    Just go into Best Buy and pick one up off the shelf and avoid the shipping charge.

    Call D*, say cancel, you want to switch to E* = $99
    But you get a new 2yr commitment.

    When I got my HR20 from them I just grabbed one off the shelf, put it in the cart and went to the cash register. They didn't ask me any questions whatsoever, I just paid and left. Just grab one and go, just don't let the guy at the kios see you. ;)

    So if I have an HR20 now, could I get an HR21 for $99?

    BTW, anyone know why Best Buys model number is listed as HR21-600?

    We just had D* installed about 2 weeks ago. Paid the usual price for 1 HD DVR and got the second at Costco for the $269. Just saw this thread so I immediately called D*, got a very nice CSR, asked her what could they do for me, didn't think much since we just signed up. She came back and said that they could give me $10 off my bill for the next year. Not too bad for a brand new customer.

    Plus I still get all the incentives from when I signed up plus a friends referral, etc, etc. Makes me kind of smile and thnk I made the right decision about dumping cable.

    I opened my packet, and only have a double and triple points coupon and a 10% off music/movies/video games coupon. No 12% off equipment coupon. Was I missing a coupon? Or is there a way to get it online? I didn't see it on the Reward Zone site.

    Knowing Costco's policies, I'd make a trip with receipt in hand - I would be willing to bet they'll give you $100 back.

    I bought an HDTV there 5 years ago, and it dropped in price about a month later. They gave me $300 cash back no questions asked.

    My packet contained 3 coupons. A 10% off movies and games, and 2 for equipment. 1 was 10% off and the other was for 12% off if I used my Reward Zone card. They must target people differently.

    This is great news. Once they get the SWM out I'll definitely get one.

    I battled to get a good deal on the HR21. All they would do was give me the $299. I went ahead and ordered it anyway and since I had to get out of an old grandfathered package and add the new HD pack I finally got them to credit me $120 over 12 months. Unfortunately I had the install done on Tuesday and read the forums after the fact. I emailed them stating had I known the price would drop $100 2 days later I would have waited. They were generous and gave me the $100 credit as well. So if you ordered one recently its worth a shot to try to get the $100 credit.

    Im happy - $299 - 120 credits - 100 credit = $70 for HR21.

    I think this receiver is finally one to get excited over. I spent the whole first day getting mediashare up and running just for the cool factor :lol:

    I called my sister, and she had the same one you have. She faxed me a copy of the 12% - not sure if they'll take that copy or not, but it's worth a shot. I'll be making a trip to BB over lunch (and I have a triple Reward Zone coupon and $50 in Reward Zone certificates to apply).

    I'm not biting until MRV comes out. I have one HR20 in the entertainment room. But my HR10-250 is still working out well in the bedroom. The only downside is not being able to watch any of the new MPEG4 channels (i.e.- the new HD's) on my bedroom setup.

    But when MRV comes to the HR20's I'll be at CostCo the same day to but a new HR21.

    What is MRV?

    I just got a new HR21 for $99.00 from DirecTV pluse $10.00 per month for 12 months. I feel pretty good about it. It was a retention bluff that worked.

    Do the HD DVRs come with an HDMI cable?

    Multi Room Viewing. Record something in the bedroom and watch it in the family room.

    I am a current DTV customer (7 years) - and I purchased a HR21 for $299 it was installed and activated two days ago. Installation, New Dish, new multiswitch were installed for free.

    I have called DTV today on two occassions and they are not budging they will not credit my account or make any compromises to reflect the $100 price drop today. Any suggestions?
