    We are in the same place. My wife and I have been thinking about this. We have been paying over $100 every month, with international channels. Directv now has international similar options. Been with Dish for 8 years and now bought an HD TV, so need to upgrade old - 625 non-hd receiver for two rooms.

    Can anyone help us? I cannot sen PM to the dirt team as it says I do not have enough posts.

    There could be any number of reasons, unfortunately most of us here would only be speculating. Only people here who could help you will be DIRT members. Try a PM to one of them.

    Its just been a total nightmare. They say check back and I do and I nothing. I just don't know why they wouldn't want to take care of a longtime customer.

    You are existing customer who do pay them regularly. Why worry about you? ;)

    I know if you pay them every month and don't say anything you are just a sheep. But I however talk to them almost weekly about it.

    I just do not want to pay full price for something that I feel isn't worth it.

    Ah, this is the topic was looking for. I don't have five posts yet (I'm getting there!), but I'd like to someone in DIRT about upgrading. I'm moving to a new home and would like to get a Hopper.

    I've got several questions, but there is one that I have that I think should be a no-brainer: If I buy (and not rent) a Hopper, would there be any monthly fees? I'm guessing no, but I want to be sure. Same thing goes with the Joey.

    Thanks!

    Yes there will still be monthly fees for both. The first Hopper is included, $12/mo for the second. Joey is $7 and the Whole Home DVR fee is $12.00 Buying keeps you from making a 2 year commitment, however you would have to install it yourself..

    Thanks for the help. So what's the point in buying the unit then? If you're buying it, you're pretty much "committed" for two years at that point, and it isn't like you'd be saving money on the install.

    And so that I'm clear, if I wanted to hook up 3 TVs, I would need 1 Hopper and 2 Joeys, right? So, my monthly cost would be (channel package) + $12 + (2 x $7) = $26 + (channel package), correct?

    As I said buying avoids the 2 year commitment with you installing. If you have Dish do it then you will get a free install but a 2 yr contract. Yes $26 sound right. Contact the DIRT folks like Mike http://www.dbstalk.com/user/503431-mikeh-dishnetwork/. They can tell you exactly.
