    Yes, if you want to watch shows on those TVs from a DVR in another room.

    Huh? Where are you guys getting anything that he said it was an owned unit? I don't see that anywhere on what he listed, and I was simply asking if anyone has been able to get it dropped shipped and no installation.

    Has anybody been able to obtain one for $150 or less without going the retention route? I don't want to threaten to quit when I have no plans on doing so if I don't get what I want. I just want one because it's the only way to be guaranteed a faster receiver than my current HR20 if I trade it in.

    Could be wrong, but he's probably a DirecTV employee. Possible clue is Alabama.

    Even if said DVR is the HR34?. I apologize as I am very confused. Doesn't the HR34 have the tech built in where I just have it installed and can watch recorded programs to a non-DVR box without getting Whole Home, a CCK, MRV, or any other additional fee? Again thank you all for your help.

    It has the tech built in, but D* has decided to charge to use it.

    They (retention) told me I needed whole home and a 2nd receiver on the account to get the HR34. Said they don't allow having an HR34 as your one and only receiver. I'm only repeating what I was told - I don't know any better;)

    It would've cost me $760 with tax:eek2: I'm maxed out on credits, but $399 for HR34, $199 for whole home (I guess that includes SWM, which I need), $50 install (doesn't getting SWM count as install?), $50 upgrade fee, plus tax. Was gonna arrange for a free AM21 though:hurah:

    Directv needs to get their CSR's on the same page. Seem like one does what he wants and the other won't do nothing. Seems like they have a problem in training their people. I will just stick with what I got for now. Good luck to everyone that's trying to get one at the lowest price.

    I never once said I was going to leave. I asked if there was a deal on the 34. There was and then the retention agent said I also qualified for another free hd-dvr and a year of free showtime. Also, by going the retention route your call gets answered much more quickly.

    Called and ordered mine today. Reached retention with the "Cancel", "Cancel" command for the IVR, and said I wanted to replace one of my DVRs with the HR-34.

    The very nice CS agent said the normal price was $399 + install, but my account was allowed to have it for $150 installed. SOLD! Note, I never asked for a discount, she opened with this. Install is on Saturday.

    I've been a DirecTV member since 2000. With service like that, I'll be a member for many more years to come.

    I've heard the same, but really hope to avoid it. We have no need for MRV. I just want more than two tuners without continuing to have two separate boxes with separate storage. The potential for future expansion (via MRV and RVU) is a bonus.

    I have the old Choice Extra + Hd DVR package, so $7 DVR fee is included. I have 2 HR 20's. Am a customer since 2007.

    If I replace one with the HR 34, then do I need the 2nd HR 20 or can I get by with a H20 receiver only?

    How will it affect the DVR fee ($7) and the Leased Receiver fee ($6) if I replace the HR 20 with an H20 and the other HR 20 with the HR 34?

    Will the $7 fee go up to $20 (or is that just for new customers) for the HR 34?

    What happens to the $6 fee?
