    I have a new install scheduled for this Wednesday. I am getting an HD DVR. I see Directv has come out with the cool looking new HDDVR's I was wondering if I was going to be getting one of those? I called DirecTV a few mins ago and was told by customer service there was no way to check on exactly which model of equipment I would be getting. Does this sound about right to you?

    Thanks , Norm

    you probably will not get the HR24 as it is not in the pipeline for regular installs.

    Since you are not in one of the 4 test markets, I'd say no.

    To The Op,
    Directech will most likely be doing your install,
    My local installer comes to my garage for work as of last week NEGATIVE ON the new HR and H 24 being available up here in NH yet.
    As far as what you get its hard to say.But I can confirm it will NOT be new HR24.
    One thing on your install make sure your installer uses 2 monopoles for extra support for your dish, theyre needed because of high winds for stability.

    If an installer does a job with one mono pole, the job is a fail QC wise. Those dishes need the extra support! I have seen some done with one monopole, but it just isn't done right if they are. I also see dishes with monopoles installed wrong. The short one attaches to the mast below the bend and goes straight down from the mast if on the roof. The long monopole attaches above the mast bend and goes off to the side at around 90 degrees and attaches to the roof. If the dish is attached to a wall, the the short monopole attaches above the bend in the mast and goes straight back to the wall. The long goes on next and goes out to the side of the mast and attaches to the wall.
