He wouldn't know this because he doesn't subscribe to Direct TV....he's a Dish Network guy.
He would if he reads the forums enough. Either way he knows now and can stop posting non stop with the wrong information.
Thanks. I was wondering what it looked like myself. I have been with them for a year now with no late payments and about $100 a month with NFL ST & UFC PPV's but dont know if I need to wait another year till I am not longer under commitment to see this or what. Anyways thanks.
Sorry, I couldn't resist the setup that you volleyed. I actually pulled the image from another post, since I've never seen the hearts deal on my account.
Well, my upgrade arrived via Fedex yesterday. It was a bright shiny new HR22-100. I replaced my R10 with it.
Just thought I'd let people know that dispite Harsh's "knowlege" to the contrary, there are some new rcvr's going out.
Thanks for the update.
Do these hearts deals require activation? I thought I might order an extra HD DVR and put it in the closet until I'm ready to use it.
All recievers require activation.
timmmaaayyy2003 is correct. And here are the requirements from the lease addendum:
So I could replace an old D10 with it right?
Does that restart the 2 year commitment?
Yes, you could replace the D10, but it will restart a 2 yr commitment. Just be sure to call and deactivate the D10.
Wrong....I got one two months ago. They asked me if I needed it installed.....I said I had run the lines myself. I added a new HR21. They shipped it to me...next day no less.
Even without the hearts deal, you can still get an HD DVR (here) for $159 shipped, which guarantees you you a brand new HR22 (with the larger 500GB hard disk), and at a cost of less than $25 more than the DirecTV hearts deal after you consider the sales tax and shipping charges on the DirecTV deal.
I recently bought an HR22 from the seller at the above referenced link.
How can you tell what size the hard drive is? I just got one with a mfr date of May '09. Does that mean anything?
Edit: Duh. Just answered my own question. Couldn't find it quickly here since there is no "First Look" for the HR22, but found info on the web. I guess the HR22 has the larger hard drive
I just did $99 HD-DVR hearts deal. Paid NJ Tax but ZERO shipping, grand total of $105.93. But it was a refurbished HR21-100 manufactured March '08. It arrived less than 36 hours from order which blew me away. I still see the same deals being offered ($99 for HD-DVR, free for the others). I was also surprised to see the unit arrived already activated, just plug, boot, run setup and play--no phone call, no punching in number, nada.
All the hearts deals are still there for me, $99 HD-DVR and free for the rest.
Found out about the hearts deal here and checked and I ordered an HD receiver to replace my last D10 receiver. Free for everything, just a swap out. The receiver was refurbished, but as long as the picture and sound are okay and as expected, I'm not worried. I've had some refurbished electronics last years with no problems. And the receiver did require activation and I did deactivate the old D10. Easy, real easy.
And I still have hearts on my account. Now I have to figure out what I could use next...
Just called regarding adding a HD receiver. I never saw the hearts on my account so I just called to find out what the current deals were for my account, been a subscriber for approx 11 months. The rep said she could take $30 off the normal $99 amount, add $19.95 for shipping and handling, and waive the $49.99 installation charge. I told her everything was set-up could she just ship it to me and there wouldn't be a need for installation anyway. She said sure and I'll give a free month of Showtime for that. I said keep the Showtime, if you waive the $19.95 S/H, we have a deal.
Should be here by the end of the week......:hurah:
By the way, what's the $49.99 installation charge for anyway? I can go to Best Buy and purchase one for $99 plus tax. Would they try to charge the installation amount then?
If you want it added to a new room or if you were wanting to have your current receiver replaced.
If you order on-line, just check 'Self-install' then no mention of any installation fee occurs. Personally, I have had one procedure done by DirectTV installers in eight years (HD upgrade with pole mount) and I never want to see those clowns here again. Ten appointments to make three visits--I was ready to scream.
I just saw HR23's on sale for $179.99 with free shipping on Newegg. Here is the link.
