    I've heard before you can either 3 or 4 dvrs on one account while paying for the one dvr price ($6.00).

    Which is it, 3 or 4?

    And yes, this is related to the R22, local store has a few and I was considering...

    As far as I know you can have as many as you want. You would just need enough tuners to run to all of them. Maybe someone else would know for sure. I thought the lease fee on each receiver covered everything else. Then there is just the one DVR fee no matter the amount of DVRs.

    IIRC, it's limited by the technology (max number of outputs you can get from the dish or dishes) and nothing else. I've had four at one time (I have three now) and others here much more then that all with only one DVR fee.

    Add as many as you like. :)

    However, remember, each DVR will have a mirroring fee. So each receiver has it's own fee.

    Personally, I have 4 with a single DVR fee and single HD fee.

    It's as many as you can wire your house for. Meaning you need lines coming from some MS or SWM setup, add another DVR, your bill goes up $5 for the programming mirroring fee, the HD fee and the DVR fee are per acct, not per box.

    I have 5 DVR's (4x HD, 1x SD). I had once heard that D* has a limit of 20 receivers on residential accounts, but I don't know if that is still the case. Regardless, the single monthly DVR fee (as well as the HD fee, and any other monthly fees for services) cover all the receivers on the account.

    I've got six DVRs (5 HD and one SD), plus two non-DVR receivers. One DVR fee per account. $5 mirroring (aka lease) fee per receiver/DVR.

    I don't remember exactly, but it's not limited by dish (you can have more than one, right :)) .. It's limited by the number of receivers that they can stack onto one single account. Certainly 3-4 is too low for many people. I have 5 DVRs myself for example, and all fall under the same fee consideration.

    11 HR DVRs on my account, 2 HD receivers. I've heard there might be a limit, but I sure haven't found it... :)

    Cheers,

    I just realized I made a mistake in my post. I missed the "HD" part of the OP.

    So I only have four HD DVRs, not seven.

    That's correct. That limit *can* be overridden, but it is rare to do so and requires a visit from a DirecTV supervisor to confirm that all receivers are present on the account at that residence. It also requires 24-48 hours to set up on DirecTV's end.

    I have 14 with one DVR fee (actually no fee as I am grandfathered in for lifetime) and all I pay is the standard additional receiver fee for every extra receiver, HD or otherwise.
