WOW! After getting the run around for a day via email and finally being completely ignored I had no choice but to call. Told the nice CSR I was using the beta and just needed to get activated now that it's out of beta. Also told her I understood it cost $3/mo. That was it! No further discussion necessary - nothing about ordering the kit, nothing about upgrading base package. Nice. I've got Total Choice with lifetime DVR service and now I've got whole home DVR service.
