    Apparently this isn't as much of a guarantee if you live in the sticks. :lol:

    Funny, I thought I lived in the sticks....apparently not. :)

    Either way, I said is was more likely, not a gurantee. ;)

    A guy on another AV forum got the same deal. Pretty cool (he has been with them 11 yrs and is out of contract).

    I called Directv last week about getting a reciever upgrade, and I was told they could not guarantee I would get a HR 24 so I asked about a credit. I got a credit of 150.00 upon activation of HR 24 and they sold me a AM 21 for half price. I bought the HR 24 from Overstock 154.00

    Good luck actually getting that 150.00 credit.

    Ditto!

    DirecTV has told me that they can no longer offer discounts/credits on receivers acquired from other retailers...

    typical from a Dish CSR...

    Though $150 credit is a bit much from a regular CSR.. if it was a supervisor or retention agent though, I could definitely believe that.

    Was told by customer retention that I could purchase two HR24's through solidsignal and when I activated them a credit for $199 would be posted to my account for each activation. Receivers arrive tuesday - will keep you posted.

    I think I got them when I called to deactivate an owned receiver the other day. I said "deactivate receiver" at the voice prompt. They answered thanking me for being a subscriber since Nov and thanked me for being the most important part of D*, the customer, when we were getting off the phone.

    Oops. Didn't mean to bother them :D

    LOL!! I called and deactivated a receiver with DirecTV recently... using the same words you said... but I don't think I ended up at Customer Retention...

    ....at least they didn't mention being CR anyway.... ;)

    I had no intention of leaving - just wanted to talk to the department who actually care about solving our needs and keeping us happy. Not sure what I would do if they called my bluff but it hasn't happened yet.....

    I've read that somewhere else too.

    I wonder if there is anyone here who can verify this.

    I would like to know if this works also. My HR20-100 (with external hard drive) is getting buggier every day. The 500 GB hard drive in the HR24 would probably be all I would need.

    There is a difference in the calibration but no real difference in picture quality that couldn't be gotten through tweaking the TV.
