    Well, just as you predicted, I got my cancellation notice. Guess I'll keep my eyes open for the next too good to be true offer :lol:

    At least I'm not going to have to deal with return shipping and all of that mess. The seller blamed it on Amazon, so just for giggles, I will see if Amazon will do anything because it is their mistake. Doubtful but it can't hurt to try!

    Can someone change the title of the thread if these are not HR24s?

    Better yet, check your credit card. :lol:

    Amazing though, you seem to be the only one who got one for that price. This deal was posted on some other "deal" boards and EVERYONE either had them canceled or got H24's they have to return.

    BZZZZZZZ! Wrong. Read the description:


    It's not a DirecTV box of any kind.

    Amazon has been screwing up all the "cheap" HR24 ads in their marketplace. I'd bet this one is no exception. Going through 3 websites dozens of people ordered them but no one has yet to get one (except the 1 guy here who claims one on the way). They have all been canceled by the seller or shipped incorrect receivers (H24's). The $139 shipped price is more in the realm of reality then the others but still doubtful. The Marketplace description is what the SELLER puts in, the Amazon link you see (which Amazon adds not the seller) has been screwed up for the last 4-5 days. They are using the "standard" HR24 display page on all the ones that have been shipped wrong or canceled.

    I got my "HR24" today - it was an H24. To their credit, Amazon has already issued me my return label and refund.

    I just ordered one from the market place that was $175.99 with shipping and the description said HR24-500. Cheaper than SolidSignal.

    Wish they would have cancelled my order instead of shipping it. Tried to get them to send me the correctly ordered item and they said if it was Amazon selling it, they would have, but since it was Walt's TV they could just offer a refund.

    Ordered one last Thursday and got an e-mail today explaining that it was the NOT an HR24 but an H24 instead, and asked if I still wanted it or if I wanted to cancel the order, I canceled.

    When it sounds "too good to be true" it usually is!

    Can't say I'm surprised.

    I had a similar "bait and switch" experience with a GPS a few years back at Amazon.
