    Dripping...
    If my reply gets you to stop posting in this thread my job is done.

    Listen, folks have been trying to give the best explanations as to why there is only one HMC allowed on an account at a time. Since most of the folks here are not DIRECTV employees and we have NOT signed NDA's people are just coming up with their best educated guesses. DIRECTV has their reasons as to why they have the one HMC limit at this time and they aren't saying. And until they do I guess you're just going to have to live with the one HMC answer or move to another company that will give you everything you want to pay for with no limitations.

    Perhaps in your own fantasy. It is your money, but that does not give you any right to dictate policy to a company. The customer is not always right, despite what you may have heard. There is no battle being waged between you and the company. You are the only party involved and the company will be completely unaware of your false crusade.

    I am still waiting to hear what is wrong with a confidentiality agreement.

    It seems like this thread is so far off topic...the ship needs to be righted somehow.

    Policy is policy. Most are established for a specific reason or set of reasons. That all seems quite simple enough for virtually anyone to understand.

    Whether or not people agree with policies is often debated. Policies also change over time. This issue has been debated alot here, and it appears no one's mind will be changed by reposting the same position.

    At this point there seem to be a number of folks on both sides of agreeing with this policy on multiple HR34's and others who don't agree with it.

    Beyond that...there doesn't appear to be anything new in quite some posts now.

    This actually sounds like a reasonable reason for limiting people to a single HR34. Even for people who don't already have a C31, they wouldn't want to limit people's ability to add a client in a client/server based system when a customer has multiple servers.

    I would think that, as soon as an updated version of the clients, whether it be a firmware update to the C31 or a new client entirely, that can work with multiple servers, becomes available, DirecTV will begin allowing people to activate multiple servers.

    Discuss the topic and not each other. Any more personal comments and it's gone.

    The other issue is the expense of having to swap out SWiM 8's with SWiM 16's.

    People, until some other people on here grow a back bone and break there NDAs you are not going to know what is going on and the reason Directv is fighting having two HR34s or two upcoming HR44s on the same account. We can protest all we want but it is not going to fix Directv's secret serious problem.

    There is no secret and/or serious problem. :rolleyes:

    It's a policy. Simple.

    Once again out comes the tinfoil.

    Policy is what you're fighting/complaining about, and it has nothing to do with NDAs or backbones. :nono:

    Just a guess, but he's probably referring to those here who get free equipment to "test" from Directv, give glowing "reviews" about said equipment and service and then jump in any and every thread where anyone who says anything remotely negative about Directv, only to get more free equipment down the road to "test".

    Don't want to speak for him, but he probably thinks that such behavior is unethical without some kind of disclosure that those opinions just might be tainted.

    Just so you know, this is the word from someone in upper mgmt..typically, a 2nd HR34 is allowed when customer has more than 6 tvs on the account. Not official, but it's being done. That's it. No idea why, no idea if true in practice, but his track record is very good.

    Don't take the word of, "the man" as he is only there to keep the people under lock and key. A new world order is coming in which the man becomes not the man. The customer becomes the CEO and the CEO becomes the customer. Star light, star bright...the day of reckoning is upon us.

    Sorry...I have funny thoughts when standing too near the microwave during a lunar event. I'm not sure what the reason is for HR34 limits, but it is obvious that there IS a reason and it isn't arbitrary. A scenario like you mentioned would make sense in the event of an exception needing to be made for a customer with enough connected TV's.
