    After my aborted install last week I was able to get my HD DVR for $99 last week when I threatened to cancel. I was trying to get another one the other day and they said $299 is the best they could do. Thanks to this site I said forget it. Now I need to go across the street and get my second one from Costco for $169.

    No, he just needs to remember to add them, since the HR10 didn't have any.

    OK, I did it! CSR offered me $199 per machine. I mentioned cable, etc, and he transferred me to retention. She offered me $99 for the first machine, $199 for the second, plus $19 handling. I said no thanks, and she added the $10 per month credit for 12 months. This effectively totals $200 for the two HD DVRs installed with new dish. That's good enough for me.

    Install will be in 2 weeks, which gives me time to clear out all the saved shows on my Ultimate TV DVRs. Also gives me two weeks to get a new plasma/lcd for the bedroom! Bring on the "Big Game" Sales (can't call it Super Bowl :lol: ).

    I'm happy to see the price dropped but I'm really disapointed that the HR21 doesn't have OTA. NBC and PBS are two channels in my area that are not carried by DirecTV and I like them a lot.

    Hmmmmm.....

    Well, I guess that makes good business sense if the install requires a new run from the dish or a multi.

    Surely that's not for new subscribers.
    But, current subscribers should not expect a free install from directv when the same is not true at Bust Buy. Or, is that the incentive not to go retail?:grin:

    Only thing I can think is maybe your Costco has a different policy. Just last week I picked up an H20 off the rack and purchased it with no questions asked. The cashier had no way of knowing whether I had had service or not.

    What is this "purchase to own?" What are the advantages?

    If you are an existing customer upgrading to your *first* HD-DVR, the install is free. Hope this helps.

    The HDDVR's are available at $199 (plus S&H, 19.95)
    I kinda laughed though, if the 3-pay option is available to you, it still shows as 3 payments of $99...

    So, alot of CSR's are going to get confused, and then confuse customers...
