    How many years you got in with them? You should be able to get a credit.Especially when you tell 'em you're getting a HMC HD DVR.

    The H25 is simply the only non DVR model that can be used in a Whole-Home situation that is on the current Energy Star list.

    It seems pretty unlikely it's going to cost you $399 if you go through DirecTV directly and are off commitment. Judging the internal DirecTV price based on what 3rd party retailers are charging is pretty pointless.

    I can certainly wait a few more days or weeks to find out what the customer loyalty discount pricing is from DirecTV. (As much as the third-party retailers mentioned in this thread are both highly worthy of one's business, the possibility of saving $300 is worth... $300.)

    He has SWiM. He's now going over 8-tuner limit and needs to get a SWiM-16 install.

    I'm guessing he called DirecTV and said "I need this, I'm a good customer, help me out" and they obliged.

    The $49 was for a SWiM-16, if I'm reading the thread correctly.

    Trying to decide what to do... I have 2 HR24s and an HR21. I want to get to 1 HR34 and 2 other client-type devices. Any ideas? I think I also have to get a new dish :( Would I be best getting 2 H25s to act as the clients?

    Resisting the temptation for now, as the budget can't handle any more big hits. In a few months, who knows. :D

    is it possible (and also price prohibitive) to have this just for 1 tv, right now i just have a hr22 but could use the 5 tuners and pip.

    i thought i read somewhere that there might be a minimum amount of receivers needed to qualify?

    I havent heard. Perhaps to qualify for a DirecTv install there is a minimum requirement. Not sure how they could force you to sub X number of receivers, since the premise for the HR34 is to use RVU clients (without tuners) and they dont even have any of those available yet.

    Guess we will all find out when they ship, and we activate them.

    And thanks for stopping by Robert. Was nice ordering from you today.
