    I guess, and everyone has their preference... however, cable companies are not renowned for being a value. That was my point.

    If this "new" information from SKY is to be believed, individuals would be CRAZY def. OUT OF ONE'S MIND to sign a two year agreement for an advanced receiver AND be expected to pay for it. I thought I would go back to D* once all the MPEG craziness was over with, but it's looking like George Bush has a better chance of being elected ACLU President than me going back to D* at home.

    So, are you proud that you posted false information a day before SkyReport reported false information? Nice fabrication.

    Here is what is being reported at satelliteguys:
    "Here's the official news on the August 1, 2005 price breaks.

    1. Only for new subscribers, the $50 DVR rebate will go up to $100, so a SD DVR will cost zero after the rebate.
    2. The new $100 DVR rebate will be good for the HR10-250 as well.
    3. The H10 or if we have the new H20 MPEG 2/4 will go down to $199 for new and existing customers. Sorry it's not going to be free.

    We may also see a very small drop, something like $50 to $100 max. on the HR10-250.

    To take advantage of any of the above deals the customer must agree to a 2 yr. DIRECTV service agreement."

    Not much there worth a two year commitment. I was hoping for something decent to make my leap to satellite worth while. Guess I'll wait and see what Dish offers new subs when their Mpeg 4 hardware comes out. Not sure I like the thought of going with Dish but they have to be better than Comcast...I hope.

    I dont believe D* would hang their subs like this after annoucing on the last 3 conference calls that they would upgrade all current HD subs for free! That will caost them to loose ALL the current HD subs. I think Roberts info on this is wrong and misunderstood!!! :nono2:

    ...Okay, more info has been released. The new Mpeg4 receiver "WILL" be free as a upgrade to current HD subs. However, current SD customers who would like to upgrade to HD will be required to pay $199 for a new Mpeg4 HD receiver rather than the current $299 today. Also, they can choose from the list posted above, one of the available discounts but doing so would require a 2 year commitment! :rolleyes:
