    Just got off the phone with DirecTV to cancel HBO and I asked the guy about the roll-out on the 13th and he said it's going to be the 14th. For what it's worth .....

    Some guy on another forum had DIRECTV installed a few days ago and he got 2 HR24s and DECA installed for what it's worth.....

    I've heard that, too... but suspect it means it will be announced on the 13th and they'll start installing on the 14th.

    Middle...
    There are four markets right now that have been part of the MRV pilot program for a month or more; he's probably in one of those, unless he just got lucky.

    I called a local installer who told me they'd have DECA HR24/H24 on the Saturday the 15th.

    I'll say it again. The Hx24 rollout is not the same as the MRV national rollout on 5/13. While somewhat related, they are not the same.

    Is there a charge for MRV service?

    I called today (5/11) and ordered new DTV service. The rep confirmed MRV was available, but then told me he couldn't add the feature until Thursday 5/13. He asked me to call back on 5/13 to customer service to have them add MRV (confirmed at $3/month).

    My installation is set for Sunday am 5/16. I don't see anything on the installation that indicates that an HR24 or H24 were ordered. I asked the AE if the receivers were the newer HR24 & H24 and he didn't know. But the AE told me they would be MRV capable and also confirmed that only HD receivers and DVRs could use MRV.

    I will report back on Sunday as to the install.

    Any receiver in the HR family is MRV capable. You may get something other than an H24.

    I ordered MRV yesterday, got an appt for earlier this morning. The technician just left. Everything is setup, including network connectivity to my router. For $99 each, I also had both HR20's replaced with two new HR24s to get more recording capacity, built-in DECA, speed, etc. They replaced my dish as well.

    MRV is working like a charm so far.

    Although, I can't test ON DEMAND (which is new to me) yet, because whenever I select an on demand channel it says "1545 (showtime) is currently not available". Hopefully this is something that becomes available after a day or so, per the technician.

    location is San Jose, CA
