    Thats a pretty quick price drop. I'd be pissed if I had just spend a good $500 on one...

    Probably just selling it cheaper (discount for new subs only) as he is taking his commission monies and using that to discount the system.

    Yep. This is for new subs. Under "Standalone Receiver - For a second room or if you are a current customer", it lists the 721 as selling for $529.

    Did a search and found a 339 price, but cannot recall the outfit. Maybe this is a good thing like the DP we all got a great deal but the first adopters got screwed??

    The dishplayers were a lot cheaper than the current pvr's however they charge that $10.00 a month fee. Didnt they give a lifetime subscription instead of the 2 or 3 year free deal at one time for the dishplayer?

    You can get around douple those prices or more on ebay. Unless you just don't want to deal with the hassle of selling the recievers yourself, I don't see why someone would do the trade in with Dish Depot.

    Ohh yea, for anyone interested who doesn't want to deal with ebay or wants to get rid of multiple recievers at the same time, I'll give you $10 more than DishDepot is offering for trade in on any of those recievers accept the X000 models. Email kcobra123@yahoo.com.

    I sent them my 2800, Im going to sell my JVC D-VHS receiver on ebay. The 2800 wasn't worth the hassle.

    How much is the trade in value for the 301? $30 as well for do we get a little more on that one since its newer? Do they have to have the remotes, manual, etc. with them?

    Also kcobra, do the receivers have to be clear or can they owe money on them? Do they have to have the remotes with them?

    Jacob: Recievers can have a balance and no remote. All depends on which reciever and the condition it is in. Please email me at kcobra123@yahoo.com with the specifics of what you have.

    You could just run up PPV charges on your old IRD, unplug the phoneline and then when it's full, just dump it. This would be worth more than $30.

    Of course you would be subject to never ending ridicule from other online forum members....

    Me myself, I do not watch that many ppv's anyways, and dont got time to sit down and watch ppv's trying to get money's worth. If I want to watch a movie I will go to the movie theatre or watch the movie packages or something.

    kcobra, what do you do with these receivers since they have a balance on them? do you pay for shipping and do you pay in advance before receiving the receivers? what are the payment arrangements?
