    I had some credits end in October, so I wanted to check on this.

    I get charged $10 per month for HD plus $10 per month for DVR service.

    I have HR20, HR22, and an old R10.

    I thought this was suppose to be a $15.00 combined charge? No?

    Thanks

    I can confirm its broken out. But what is nice that is still cheaper than cable. If you had Comcast you would be charged something like 16.95 for the one DVR then another 16.95 for the other DVR. Then an HD Technology fee. So DirecTV is still cheaper.

    So if it's 10 + 10, how come I'm paying 25.00 total for a charge called "Advanced Receiver?"

    You probably have a Genie and are a new customer. That is $10 for HD, $10 for DVR and $5 for Whole Home DVR service.
    I am a long time customer and do not have a Genie or Whole Home service. If I did that would cost me $3 more.

    I believe they charged the $25 regardless of a Genie. They've since changed again, I believe they no longer charge for HD but no longer credit back the first receiver.

    It comes down to new customers pay $21 and existing Subs pay $23 or $25 depending on when they signed up for the service

    Not quite.. New customers are the ones that have only a DVR fee of $15. But they pay for every tv location, where as all older customers pay only after the first tv.

    Also, DVR fee is generally $15 now, and includes all features other than Hi Definition. It's only much older customers who still have things broken out further with a separate Whole Home Service fee which really just means they get a lower bill, and nothing more... Since they have been around a lot longer.

    I signed up in 2012 and I have Advanced Receiver Fee for $25, but the first receiver is credited. For the first year we had some kind of credit for the Advanced Receiver Fee, which expired and they reinstated after I called. But it is set to expire next month.

    Sub since '98, grandfathered Premier which included DVR Service long ago (not TiVo Lifetime). This is what my bill shows:

    Advanced Receiver HD=$10
    Advanced Receiver DVR=$0
    Whole Home DVR=$3


    Total=$13
    11 IRD's at $60 (1st one free). Another $6 in savings.
