I do that with some shows. Do you have Netflix, Hulu+, Amazon Prime, etc? They're great for that.
I don't disagree, if the rules changed later, IMO it would be even more egregious if they were to shut someones HR34 down, who purchased multiple HR34s before the rule.
Allowing the customer to activate more than one HR34 puts the burden on D*. After activating, the customer can no longer send it back to whoever they purchased from for a refund, it would have to be sent back to D*.
D* controls the activation process. D* controls who they sell HR34s to for distribution. If they allow a customer to "purchase" multiple HR34s, then allow the customer to activate multiple HR34s (so the customer can no longer get a refund), and then subsequently deactivate the HR34 and demand the customer send it back (so they can "sell" it again), they are simply asking for trouble.
Anyone who has multiple HR34s ought to be grandfathered.
He was ashamed and removed the model name (as second owned ) from his post today .
Anyway, the 'limit' is not worst to spend time for posting. It should be customer's choice. If he want, he will pay and no more silly rules.
My wife would prefer to fly below the radar, simple as that.
That's OK. But I'm jealous to have such magic women who could not just easy fly, but below radar too. Oh ! .
My beef in other part of my post...
The rules were never changed it was always like that. The system now enforces the rule systemically so that means someone can't ignore it out of ignorance or any other reason. All dealers are required to put the limit of 1 on their sales page for requirements.
With that said the instances of this are so minimal it's not a factor but yet people who aren't impacted, and never will be, seem to want to keep making huge issues out of it.
The limit is 1 and it's that simple. If you need/want more recording then order HD DVR's. In fact the OP would be better off with more HD DVR's as he states that he wants more storages so the more HD DVR's he has the more storage he will have with external drives.
But tell your wife to beware, DIRECTV might just have a "look-down, shoot-down" radar capability.
None of this will be a factor once the 8 tuner HR44 comes out next year.
I hear the HR44 will only have 3 tuners and may be shown at CES. Hmmm?
Point blank question, have there been customers, which D* allowed to activate more than one HR34, who have subsequently had their second HR34s turned off and been told to send them back?
I hope one day same kind of rule in your life will teach you support something more reasonable: like you must have one car, or one pair of pants ...
The two aren't even remotely comparable, P Smith. You are talking about things that directly affect people's lives like one car or one pair of pants. The last time I checked, nobody needed even one HR34 to live sucessfully in society.
It's DirecTV's rule. As subscribers, we have to play by their rules. If they said every DVR must be bright pink, if we wanted DirecTV, we'd all have pink DVRs.
At some point, probably when the supply of HR34s becomes greater, they'll change the rule. Until then, be grateful you don't have a pink Hopper.
Shades, by this can you clarify?
That there will be NO exceptions, ALL those who managed to get multiple activated HR34s, no matter when or how, over one will eventually be found and systematically have the additional one(s) turned off?
Just as soon as Skynet (Genie) becomes fully operational

I would say yes, as you don't need second car or other pair of pants if Ford or Armani decide too.

- Henry Ford, regarding the Model T
It is easy to fill the space. There have been more than a few nags about why a 1TB drive was chosen in the first place.
The point of debate is whether or not a residence needs fifteen tuners.
It's always hilarious when Dish subscribers chime in about DirecTV hardware.
As one of many owners of that device, we all know the fact that the storage on an HR34 can easily be expanded to 2TB today if needed. That exceeds most user's needs. It's also not out of the realm of potential to expand beyond that point some day for the few that need it - time will tell.
So the sky is not falling as some might portray it from the Dishwasher view.
And a particularly ironic criticism considering the Dish Hopper effectively offers the same 1 TB HDD in user space in spite of its 2 TB size.
From the EKB:
"2TB hard disk drive, 250HD/1000SD hours of user space, Dish and user partition sizes are 1TB each"
