I've always had the Premier package and I've always paid for my DVRs. I don't understand.
Yup, that's how I look at it.
No, because there actually is something else called a DVR fee. DirecTV had the mirroring fee long before DVRs even existed.
A few years ago with the Premier package there was no DVR fee, it was free. Now with the Premier package there is a separate DVR fee except for those, like me, who had Premier when there was no fee and we're grandfathered in.
How can it be a "DVR Fee" when you pay it on a non-DVR box too? It's not a DVR fee, it's a mirroring fee. The DVR fee is separate and not per box.
OK, I understand your point now. I have absolutely no experience with receivers that aren't DVRs. I had no idea that they were mirrored too. Sorry.
No need to apologize.
The mirroring fee is a per card/receiver fee so that your plan can be "mirrored" to that receiver as well. If you own the unit is a "mirroring" fee and if the unit is leased it's a "lease" fee.
20 if it's hd...
That's insane. The one I always liked back in my cable days, Time Warner charged per month for the remote. It wasn't much, but still was a charge. Though I never tried to return it and get the fee removed.
Never mind someone already countered with the same question
Solid Signal sells a Zinwell DVR without telephone connection and fees to receive OTA HD signals without monthly fees. Also it can be used with analog or HD tv's. They told me I can even record Directv programming also.http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.as...a-HD-DVR-with-320GB-(BV-980H)&sku=87440900302. Check this out.
It can record Digital TV. That is not the same as DirecTV
Would you mind clarifying your OP? I'm not sure if you meant the "DVR" fee or the "Mirroring" fee. I don't mind the DVR fee, but I'd be happy to see the mirroring fee go away.
From the website:
This is how it can "record Directv", by running the output from a DirecTV receiver in real time into the Aux A/V input of this unit. From the picture on that site of the back of the unit, the A/V input consists of 3 RCA jacks for composite video and left and right audio. This is the lowest quality SD output available from current DirecTV receivers.
But it is DTV.
Sorry, I couldn't resist.
You should try harder.
But it beats paying the $7 monthly fee.
You're still paying $7 for the DirecTV it must hook up to. You're not saving money and you can't record HD sat stations.
This would benefit people still with SD programming and they would not have to pay DVR service. Thye could just have it turned off or get a standar receiver. This unit gtes OTA HD signals. I can't see paying for HD and that's why I haven't bought an HD TV. I'm just waiting for my contract to expire to see what other options are avilable at that time.
But you'd pay $200 for that DVR just to avoid a $7 DVR fee? After 28 months, you will start to save money. That makes no sense.
