from best buy or snagged 2 hr23 models from the net.
