    Any receiver "purchased" from a retailer will be a lease. In order to get an owned receiver, you will need to find someone selling it here, CraigsList, or ebay. In any case, before purchasing make sure to get the receiver ID and contact the Access Card Team at DirecTV. They will be able to tell you if the receiver is owned and if you will be able to activate it. If you do purchase it, you will need to order a new Access Card (free, but $20 shipping), and then call back the Access Card Team to activate it as an owned receiver.

    If you are just looking at reducing that $10 HD fee, I would seriously look at the AutoPay option and getting the HD credit. You can set up AutoPay to use a credit card so if there is any issue, you have time to dispute the charge if needed. You also won't need to worry about an new costs for receivers.

    Solid Signal generally has R22 DVRs available. The lease fee is the same $99 as the R15/16, however a couple of times recently they have had some very nice offers on the unit including a BOGO offer prior to Christmas.
